What shots does she probably need/what to expect when the vet comes out
The vet is coming out very very soon (I emailed her about making an appt. and she emailed me back saying that she'd get back to me tonight to schedule something) and I'm not entirely sure what to expect. I've never watched a equine vet do any sort of check on a horse, so I'm basically totally clueless.
The plan is that Lacey is going to get a full exam, including lameness (if that seems to be necessary in the course of the evaluation) and I'm going to have the vet check her eyes since the last vet to see Lacey said that she had "changes in her inner eye" but told me nothing about what that meant, just said there was nothing I could do.
Then, Lacey most likely needs her teeth done (they haven't been done in the three years I've had her) so they're going to get done. According to the vet, she does a conservative power float and I've heard really scary things about power floating... She said that she's very conservative (and I mentioned my concerns) but I'm still scared about it...
And Miss Lacey needs her shots. What should I expect she needs? We go to camp every summer where horses fresh off the auction block share a fenceline (not my favorite set up but it's the best I can do) with her, so that probably will change what she needs compared to a horse that stays in a certain place year round...
So what are normal things to expect? And what shots is she probably going to need (just so I can prepare my wallet, hahaha)?
I assume she'll probably need to be locked in overnight/for a few hours since she'll have been sedated while her teeth are done...
