What to Expect at an Equine Appointment

Knowing what to expect from your first appointment will help make the process more pleasant for both you and your horse.

Gather Patient Information

Before your horse's examination, your vet will work with you to gather medical history information about our patient. This will inform diagnostics, prescriptions, and treatment planning.

Provide Details of the Issue

Your vet will review your horse's history and discuss any issues. You can ask any questions you want, and we'll dedicate time to answering them.

Examination, Diagnosis & Treatment

Once your horse has been assessed, we will provide you with a diagnosis, any required vaccinations, and options for treatment. Your veterinarian will work with you to determine a treatment plan for your horse.

After the visit, we will create a detailed report of the diagnosis, the discussion had with you, and your horse's treatment plan.

  • How can I prepare my horse for their appointment?

    Whether your horse is scheduled for a regular check-up or you've called about a more serious issue, please ensure that your horse is properly groomed. It is more difficult for our veterinary team to make a proper assessment and detect issues if your horse is covered in mud. 

    Please make sure to give our vets a heads-up regarding any behavioral issues your horse commonly displays. If the reason for our visit is due to abnormal or concerning behavior, it is always helpful if you can film the issue just in case your horse decides not to show that same behavior while our vets are examining them.

    It is always helpful if you keep records of your horse's medical appointments. Informing our vets about the medical issues your horse has had in the past, or treatments they've had is incredibly helpful, especially when we are making farm calls and do not have immediate access to our records.

    In an emergency, we understand that it can be difficult to clean your horse or take videos to show your vet. Make sure you never compromise your safety or your horse's. If your horse is displaying signs of colic, make sure to take away all food sources and monitor them closely until your vet arrives. Do not let them roll as it could make their condition worse.

  • What types of payment options are available?

    As most of our services are offered right at your farm, we require a credit card on file for ease of payment and so you don't have to come into the clinic to settle your bill.

    Payment in full is expected at the time services are provided. We accept payment by cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.

  • Will I be provided with an estimate of costs?

    We do not usually provide estimates for the cost of care before providing treatment to patients.

    However, treatment plans and/or estimates can be provided upon request prior to service.

  • Should I call ahead to book an appointment?

    Yes, please call ahead to book an appointment to ensure we have room in our schedule to see your horse or deploy our mobile services.

    If your horse is an existing patient with us and needs emergency care, you can contact us at any time. We offer 24/7 emergency care for horses with our mobile unit. If your horse is experiencing an emergency at any time, call us right away and we can send our team to you.

  • What is your appointment cancellation policy?

    If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can offer the space in our schedule to other clients or offer emergency care to patients in need.

  • What types of animals do you treat?

    At Florida Equine Veterinary Associates we focus on the health and well-being of thoroughbred racehorses. All of our services are provided on-farm or at the home location of the horse using our state-of-the-art mobile veterinary units.

  • What are the fees associated with a veterinary appointment?

    You are financially responsible for the initial examination fee and any diagnostics or treatment that you consent to for your horse's treatment. This payment is due at the time of service.

  • What are the fees associated with an emergency visit?

    A deposit or payment may be required prior to treatment for some services. Once your veterinarian has examined your horse, an estimate for treatment will be given to you to determine a treatment plan.

    If further diagnostics, hospitalization, or surgery are required, your vet will discuss the next steps with you and explain all fees involved. 

  • Can you help with my veterinary insurance?

    We’re happy to help you fill out insurance forms for your horse's appointment.
