Equine Wellness Programs: A Smart Approach for Horse Health & Owner Engagement
Equine wellness programs provide a comprehensive approach to horse health that focuses on proactive management of disease and injury. These typically include regular veterinary exams, vaccinations, and dental care, which helps improve horse health, longevity, and performance.


The Benefits of Equine Wellness Programs 

There are many benefits to enrolling your horse in an equine wellness program that include:

  • Prevent disease and injury. Regular veterinary exams can help identify and treat health problems early. Vaccinations can help protect horses from infectious diseases while dental care helps prevent tooth decay and other dental problems.
  • Improve horse health and longevity. Horses that receive regular preventive care are generally healthier and live longer than horses that do not.
  • Increase horse performance. Horses that are healthy and well-cared-for are better able to perform at their best.
  • Foster stronger client-veterinarian relationships. Equine wellness programs provide an opportunity for horse owners to get to know their veterinarian and develop a strong relationship.


How Equine Wellness Programs Work

Equine wellness programs typically involve a series of regular veterinary exams. These exams typically include a physical examination, a dental exam, and a vaccination review. 


Equine wellness programs may also include other services:

  • Parasite control: This may involve deworming the horse or using other methods to control parasites.
  • Dental care: This may involve floating the horse's teeth or other dental procedures.
  • Nutrition counseling: This may involve discussing the horse's diet and making recommendations for changes that can improve the horse's health.
  • Other services: Some equine wellness programs may also offer other services such as lameness exams, Coggins tests, complete blood count, sports medicine consultations, or rehabilitation services.

How to Choose an Equine Wellness Program

When choosing an equine wellness program please keep in mind:

  • Individual horse's needs. The program should meet the specific needs of your horse.
  • Affordable. Equine wellness programs can vary in price. Choose a program that fits your budget.
  • Convenient. The program should be convenient for you and your horse. Schedule appointments that fit your schedule. 


Equine wellness programs are a valuable way to improve horse health and longevity. They can also help to foster stronger client-veterinarian relationships. If you are looking for a way to improve your horse's health, an equine wellness program such as AcutePlus® ( is a great option.
