Performance Equine Veterinary Service provides ultrasound procedures to equine patients in our practice and on the field. Ultrasound can help to better identify problems (i.e., thickened small intestine, tendon lesion) and understand the extent of many injuries, which helps guide diagnosis, treatment, time off, and prognosis. Pain management, correct biomechanics and proper support are one of the most important treatments for this disease. This is a disease that requires a great level of commitment from everybody involved in the life of that particular horse; owner, trainer, groom or care taker, farrier, veterinarian and others. It can take weeks to years from a horse that has suffered from laminitis to return to athletic function or even to be able to walk comfortably.
