Kopec Veterinary Associates provides a thorough soundness evaluation of your horse either at your farm or our clinic. These evaluations can be helpful in preparation for competition season, to ensure your horse is moving at his best, or when you perceive there to be a change in your horse’s gait, enthusiasm for work, or overt lameness. By observing your horse at the walk, trot, and/or canter, we are able to hone in on asymmetry in the gait and identify source(s) of pain. Unsoundness (aka, lameness) can be present in a straight line, when traveling on a circle, on uneven ground, or a combination of these. Flexion of the affected limb(s) can further isolate the source of pain and guide additional diagnostics and/or treatment recommendations.
