Lameness Diagnosis

To help horse owners better understand the tools we routinely use at VetWerx to evaluate their horse’s soundness, the following section of this website reviews a series of actual cases we have treated.

We first discuss your horse’s anatomy, using diagrams and actual limb dissections. We then demonstrate our ability to visualize these structures using digital radiography and ultrasound. Finally we examine some traumatic injuries and developmental abnormalities that you may encounter with your horse.

Please note that all of the images were taken on site with our own equipment, and the pathology represents real cases that we have treated. Treatment modalities that we can provide to help your horse are discussed in a separate section of this website – “Treating Your Horse’s Lameness“.

Please select a specific anatomy at the left to read more details about our diagnosis process.
