Our Services

Explore Our Comprehensive Range of Services

dentistry

A thorough annual dental examination is important to identify and correct any malocclusions, sharp points, or periodontal disease before they cause an issue for the horse. We use a combination of hand tools and motorized equipment to make these corrections and restore balance between the incisors, molars and temperomandibular joint. Dental abnormalities can not only affect eating and how the horse accepts a bit but also other performance limiting issues such as bending and collection.

lameness & sports medicine

Lameness examinations and flexion tests allow us to diagnose a current soundness issue or to detect subtle subclinical changes which could be affecting performance. Diagnosis can sometimes involve diagnostic nerve/joint blocks, digital radiography and/or ultrasonography.

prepurchase examinations

Prepurchase exams include a thorough examination of the entire horse and involve a lameness exam with flexions, conformation assessment, heart and lung auscultation, as well as an ophthalmic evaluation. Diagnostic imaging is available at an additional cost.

reproduction

We offer limited on farm reproductive services such as pregnancy diagnosis and prebreeding exams.

diagnostic imaging

State of the art digital radiography and ultrasonography are available both in the clinic and out in the field.
