Diagnosis of Lameness

EQUINE LAMENESS EXAMINATIONS

Lameness in horses is common and our experienced vets offer thorough examinations to diagnose problems which may cause this condition.

How does it work?

  • Lameness exams generally take around two hours for a thorough consultation.
  • In some cases nerve blocks are used to determine and isolate areas of concern.
  • Visual assessment and movement in a straight line and on different surfaces are often important in the diagnosis of the problem.
  • Radiographs, blood tests or other diagnostic work may be required.

Lameness may be caused by a number of factors which require careful evaluation. At the end of the investigation, your veterinarian will provide you with a diagnosis of your horse and recommend treatment options.
