In order to diagnose certain conditions in our patients, we need technology to help us. Some of the services we offer here include:
- Digital Radiographs that allow us instant results of bone studies
- Ultrasound that allows us to accurately inseminate and check for pregnancy in mares, as well as "look" at lumps and bumps, and to check tendons and ligaments for injuries
- Endoscopy that allows us to take a camera right into the horses upper airways to look at possible causes for drainage or noises, or into the stomach to check for gastric ulcers, growths, or neoplasia
The veterinarian will recommend these services on an as needed basis. However, by being able to offer them at our clinic will save you a trip to a larger facility such as NC State College of Veterinary Medicine.
