Lameness assessments by the veterinarians at Canberra Equine Hospital are thorough and supported by our modern x-ray and ultrasound equipment. Advanced imaging including scintigraphy and MRI can also be accessed, as well as detailed reports from veterinary radiologists. Evaluations can be performed at the hospital where we have a range of good working surfaces for lameness assessment, or on farm if the horse cannot be transported. Therapeutic options are varied from anti-inflammatories and corticosteroids, IRAP, PRP and stem cells, to joint protectives and acupuncture. We strive to diagnose the complicated lameness, provide you with a good idea of prognosis and give you back a horse you can ride!
We also welcome the opportunity to work with your regular farrier, including sending through x-rays and discussing our findings, so the best possible evaluation and therapy for your horse can be instituted.
