Sports Medicine – Lameness and Performance Evaluation
UW Veterinary Care has the top specialists and treatment options to get your horse back in the show ring or back on the trail. Our team of experts are skilled in the diagnosis of lameness and other performance-related problems, and treat patients with the most advanced tools and therapies, including:
- Diagnostic tools to pinpoint the source of your animal’s issue, including nuclear scintigraphy and digital radiography
- Surgical procedures
- Shockwave therapy
- Stem cell injections
And because horses may experience a wide range of health issues, our specialists are trained in cardiac and respiratory care.
UWVC is also the first and only veterinary hospital in the Midwest to offer dynamic endoscopy, which allows our experts to evaluate airway movement and function at the most critical time – while your horse is exercising.
Since the same doctors that will see and treat your horses in the clinic with compassion also dedicate a significant portion of their time to doing research out of the clinic in the areas of tendon healing, bone remodeling, joint therapies, and airway function, your horse’s care will always be at the most cutting edge of science.
