Focusing on lameness and pre-purchase exams, our full-service ambulatory practice brings the necessary diagnostic equipment and tools right to your stall door. High-quality, portable digital radiograph and ultrasound images can be obtained on site. Upper airway endoscopy is also available to evaluate the health of your horse’s respiratory tract. Digital Coggins tests and health certificates are offered, as well as comprehensive blood panels or specialized testing.
Once a definitive diagnosis has been found, determining and providing the appropriate therapy is just as important to getting your athlete back into the show ring as soon as possible. Injuries can be daunting, but with the aid of appropriate therapy, recovery time and rehabilitation can be optimized to reduce valuable training and showing time.
Depending on the needs of your horse, Dr. Guardia will help recommend and provide the best treatment options. Some therapies offered include intra-articular therapies(joint injections), mesotherapy, regenerative medicine such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP), interleukin-1 receptor antagonist protein (IRAP), stem cell therapy and NeoVet Shockwave therapy.
Nutrition, immunization, and dental care all encompass a healthy horse. Our goal is to keep your horse healthy in every aspect. We offer routine dental floatation, vaccinations, parasite control strategies, and nutrition counseling to help keep you on the road to success.
