Routine dental care is an important part of your horse or pony’s health care. It ensures the animal’s comfort as well as retaining their ability to chew and utilize their feed more efficiently.
Chiropractic care is an alternative therapy that is becoming more popular with horse owners. It focuses on restoring the spinal column’s normal movement to promote healthy neurologic and musculoskeletal activity. Regular chiropractic care can help manage pain in chronic conditions as well as keeping performance horses comfortable, balanced, and performing their best.
When purchasing a horse, it is highly recommended to have a prepurchase exam performed. This allows the veterinarian to fully examine the horse and detect any existing or potential health or performance issues that may affect the horse’s future performance. These findings will help you make an informed decision about whether purchasing the horse is a good investment for your situation and intended use of the horse.
Digital Xrays and Ultrasound
Digital radiography (x-ray) has revolutionized Equine Medicine. Now we are able to quickly and easily diagnose potential causes of lameness and bone abnormalities with less stress your your horse. Digital radiography allows us to view the images immediately and to retake images or to take additional views quickly if needed.
We also offer digital ultrasound to help diagnose and monitor soft tissue injuries, in addition to providing information when breeding your mare(s.)
Lameness and Wellness Exams
A horse’s mobility is vital to their everyday life and happiness, so lameness can be a major issue. Lameness is any abnormality in the gait or stance, usually caused by pain, illness, or injury of some sort.
There are a variety of causes, so a thorough examination may be necessary to determine the issue. We have vast experience treating lameness, so rest assured that your horse is in good hands.
Proper nutrition is the foundation to a healthy horse that can perform to the best of it’s ability. From forage to concentrates, and body condition scoring to nutrient requirements, we can help you formulate a feeding and supplement program for your animals in different age and performance groups.
Annual exams and simple blood work to check liver and kidney values have the potential to alert us to early changes that may give us important information about your animal’s health. We understand the changes your animal will have as they become older, and we also know the importance of keeping your animal healthy as they enter their golden years.
