Equine Client Information
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.

- 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?
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?
- What types of animals do you treat?
At Florida Equine Veterinary Associates we focus on the health and well-being of sport horses. 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.
