Therapeutic Podiatry

  • A large percentage of our equine practice is spent diagnosing and treating lame horses. Proper hoof care and farriery is a vital part of the treatment plan and future performance of your horse. If the horse’s feet are not balanced, trimmed and shod properly, any other medical, surgical, non-invasive, re-generative or alternative therapy will not be effective. We have a very good working relationship with very competent farriers. This is essential for successful outcomes and welfare of your horse.
  • Most of our Lameness cases are worked up with the diagnostic aid of Digital Radiography. We can take very accurate, computer-generated measurements from these radiographs, and use them to formulate a specific prescription to trim and shoe the horse’s foot. This is essential to recovery from lameness and return to performance.

We also artificially inseminate mares and perform Embryo Transfers.

Vaccination

 

  • Boehringer Ingelheim Equine Vaccines
  • Protect your horse with the full Vetera® line of vaccines- Up to 7-way protection, a range of combinations, and trusted West Nile virus (WNV) vaccines.
  • Vetera WNV vaccines set the bar high. Vetera Gold and Vetera Gold + VEE, which protect horses against diseases in 1 convenient vaccine. And with the addition of even more vaccine combinations, the full Vetera line now provides horses with maximum protection that can be customized to meet their needs, while requiring fewer injections.
  • All Vetera vaccines are formulated utilizing our proprietary Ultrafil™ Purification Technology, which removes most of the extraneous proteins and allows the horse’s immune system to focus on the relevant antigens.

Nutrition

  • Platinum Performance® Equine is a comprehensive foundation supplement for all horses. Platinum Performance® addresses equine health at the cellular level, providing a special blend of more than 55 natural ingredients that support the fundamental health of each of your horse’s 12 trillion cells.
  • Farrier’s Formula® was developed to provide the nutrients needed to enable horses to build strong structural and connective tissue proteins (tendon, ligaments, bones, joints). Developed almost thirty years ago, it has always contained nutrients such as phospholipids, omega fatty acids, etc. that have only recently been recognized as important “players” to help produce healthy dermal tissues.
  • Polyglycan is a patented formulation utilizing naturally occurring components of the synovia that play a central role in maintaining or returning the physiological environment of the joint to homeostasis. Contains Highly viscous aqueous solution of defined fractions of purified Hyaluronic acid, Chondroitin sulfates A-and-C in a 10% solution of N-acetyl-D-glucosamine.

Chiropractic

  • Chiropractic care is a holistic approach. Although it doesn’t replace traditional methods, chiropractic care can be a great addition to treating many health and performance problems. Many horses have responded well to chiropractic adjustments. This can include treating gait abnormalities, alleviating pain in the back and neck, pressure on nerves and many other issues that can impede performance or every day well-being of your horse.
