The veterinarians at Clover Valley Veterinary Services perform comprehensive lameness exams both on-farm and at our facility. Before making a diagnosis, we make a complete assessment of the entire horse including a visual analysis of the horse’s gait and athletic ability. During the exam, we may also utilize diagnostic tools such as digital X-ray or ultrasound to analyze the bones, tendons, ligaments, and soft tissue.

After the lameness exam, we will make a diagnosis and develop an appropriate treatment plan. The treatment plan may include K-laser, chiropractic, or acupuncture therapies. Regular check-ups are performed throughout the process of rehabilitation. Call us at (360) 917-5887 today to learn more about our equine lameness exams and treatment planning.
