We are a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) approved equine hospital.
If you have a horse with a lameness or poor performance issues, please call the clinic to discuss the best approach to allow further investigations into these problems.
In some cases, the cause of lameness will be relatively easy to determine based on a physical examination. In other cases, a more prolonged and detailed examination will be required.
An in-depth lameness evaluation (including nerve and joint blocks) can be very time consuming and is often necessary to identify the origin of a horse’s lameness (especially chronic lameness). Your horse is likely to have to stay at the clinic for the entire day. The presence of the owner however may not be required for the entire day, so there is the opportunity to leave the horse with us to continue the investigations. Most horses will be able to go home in the evening, although in some cases the examination may need to be continued on another day.
