Managing the Equine Athlete

Managing the Equine Athlete

  • Lameness Evaluations

    • Our Peterson Smith Equine Hospital + Complete Care ambulatory veterinarians have the knowledge and instruments necessary to identify and treat many causes of lameness. Our veterinarians evaluate lameness cases through a series of visual examinations, palpations, hoof testing and flexion testing. Digital radiographs and ultrasound are also available, as well as other diagnostics such as nerve and joint blocks that can localize the cause of lameness. Once the cause of lameness is identified, our veterinarians develop a treatment plan. Some cases will be referred to our Sports Medicine Department.

  • Therapies

    • Peterson Smith Equine Hospital + Complete Care offers joint injections, PRP, IRAP, stem cell, laser, A2M, acupuncture, shockwave, CURO and chiropractic services to help get equine athlete back in action. Our veterinarians can work closely with your farrier to maintain proper hoof care.

       

       

  • Pre-Purchase Exams

    • Prior to buying a horse, a thorough veterinary exam can identify causes of concern or suitability of horse for intended use, and give insight on future maintenance. The exam can be tailored to the purchaser and the horse. Diagnostics include a thorough physical and soundness examination, radiographs, ultrasound, endoscopy and blood work, including drug screening.
