There are many things to consider when choosing the right doctor for Equine X-Rays. Whether the horse needs them, how many areas, how up to date the equipment is for high quality and who is reading them. All of these have either short or possible long term cost effects.
Stress, strain or injury can take a toll on any horse, even one with no obvious conformation defects. When lameness occurs, you should contact your veterinarian promptly. A prompt examination can save you time, money and frustration by diagnosing and treating the problem immediately, possibly preventing further damage.
When buying a new horse it is very important to know what you are purchasing. Whether the horse will physically be able to perform the duties you intend to buy it for or if there are underlying issues that maybe costly in the future. There are several types and levels of pre-purchase exams depending on the cost of the horse, the intended use or performance and where the horse is coming from.
Ultrasound is a medical imaging technique that allows us to visualize the internal architecture of many soft tissue organs. Disease or injury to soft tissue structures causes a change in the appearance of the tissue so the use of ultrasonography allows us to diagnose, document and quantify the extent of the damage. Ultrasound is performed initially to diagnose injury or disease however it is also used extensively during follow up examinations to monitor and assess the degree of healing, particularly in tendon injuries.
