The PPE takes approximately 2 hours to perform; it requires a box or equivalent for the initial examination, a level area for trotting up and a suitable area for exercising the horse; a competent person to ride the horse is also necessary. We take a blood sample from all horses presented for PPE, this sample is sent away to be stored at an external laboratory and can be tested for various pain relieving and sedative drugs should there later be any suspicion of drug administration at the time of the exam. The sample is stored for 6 months.
The examining vet will endeavour to give you a verbal report on the day of the examination and a written report will follow 2-
We prefer not to carry out a PPE on a horse belonging to one of our clients in case of potential conflicts of interest. We will, however, proceed in such a situation if all parties are happy that no such conflict exists.
