Ultrasound is used for the diagnosis of musculoskeletal conditions including joint, tendon, muscle and ligament injuries and it is effective for monitoring the healing process in these cases. In addition to this we also use ultrasound for evaluation of horses with abdominal pain (colic), respiratory disease and for cardiology examinations. Ultrasound is also routinely used to monitor broodmare reproductive cycles, for equine pregnancy detection (including twinning), and late pregnancy.

We have a high quality hospital based machine which is excellent for scanning more difficult areas such as the chest, heart and abdomen. We also have a portable ultrasound machine which is predominantly used for reproductive examinations.
