Lameness Center

AVS Equine's doctors are sought after for their ability to diagnosis and create a treatment plan for performance horses.

We have a significant lameness caseload and take pride in the confidence many of our in-state and out-of-state clients put in us when they ship their performance horses in to our doctors so that we can get them back in the game! When you entrust your performance horse to us you can be sure that they will be thoroughly diagnosed. Our doctors have the knowledge and equipment to not only make the diagnosis, but to follow the diagnosis up with treatment options including joint injections, computerized hoof balancing, arthroscopic surgery, etc. If your lameness is a result of bone chips or OCD lesions we have an excellent surgical team that can normally perform surgery within a few days of diagnosis.

Why is a Pre-Purchase exam recommended by my veterinarian?

Whether this is your first horse or you've owned them for years, schedule a pre purchase exam before bringing your next one home. If you're ready to buy then you've already thought about why you're buying a horse. An examination could tell you if it's a good investment depending on your style of riding and the job you have planned for your new equine friend. In addition to examining your horse for lameness, our doctors can test for equine diseases and overall dental and general health.
