Lameness investigations

Lameness is one of the most common problems in equine practice. Our vets can tailor the extent and depth of any lameness examination to your requirements. We will use a combination of techniques to investigate lameness, which may involve nerve and joint blocks to localise the cause of the lameness. Our digital x-ray and ultrasound equipment are available to provide immediate and high-quality imaging. Lameness investigations can be performed at your yard, although we will need a flat trot-up area and ideally a soft and hard lunge surface for more mild lamenesses.

Pre-purchase examinations

We are available to perform thorough 2 and 5-stage vetting for our clients and non-clients. We cannot vet horses which we have seen before as a practice or belong to our clients due to potential conflicts of interest. Please contact us to discuss your individual requirements.

Poor performance investigations

Your horse does not need to be competing internationally in order for you to feel that he/she is not performing as well as they ought to be. This can be a very difficult area to investigate. Common underlying issues that can cause poor performance include mild lameness, liver disease, stomach ulcers, dental problem, kissing spines and muscle soreness.

Dentistry

We have all the equipment necessary to perform thorough equine dental care. We are happy to perform dentistry ourselves or work with BEVA/BAEDT registered equine dentists. You can find out more on our Equipment page
