If only they could talk! Unfortunately they can only ‘tell’ us they are in pain through their behaviour or inhibited movement; and even then we often only see a symptom and not the actual cause of the problem therefore making it very difficult to treat a problem successfully.
The cause of some health problems need to be identified through the knowledge of an appropriate health care specialist before the healing process is able to begin. Recognising owners lead busy lives which often make it difficult to arrange appointments with specialists at times that suit, we facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of health concerns or problems through the co-ordinated expertise of renowned Canterbury equine health professionals:
Given our variable North Canterbury weather, these specialists enjoy working at our completely weather-proof facilities which in turn often assists us in securing the earliest available appointments!
Should ‘box-rest’ be prescribed, or if regular drug-administering or bandage/dressing changes become necessary, we have the facilities and ability to ensure this crucial period of recovery is managed correctly and in complete alliance with the professionals involved.
Once the issue has been diagnosed and treatment agreed, recuperation can be aided and accelerated through regular Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field (PEMF) therapy treatments and a controlled return-to-work exercise programme.
