Practice Philosophy

Newmarket-Indialantic Equine believes in the FEI Codex which states: "the welfare of the horse is paramount". We do our best to apply evidence based principles to all our patient care. Horses are sentient and inquisitive critters, and thus at each clinical call appointment, we don't rush; we take our time so your horse is not just comfortable with our 1st appointment, but their behavior improves with each visit. We limit the number of daily appointments to be able to spend more time with you and your horse. Charges are not based on product mark-up, but on our knowledge & expertise, and the time spent with you and your horse. State of the art treatments are utilized, but with complete explanations of the current research and efficacy. 

Your Role? to consider what your "chief complaint(s)" may be- that is to say what concerns you most about your horses' health and/or soundness- and we encourage you to ask questions, as this is the only way you can assure that your horse is being well cared for and that you understand the course of action. Too few clients (and patients in human medicine) are "advocates for care", and we want to be sure that this is an important part of your initial visit and any follow up appointments necessary.
