Bannon Woods Veterinary Hospital provides a variety of veterinary sports medicine services to patients in and around the Louisville, Kentucky area. One of these is the pre-purchase examination of horses.
Pre-Purchase Exams are extremely in-depth examinations performed on a horse for a prospective buyer. The evaluation includes examining every part of their body from hoof to ears and nose to tail, checking for lameness, ocular issues, lung health, and equine conformation or the horse’s bone structure, musculature and body proportions. The evaluation process entails utilizing X-rays on joints and hooves, endoscopy exams for the horse’s throat, drug screenings; these examinations can be very detailed depending on the buyer’s request.
Bannon Woods makes full use of digital radiology and digital ultrasound technologies to ensure that the results are thorough. The documentation provided allows for better case follow ups to determine and monitor therapy choices. Likewise, this documentation also allows for an exceptional added value for pre-purchase examinations providing extensive insight in to the health of the animal.

Your pet’s eyesight is a key part of their health, function, mobility, and quality of life. Losing the sense of sight from injury or disease can be a major disability for your pet. Once this happens, it might be very difficult for them to live a normal life.
The common eye problems that your pet might experience include cherry eyes, corneal wounds, dry eyes, conjunctivitis, glaucoma, cataracts, and entropion. Depending on the severity, these diseases can cause permanent eye disability. The good news is that most potential eye problems can be prevented and medically addressed with early diagnosis.
Our board certified and highly experienced veterinarians at Bannon Woods Veterinary Hospital can diagnose and treat these diseases. With early detection, several eye diseases can be prevented. Our veterinarians may perform a Schimer tear test to measure tear production and fluorescein stain to determine if there is a corneal lesion on your pet’s eye. They also perform regular health examinations and monitor your pet’s eyes as they age.
