Lameness exams


lameness_exams.jpgLameness exams start by looking at the whole horse instead of just focusing on the main problem. The reason for this is usually more than one problem may be present and they're easy to miss if the entire animal isn't checked over.

The exam will usually include a gait analysis, hoof testers, stress tests and possibly radiographs of the affected area.  It's not uncommon to radiograph the normal limb for comparison.
