So I just made a huge moved (US-Canada) with my mare and I need to find a new vet. I’ve been reading about local vets, looking at websites, people’s specialties, etc.
I’d like to get my mare a general wellness exam just to get a baseline on her vitals and health. I’m also thinking of a lameness exam since she is in the early teens and just made a long haul. She is working well, but not moving under herself as I know she can and we are about to start jumping again.
So, what do people recommend when it comes to vetting a vet? I feel like calling a couple up just to chat with them about their philosophies, etc. I’ve asked around and most people just use the vet that normally comes to the barn. Which is ok…I live in a performance horse rich area though, so I know there are some GREAT vets around.
Since it will be a couple hundred with the exam and barn call, I don’t feel like having a bunch of people out.
