I’m expecting an in-utero foal in late Spring and have the opportunity to vet it before accepting ownership of it… but not entirely sure what to vet for!
I’ve done a lot of reading and there doesn’t seem to be much consensus around what’s even useful to vet for as far as xrays go. The only thing I’ve seen an agreement on is obviously no flexions.
The foal will 100% be getting a health check necessary for insurance which covers super basic things like checking for any deformities and its IgG reading. Is there anything else worth doing on top of that?
Goal would be to find anything that would be a dealbreaker or things that could be maintained and possibly solved with relative ease - saying that, though, I am concerned about finding something that may solve itself but has to be reported to (and thus excluded from) insurance…
Also would love to know of any vet clinics around Longmont, CO that would be good to use. TIA!!
