The investigation and evaluation of poor performance in the equine athlete relies upon the identification and the significance of clinical problems such as disease, injury, conformation, training, and genetics. At Randwick Equine Centre our veterinary consultants have decades of clinical experience and access to state of the art diagnostic tools and facilities to determine the underlying poor performance factor in your horse today.
A Poor Performance examination can include –
A physical examination of the horse including routine bloodwork.
Examination of the cardiovascular system before, during, and after exercise including an ECG
Endoscopic examination of the upper airways at rest
Dynamic endoscopic examination (endoscopic exam during exercise)
Tracheal aspiration and bronchoalveolar lavage (used to evaluate pathogens and cells within the respiratory tract).
