Lameness and Sports Medicine

Identifying the source of lameness in a horse is a puzzle that requires a multi-modal approach. Our doctors will begin with a lameness examination that includes static palpation and observation of movement. They often utilize diagnostic imaging such as digital radiography (x-rays) and ultrasound to identify the problem. Treatment recommendations vary based on diagnosis, but may involve injections of a joint or soft-tissue with steroids or regenerative therapies, shockwave, mesotherapy, or alternative medicine.

Medicine

Unfortunately horses get sick, but we are here to help! The gastroscope and endoscope allow us to visualize the upper airways, guttural pouches, esophagus, and trachea in order to diagnose various disorders. We often utilize laboratory testing to diagnose diseases and metabolic disorders, assess organ function, and monitor overall health. We also perform allergy testing and assist with immunotherapy, and have access to a new vaccine treatment for equine melanoma.

Preventative Care

Our goal is for your horse to have a long, healthy life, and that starts with preventative care. We recommend all horses receive bi-annual veterinary examinations, vaccinations, and deworming, as well as annual oral exams and dental floats. HCVS offers a discounted Equine Wellness Plan that includes all recommended preventative medicine. 

Complementary and Alternative Medicine

Complementary or alternative therapy refers to treatments that are not considered traditional or western medicine. They are used in conjunction in order to provide a more comprehensive approach to your horse's health care. We utilize many complementary therapies to promote tissue healing, increase circulation, restore nervous system function, and improve the immune system.
