What to know when scheduling appointments for Services on the Farm:
- Diagnostically, we have the ability to perform digital radiographs (X-Ray), digital ultrasound, and endoscopic examinations on the farm. In addition we provide advanced treatments on the farm, such as shock wave therapy.
- The veterinarian will need a covered work area that has a direct power supply.
- For a lameness or pre-purchase examination, our veterinarians require an arena with soft footing and a safe area that has hard footing to assess the horse for soundness. We ask our clients to be prepared to ride during the evaluation if requested by the doctor.
- All of our dental procedures require a covered area, warm water, and electrical power. These requirements are essential for the veterinarians to perform a dental float on your horse.
