LAMENESS INVESTIGATIONS

Lameness and loss of performance cases often require specialist investigation. We have the expertise and facilities to diagnose and treat all forms of lameness at our diagnostic centre. Our specialist facilities include multiple examination boxes, a variety of surfaces and all-weather lunge rings and an all-weather arena for ridden assessments. We offer a complete range of diagnostic nerve and joint blocks and a complete range of digital imaging techniques. Our clinicians are experienced in dealing with all types of horses for the diagnosis and management of:

  • Joint, tendon, ligament and bone injuries

  • ‘Resistive’ behaviour when ridden

  • Multi-limb lameness
