Lameness Evaluation

Pain or restricted movement are the most common causes of gait abnormalities, or lameness, in our large animal species.

The Cummings School's Hospital for Large Animals provides a comprehensive range of clinical lameness services that can rapidly and effectively address the orthopedic needs of our patients. The faculty and staff have experience with clinical assessments in a broad range of species, including horses and other large animals.

Lameness evaluations take place within the Hospital for Large Animals on the Cummings School campus. An array of sophisticated equipment and services includes:

All of these and more support the highly skilled board certified faculty clinicians to diagnose and treat your horse. In addition, our digital equipment allows us to easily share data—including X-rays and other images—with you and your primary veterinarian.
