Lameness Diagnostics and Treatment

DVM referral specialty service offered at: Butte Veterinary Center and Watford City Veterinary Clinic

A lameness exam is necessary to evaluate the locomotion of your horse. We use a variety of techniques to identify the source(s) of lameness including physical examination and palpation, flexion tests, and joint and nerve blocks. Digital radiography, ultrasound, and laboratory tests help us to further evaluate the source of your horse's lameness.
