Equine Lameness

Lameness can occur at almost any time with or without visible signs. Obscure lameness may be mild, yet internal structures can be damaged without examination and diagnosis of the underlying problems. With the availability of digital x-ray and diagnostic ultrasound, many of these issues can be detected and treated with a better prognosis of recover time.

The diagnostic ultrasound can visualize tendon and ligament damage as well as fluid accumulations in tendon sheaths and joints.

Digital x-ray allows us to see images via computer views within minutes and speed up the diagnostic process. This also allows us to share the images with the owner so that they may better understand the situation.

  • "Awesome vet. Willing to get up in the middle of the night to stitch up my daughter's old Qt horse. Very reasonable, very personable. I would recommend him every time."
  • "Wouldn't go anywhere else. All of the staff at Wildflower are awesome and down to earth. Dr G is a super neat guy and I highly recommend this place for anyone with large and small animals."
  • "Amazing group of people! They've came through for my animals every time I call. Dr. Gillette saved my dogs life and for that, I am forever great full for! All the vets and staff are amazing and generally love healing all creatures. Thank you so much, Boots is only 2 days post-op and back to her normal self. Sincerely, Regan Justice."
  • "Dr. G. and his staff are outstanding! My daughter and I went to his pet clinic where he taught first aide techniques for horses - it came in handy when our dog got hit by a car. I am glad I went to that clinic because it helped a lot."
