Lameness

Our goal is to partner with owners and trainers to maximize the performance of their equine athletes. We do this by accurately identifying both clinical lameness and subtle issues that may not be readily apparent but still effect performance. Most soundness issues are not from one problem. The interplay of the horse’s four limbs and axial skeleton present a complex domino effect when one part is hurting and other areas compensate. Lameness diagnosis and treatment is both science and art requiring a keen eye, precise diagnostic anesthetic techniques, high resolution imaging and state of the art treatment modalities.

New lameness treatment options include stem cell therapy, interleukin 1 receptor antagonist (IRAP) and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Digitally guided delivery techniques have improved our ability to administer these treatments directly into injured tissues to get horses back to work quicker and reduce the number of repeat injuries. Navicular disease continues to be a leading cause of lameness in the western performance horse. New treatment modalities like OsPhos and digitally guided navicular bursa injections have improved treatment response in this challenging condition.

We are excited to introduce our new Vet Rocket Digital X Ray. It's rugged exterior and portable design make it easy and conveniant for both in hospital appointments and farm calls.

    Dentistry for Horses Like people, horses can develop dental problems. Also like people, some horses can be stoic in the face of major dental pain while a minor dental issue may compromise the performance of a more sensitive horse. This is why horses need regular exams to maximize their dental health. Foals ...
