Lameness problems can range from straight forward issues to more complex problems. 

The following tests may be performed to further evaluate lameness in your horse: 

  • Evaluation of gait on a lunge line on our lunging pad and walking/trotting "in-hand" on grass and/or hard surface . 
  • Examining the condition of the horse's feet. Hoof testers may be used. 
  • Flexion tests (stressing different joints to localize pain)
  • Once the lame limb is identified, sequential peri-neural blocking can more specifically locate the area of the leg affected.
  •  Digital xrays of the affected area
  • ultrasound to assess ligaments and soft tissue.

I wanted to thank you again for your help last Friday. There are many animals on my farm. I love them all but I was particularly fond of little Gabby. It was only a couple weeks ago we saw her rolling in the dirt and so delighted with herself and I remember how she loved to lay on Jeff's chair and bat the tail of our other cat as she walked by. I had hoped she could have experienced more of these joys in her life.
Your skill in diagnosing and presenting her case and your compassion in helping me understand what was best for Gabby was very much appreciated.
