Equine-Time of Need Care: When the time comes to say goodbye to your equine friend, we offer compassionate euthanasia services at your farm.
Equine-Geriatric Care: Aged horses can have sub-clinical health care issues that can be identified and treated before they become a problem. If your horse is over 15 years of age we recommend a complete physical examination and blood testing to establish baseline values.
Equine-Surgery: Recumbent surgery of the horse is performed for castration. Standing or recumbent surgery is offered for biopsy, mass removal, and laceration repair. More complicated procedures may be referred to a specialist. Our clinic also participates in the MN Gelding Project.
Equine-Digital Radiography: We have the capability to use x-rays to visualize bone for abnormalities including arthritic changes, fractures, OCD, bone cysts and bone infection. Our unit is capable of providing digital images for viewing on the farm.
Equine-Routine Dentistry: Horses need regular preventive dental maintenance every six months to one year. Unlike people, horses' teeth have an eruption rate of two-three mm per year. The teeth should wear in correspondence to yearly eruption rate. Malocclusions, or improper position of the teeth, can lead to many health issues and behavioral problems.
Equine-Wellness: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" That saying holds true for horses also. As part of our routine care, we provide vaccinations, deworming, Coggins testing, and dental care. At the time of service, we can discuss any issues you may have with your horse including nutritional needs, training programs, geriatric care, etc.
Equine- Pre-Purchase Examinations: An extensive physical examination, lameness evaluation, and neurologic examination are offered by us prior to purchasing a horse. The information gathered is used by the prospective buyer and/or agent to determine whether the horse will be serviceable for it's intended use. Depending upon exam findings, laboratory testing, digital radiographs and/or ultrasound may be recommended.
Equine-Lameness Examination: Evaluate the locomotion of your horse. We use a variety of techniques to identify the source(s) of lameness including physical examination and palpation, flexion tests, and nerve blocks. Digital radiography, ultrasound, and laboratory tests help us to further evaluate the source of your horse's lameness.
