Equinosis

Equinosis Q Lameness Locator

A recent addition which has proven to be lifechanging for our clients, their horses, and us as veterinarians.

The Equinosis Q is a sensor based lameness system that detects asymmetry in the horses gait.

It’s great for a preseason check up, a purchase exam, or anytime we are presented with a lame horse.  It detects 2mm of asymmetry where the human eye only does 8 if trained!

It can detect lameness in horses that may not show lameness until many hours or miles or days of work. It can also help us detect percent improvement after a nerve block.  It can help us on recheck after treatment to tell us improvement percentagen. It can also tell us if the gait changes with flexion.  We love it!

Platelet

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

This enables us to use the horse's own blood and treat joints / tendons / ligaments such as hocks, fetlocks, coffin joints, backs, flexor tendons, suspensory ligaments and necks.

 

This therapy is especially useful for horses that cannot have steroids.

SAA

Serum Amyloid A Blood Test

A stall side blood test that enable us to detect inflammation or infection often before there is a fever or before the white blood cell count changes!
