Lameness is defined as an alteration of the horse’s gait. Stress or injury can take a toll on any horse, even with no obvious conformation defects. When lameness occurs, contact CEVS immediately to prevent further damage. A baseline exam should be done as early as possible to keep problems from becoming big ones.
Lameness evaluations are routine in most pre-purchase examinations. Our veterinarians evaluate an animal so that you may be forewarned about potential problems prior to your purchase of the animal.
