During the Performance Horse Exam & Treatment, Dr. Warren thoroughly examines each horse using both chiropractic and acupuncture techniques to determine what issues are present. This information is used to formulate a treatment plan that may include therapies such as chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture treatments, laser therapy, massage, myofascial release, physical rehabilitation methods, herbal formulations, and special exercises to promote healing and reduce pain. Nutritional status is discussed and recommendations may be made on feed supplements needed. This process requires between 1 and 2 hours to complete so please allow plenty of time for each horse.

In some cases, more conventional diagnostic approaches may be appropriate such as thermography, X-Rays, and ultrasound examination. Dr. Warren is able to provide these services and interpret results on site.

Scheduling

Due to Dr. Warren's travel schedule, it is best to arrange an appointment prior to a problem surfacing. As in any medical issue, preventive maintenance is more medically and financially manageable than an acute dental situation. Regular dental care prevents more serious veterinary diseases as well, along with the resulting pain and behavioral problems.

At times, distance may be a challenge for scheduling an immediate appointment. However, Dr. Warren is able to arrange a visit to your horse barn as he acquires a number of patients from your area or travels through your general vicinity.

Preventive horse dental care and maintenance visits can be scheduled well in advance for convenience in planning, effective budgeting, and coordination of routine veterinary services.
