Lameness Examinations

When your large animals experience moments of discomfort or reduced performance, our lameness exams are designed to identify underlying issues and implement tailored solutions.

Comprehensive lameness evaluations allow us to develop specific treatment plans that address the root cause and assist in the overall rehabilitation of your animals.

Equine Performance Medicine

At Star City Animal Hospital, we understand the unique needs of equine athletes and the importance of maintaining their optimal performance. We offer a specialized area of care known as equine performance medicine. This includes advanced diagnostic tools such as Equine MRI, which is highly effective in detecting soft tissue injuries and subtle bone lesions that may not be visible through traditional X-rays or ultrasounds. Equine MRI provides detailed imaging, leading to more accurate diagnoses and targeted treatment plans. By utilizing equine performance medicine, we can optimize your horse’s performance, assist in injury management, and help them reach their full potential.

Equine Hospitalization and Equine Boarding

In times of crisis or when a complex illness demands urgent attention, we are able to provide equine hospitalization services to ensure critical care and timely intervention are being administered. Additionally, we offer short-term boarding options, providing a safe and comfortable environment for your horse during times of need. Whether it’s a medical emergency or a situation that requires specialized care, our equine experts are committed to delivering compassionate and professional services.

Our team prioritizes individualized care, and to ensure we can provide the attention your large animals deserve, we kindly request that clients schedule their appointments in advance. However, we understand that emergencies can happen, and we are here to assist you. If your animal requires urgent care outside our regular business hours, our after-hours urgent care line, accessible through our clinic phone, ensures that your animals can receive attention when you need it the most.
