Getting info from a vet??
Have had my boy for almost 3 years now, and the gal I got him from told me she 'lost' the contact info on him so had no history, nothing on him. ( the gal I got him from only had him a few months before deciding he was not going to work for her...) I figured maybe she got him off Craigslist or something and let it go, figuring I would never know anything about him. ( but seeing little glimmers of some show history...) He has some lameness issues that I would like to know about as well, such as how long he has been having the issues, what was tried before...
ANYHOW... I mentioned to the gal I got him from ( a coworker ) that I wished I even knew what Area he was from ( not a lot of large animal vets around... so maybe I could find out which was used..) and lo and behold.. she suddenly remembered who and where she got him. ( still no address or phone # but at least a name and city... and a mutual coworker knows who the gal is...and is trying to contact her for me...)
Long story short... but now that I have a name, and I am assuming used the same equine vets we do ( like I said.. not many to chose from!) I wondered if the vet would be able to get me any info. Or is it like people and they wont give you medical history without a release? ANy ideas?
I am going to ask the vet when he comes for the well-horse check up this week, but wondered if anyone has tried to get a medical history on a horse they bought before? Would be great if we could 'blend' his medical charts-
