Candlewood Equine offers a progressive new approach to veterinary care. Our Wellness Program embraces a focus on preventative medicine based on the specific life-stage of your horse. With our initial visit, each patient can be assessed individually based on factors such as breed, age, and environmental challenges. Next we offer recommendations for prevention, nutrition, and diagnostic work-ups appropriate for your horse. This gives us the opportunity to identify and address potential problems before they develop into something more serious. Early detection of disease can greatly improve the quality and length of your horses's life.
The key to Candlewood Equine's Wellness Program is an emphasis on the annual health examination. There is an old saying “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. This concept can be applied to keeping our horses healthy and happy. We believe that annual physical exams, vaccination and deworming programs, nutritional counseling, regular dental exams and early detection screening are the foundations of our preventative health care program. Our role is to educate you on those procedures and medications especially beneficial for your horse. This allows us to be more flexible with our recommendations, and gives you more control of your horse's healthcare.
