Lameness Examinations Near Lafayette LA
If you suspect any lameness in your horse, we can help. Our doctors will thoroughly examine your horse to locate the precise location of lameness, make recommendations and determine a treatment plan. During an examination, be prepared to discuss your horse health history and exercise regimen in order to help us determine possible causes. As much as noting health history is important, our doctors will examine your horse's gait and look at how they bear weight as well. Additionally, joint injections may help localize the source of unknown lameness.
Joint Injections Near Lafayette LA
Since the source of lameness pain in horses can often be hard to pinpoint, joint injections can be especially useful in this case. When nerves are blocked in joints, we're able to locate the source of your horse's pain. Additionally, joint injections may be used to administer anti-inflammatory medications. If you're concerned about your horse's ability to run or jump or you'd like to maximize their performance, joint injections may be helpful. Contact us for more information today!
