Lameness Exams

Lameness exams in horses can range from being a straight-forward, to diagnose the problem affecting only a single limb to a complex, multi-limb problem requiring several diagnostics to evaluate and treat.  Many times, a combination of  veterinary exam findings and owner input are necessary to get a better understanding of  the problem.  Our veterinarians use a logical pattern of diagnostics to accurately diagnose the source of the pain and start the appropriate treatment.  The owner’s role in the examination is to provide an accurate history of when the lameness began and how it has progressed, both prior to and after the initiation of treatment.
