SPORTS MEDICINE & LAMENESS
Our practice focuses on the equine athlete. We assess your horse’s ability to move and any pain, change or uneven movement, including soft tissue, musculoskeletal, and joint pain. Lameness exams begin with, palpation followed by watching the horse move and flexion tests. Examination results may indicate additional diagnostics.
Veterinary or animal chiropractic is the art and practice of noninvasive spinal manipulation with a focus on neuro-musculo-skeletal health. Patients generally enjoy their adjustments and owners notice a difference in their horse’s ability to move freely. Any horse would benefit from this modality, although we see a huge improvement in horses that have sacroiliac (SI) pain, poor conformation, poor overall performance or those looking to get that extra 10% from their horse in competition.
Dental exams are an important part in maintaining your horse’s health. We strongly believe our patients should receive a sedated dental exam by a veterinarian followed by any necessary dental work. We recommend yearly dental exams and floats.
We strive to keep your horse healthy. A big part of this includes preventative medicine: Vaccines, Fecals, Deworming, Smart Pak/insurance exams, Digital EIA Testing (Coggins), Digital Health Certificate, FEI Passports, Microchips, and more.
