Internal Medicine Consultation and Examination
There are a myriad of infectious, inflammatory, and metabolic challenges your horse must face in a lifetime, and in general, their immune system and physiology are up to the challenge, but when they're not, an equine internist is your best choice for comprehensive exams, diagnostic decisions, and evidence based treatment plans.
We strive to give you the most current equine medicine information gleaned from challenging Continuing Educational Meetings as well as that found in Veterinary and Human Journal Articles (click on: ACVIM Consensus Statements to find examples of comprehensive infectious disease reviews).
NOTE: In 2017 the ACVIM will publish it's review of Borrelia (exposure and infection) and Lyme disease in horses. It will inform you as to why the oft heard statement "My vet said that's the highest Lyme Titer they have seen" has no correlation to whether or not your horse has Lyme disease.

Equine Infectious Anemia and Coggins Testing.
Interested in the incidence of EIA in 2016, and why the statement that "only horses that show (and/or travel across State lines) need to be tested",
USDA-APHIS guidelines and information are available

The most important horses to test may be the ex-show horse and pets that are "retired" to pasture. They are rarely tested; as opposed to show horses which are tested every six months or so.
We know the cost can be prohibitive which is why Newmarket-Indialantic Equine has discounted pricing on all "retired horse/pony" Coggins tests. Contact us today for more information.
