Equine Lameness

At Reata Veterinary Hospital, our mission is to keep equine athletes healthy and performing at their best.

As the leading cause of economic loss in the equine industry, lameness can significantly impact a horse's quality of life and performance ability. That's why we offer advanced therapies and preventive measures to keep your horse in top condition.

Diagnosing Lameness with State-of-the-Art Technology

Injuries and disorders affecting the bones and joints are common in equine athletes. We use digital imaging and other diagnostic tools to quickly and accurately identify the source of lameness. From there, our horse vets can develop a customized treatment plan, utilizing regenerative therapies to hasten your horse's recovery and improve performance.

Preventing Lameness with Regular Exams and Care

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. That's why we encourage all our clients to enroll in our free wellness plan. With regular exams, hoof balance assessments, and wear pattern analysis, we can catch and correct issues before they turn into lameness.
If you have any questions or concerns about your horse's athletic injury or lameness, we're here to help. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and take the first step in keeping your equine athlete healthy and performing at their best.
