Parasite Control

In 2009, we began to offer a Clinical Parasite Control Program. This program addresses the problem of parasite drug resistance.  During 2010 and 2011, only 10% of horses tested were categorized as High or Moderate shedders.  That means that 90% of the horses tested were maintained on twice a year deworming.

Lameness Locator®

The Lameness Locator® is a wireless computer-assisted motion analysis system used to objectively detect and evaluate lameness patterns in the horse. The resulting Lameness Locator® analysis report can be used to help determine whether a lameness exists, which limb or limbs are involved, the severity of the lameness, and the phase of stride (impact, mid-stance, or push off) that the lameness is most severe.
