Abnormalities in gait are some of the most common causes of decreased athletic performance and discomfort among our patients.

The diagnostics of a lameness evaluation may include:

  • Palpation
  • Hoof-tester application
  • Observation at different gaits in hand/under saddle
  • Flexion (stress) tests
  • Diagnostic anesthesia (regional and joint blocks)

Once the problem area is located we can use imaging to help diagnose the issue at hand.

There are multiple treatment options depending on the cause of lameness. Some of the treatments we offer include:

  • Joint Injections
  • Stem Cell Therapy
  • Medical Treatments (OsPhos, Aquequan, Legend)
  • Nutraceuticals and other supplements

Surgical treatment and rehabilitation will be referred to an appropriate veterinary center.
