Lameness investigations

5th March 2016

Lameness may be caused by many different pathologies, some of which can be diagnosed on the basis of a thorough clinical examination and others that may require investigation either at the yard or at the clinic.

At the Baschurch clinic we have the facilities, equipment and expertise to enable a thorough lameness investigation. We have a 20x30m fibre sand arena, a hard lunge surface and trot up area.

To help with the diagnosis and treatment of lameness conditions we have a digital x-ray machines, ultrasound and shockwave machine. We also have the facilities to perform a number of different treatments, IRAP, PRP, stem cells and the ability to perform surgery where required.
