Digital ultrasound provides high quality, detailed images of the soft tissue structures of the body.

For soft tissue injuries, a personalized rehab program is created according to the type and severity of the injury.

 


Video Endoscopy

 

We have the capability of utilizing endoscopy to evaluate your horse. We have a 1.5 meter and 3 meter fiber-optic endoscope available to use at our practice. 

With the 1.5 meter endoscope we can evaluate your horse’s upper respiratory tract, guttural pouches, bladder, and uterus. Endoscopic examinations of the upper respiratory tract is an important tool in diagnosing and addressing respiratory abnormalities. 

The 3 meter endoscope allows us to examine your horse’s esophagus, stomach and entrance to the small intestine. Gastroscopy helps diagnose equine gastric ulcers, esophageal obstruction and other conditions that may affect the equine stomach. Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS) is an extremely common problem in performance horses that may affect your horse’s performance if left untreated.These ulcers can cause weight loss, abdominal discomfort or colic, poor appetite, poor hair coat, and attitude changes. 

Prior to having a gastroscopy, your horse needs to be fasted overnight. Water can be provided up until an hour before the procedure.
