Lameness Evaluations

Lameness evaluations are a critical aspect of racehorse care, as they play a pivotal role in the performance and well-being of these extraordinary equine athletes. Lameness, often subtle and challenging to detect, can be caused by a variety of factors, from musculoskeletal issues to underlying health conditions. It is during these evaluations that the expertise of equine veterinarians truly shines. With a keen eye and a deep understanding of the biomechanics of racehorses, they meticulously assess the gait, movement, and overall soundness of the horse. Utilizing advanced diagnostic tools such as flexion tests, radiography, ultrasound, and even gait analysis systems, veterinarians can pinpoint the source of lameness and design tailored treatment plans.

Digital Radiology

Digital radiology has revolutionized the way we diagnose and manage musculoskeletal issues, offering a swift and accurate window into the horse’s skeletal system and beyond. This advanced imaging technology uses digital sensors to capture high-resolution X-ray images, eliminating the need for traditional film and chemical processing. In the high-stress environment of horse racing, where even minor injuries can have a significant impact, digital radiology plays a pivotal role in expediting the diagnostic process.


Ultrasonography offers a non-invasive and highly detailed look inside the equine body and is an important diagnostic tool in the world of racehorse healthcare. It utilizes high-frequency sound waves to create real-time images of soft tissues and organs, allowing veterinarians to visualize and assess structures such as tendons, ligaments, muscles, and reproductive organs. For racehorses, whose physical condition is paramount, ultrasonography is instrumental in the early detection and management of injuries, as well as the monitoring of reproductive health.

Sales Evaluations

Sales evaluations offer prospective buyers and sellers a comprehensive assessment of a horse’s potential and value. In the competitive arena of horse racing, where the stakes are high and investments significant, these evaluations serve as a crucial decision-making tool. Experienced equine veterinarians specializing in sales evaluations conduct a thorough examination of the horse’s physical condition, soundness, and overall health. They assess factors such as conformation, gait, and any existing health issues that may impact the horse’s future performance or breeding capabilities.

Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic surgery for racehorses represents a crucial and often life-changing aspect of equine veterinary care. In the highly competitive world of horse racing, where a horse’s physical soundness can make all the difference, orthopedic surgery is a beacon of hope for addressing musculoskeletal injuries and issues. These skilled procedures can range from arthroscopic surgeries to repair joint problems, to more complex surgeries like fracture repairs or soft tissue procedures.

Upper Airway Surgery

Tailored to enhance the breathing and overall performance of racehorses. In the world of horse racing, where every breath and stride counts, the health of the upper airway is paramount. This type of surgery addresses issues such as dorsal displacement of the soft palate, epiglottic entrapment, or laryngeal hemiplegia (commonly known as roaring) – conditions that can significantly impede a horse’s respiratory efficiency.

Pre-Purchase Examinations

Pre-purchase exams are the cornerstone of informed decision-making in the racehorse industry, where thorough assessments are essential for buyers, sellers, and, most importantly, the well-being of the horse. These evaluations are a comprehensive health and soundness check, aiming to uncover any potential issues that might affect a horse’s suitability for its intended purpose.
