AAEP Focus on Sport Horse Pre-Purchase Exam

PPE05 - Getting to the Heart of the Matter: When Specialized Testing is Recommended in a Pre-Purchase Exam


Discover the features of a thorough physical exam (resting and exercising), pertinent historical questions to evaluate the cardio-pulmonary system, and portions of the exam that should be tailored to the horse’s intended purpose. 

Findings that are unlikely to be a problem, as well as those that warrant more in-depth, specialized tests will be discussed, with particular emphasis on the echocardiogram and electrocardiogram (resting and exercising). 

Common potential results and the likely impact on athletic potential will be mentioned.
