My Veterinarians Pharmarcy

After a diagnosis of a lameness problem has been made, we can design a rehabilitation program for your horse after the initial treatment. Depending on the specific kind of injury or lameness, we will monitor the stages of rehabilitation with rechecks and evaluations [with your veterinarian], making adaptations in the program based on the results. Rehabilitation services and lay-up board is available on-site, at High Knoll Equestrian Center. We can teach the rider, owner and trainer how to perform certain techniques (bandaging, massage, passive movements) and lunging or under saddle exercises that can contribute towards the horse improving his condition, if not regaining full athletic capacity. We can also provide clients with information on issues that affect a horse's performance, such as tack fit, arena footing, shoeing, etc.

Game Ready™ Equine

is the secret weapon of top riders and veterinarians for preventing injury in their horses and speeding recovery from a multitude of ailments. The Game Ready System is used for post-workout therapy,chronic lameness, acute lameness, cellulitis, tendonitis, pre- and post-operative care, bowed tendons, stocked-up legs, wind puffs and more. Delivering dry cold and active compression, Game Ready Equine utilizes the same physical therapy and athletic training principles relied on by human athletes, calling for the use of ”RICE” (Rest-Ice-Compression-Elevation).
