We at Panorama Equine Medical & Surgical Center are committed to you, our client, and the health of your horse. As your veterinarian, we would like to form a partnership so that you may learn more about a preventative health care program that works – a program that allows us to provide the best possible care for you and your horse. Preventative medicine leads to good health and helps avert life-threatening disease, such as colic and other medical/surgical issues.

Repetitive efforts to educate our clients on this common subject have not always succeeded. We still have parasite issues causing disease problems in the equine population. PreventiCare, Parasite Control, and our Preventative Health Care Program may be the management tool you’ve been looking for.
