The scope of the examination and the selection of diagnostic tests chosen shall be determined by the buyer in consultation with the veterinarian(s) performing the exam. This may be anything from a brief physical exam to a complete lameness exam with diagnostic blocking and radiographs. We highly encourage the purchaser to be present during the exam so they may be shown any findings and they can be immediately discussed. If the purchaser is not able to attend the exam they must be able to be reached immediately by phone or agree to a pre-determined extent of examination regardless of any findings at any time during the exam.
