Lameness

A thorough lameness examination is essential to diagnosing soundness issues.  Often lameness issues are not visible, but subtle decreases in performance, head tossing, and other small signs can indicate a lameness issue.  Our veterinarians at OCEC can help you in determining if your horse has a lameness issue and will work with you to diagnose and treat your horse's lameness.
