Equine Performance Medicine
The Equine Performance Medicine Service treats horses with performance limiting injuries and physical therapy needs. Our goal is to provide gold standard care to your horse using cutting edge treatment options based on the most recent scientific evidence.
The Performance Medicine Service is designed to be flexible and responsive to our patients needs by offering all aspects of examination, diagnosis, and treatment under one roof in order to efficiently get them back on the road to performing at their best!
Our faculty specialize in lameness diagnosis, advanced imaging, physical therapy, and regenerative medicine. Services range from treating simple conditions like hoof abscesses and sole bruises to evaluating complex or subtle lameness problems, with the ability to design a customized rehabilitation plan that meets the needs of each client and their horse.
Those cases requiring advanced imaging, diagnostic testing, or surgery have fast access to the specialty services and board-certified clinicians of the KSU VHC. Barn visits are available for certain instances.
To schedule an appointment with our service please call the large animal desk at 785-532-5700.
