Lameness

It can be very frustrating as an owner when your horse suddenly becomes lame, often with no apparant cause. Conversely, it can be just as distressing if your horse has become lame secondary to an accident or other traumatic event.

At Walwa Veterinary Practice, we are experienced in carrying out thorough lameness exams, endeavouring to find and treat (if possible), the source of your horse's lameness issue. We have a portable x-ray machine at our disposal if we feel this is necessary. Unfortunately, some lameness issues can take time to resolve, but we will be with you each step of the way as your horse recovers.
