We use ultrasound to diagnose pregnancy, fetal viability, fetal sexing, twins, ovarian structures, uterine abnormalities, and other reproductive conditions in cattle. Ultrasound is also useful for evaluating internal organs such as the liver, kidneys, spleen, bladder, and heart.
Lameness Exams/Foot Trims
We perform lameness exams to identify the cause and severity of lameness in cattle. We examine the feet, legs, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves of the affected animal. We also provide foot trims to prevent or treat hoof problems such as overgrowth, cracks, ulcers, abscesses, and infections.
