Lameness

If your horse’s movement is limited or uncomfortable, our experienced vets can investigate and diagnose issues.

Lameness

Assessment of lame horses is at the heart of our service, with several hundred horses in the course of the year being assessed for lameness.


To get the best images the practice has:


· a high-powered gantry mounted x-ray machine capable of imaging all areas of the horse including backs, pelvis and necks


· A scintigraphy unit for bone scanning


· and several ultrasound scanners to assist image soft tissues

There are three designated surfaces to lunge horses on and a large outdoor arena which can be used to observe a horse being ridden.
