Our Equine Sports Medicine & Imaging Service offers a one of
a kind experience for the special needs of the competitive
horse. Led by clinicians nationally recognized for their
expertise in lameness, pperformance problems and prepurchase
evaluations, we see horses for a broad range of conditions from
simple hoof abscesses to complicated and unique lameness problems.
Our service also has a full-time certified farrier that provides
services including simple walk in hoof trimming and shoeing to
corrective shoeing for complicated foot problems. We have the
largest radiographic machine in the state, which allows us to
examine difficult to image areas like the hip, spine, and shoulder
of the horse, and we have the only nuclear scintigraphy unit in the
state. We are committed to providing the highest quality service to
all of our clients.
Although our service commonly consults with veterinarians and
many of our cases are referred, no referral is needed for an
appointment. To schedule an appointment with our service, please
The faculty of the Equine Sports Medicine & Imaging Service
is dedicated to the successful performance and quality of life of
the horse. We work closely with 5 board-certified radiologists that
assist in the interpretation of the radiographs, ultrasounds, and
nuclear scintigraphic examinations. In addition to proving clinical
services, we also teach numerous classes and instruct veterinary
students and house officers in equine lameness.
