Del Oeste Equine Hospital specializes in equine sports medicine, including diagnosis and treatment of lameness in horses. We combine decades of direct experience with the latest technology to uncover the root cause of lameness in your horse. We’re then able to quickly find the most effective path to recovery.
Our digital and computed x-ray and digital ultrasound equipment allows us to diagnose mild injuries before they become major injuries. We also now have an exciting new piece of equipment called the Lameness Locator that helps in diagnosing multiple-leg lameness and measure response to therapy and rehabilitation.
Our advanced treatment options include PRP, IRAP, shockwave, and stem cell therapies, in addition to new techniques and medications for joint injections.
We’ll work with you to clarify your goals, and we’ll provide you with options to safely and cost effectively restore your horse’s health and performance.
Equine Sports medicine is more than fixing what is broken. We believe in prevention — and in treating the whole horse. We can provide you with advice and recommendations for nutrition, conditioning, strength training, and other ways to prevent injuries.
