Equine Lameness Exams
Like humans, horses often run through any pain they may be feeling. But the longer physical ailments go untreated the greater their potential to cause catastrophic breakdowns in the future.
We perform lameness diagnosis and evaluation. This includes procedures such as diagnostic nerve blocks, ultrasound technology to evaluate any soft-tissue inflammation or tendon injury/problem and digital radiographs, allowing for real-time diagnostics. Digital radiography is available to aid us in diagnosing lameness.
Only after the full lameness exam do we make a diagnosis and develop an appropriate treatment plan. Regular check-ups are usually performed throughout the process of rehabilitation. Our 2 fully equipped mobile units perform farm calls, or you may bring your horse to our hospital in Easton for a lameness exam.
