Dr. Garfinkel's Horse Services
Horse Preventative Care
Dr. Garfinkel is committed to preventing disease and common equine health problems by offering vaccination and deworming programs, as well as dental care to our clients.
Dr. Christi Garfinkel has designed an Equine Wellness Package to provide our clients with the peace of mind that comes with knowing that their horse(s) are receiving the best preventative health care on a regular and timely basis.
Advanced Horse Dental Care
Dental care difficulties tend to be greatest avoided through dental care exams two times annually. Teeth associated with horses constantly develop through the animal’s existence. Nevertheless, certain dental problems, such as malocclusion (upper and lower teeth do not meet), broken teeth and abnormal wear can make it difficult to estimate horse’s age.
We offer field radiology (x-ray) both digital and film, and ultrasound analysis services. Additionally we provide a complete selection of lab screening, such as total bloodstream function, endocrine information, biopsys as well as histopathology. A number of other test will also be obtainable. Call for details.
Equine Joint Injection
At Equine Veterinary Services joint injections are a common procedure which requires injecting medicine directly into the joint to battle such troubles as synovitis, degenerative joint disease, and arthritis. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is used alone and in combination with a corticosteroid dependent on the problem being addressed and which joint is being treated. A sterile preparation of the joint is executed before this procedure.
I am thrilled to provide services for all your equine reproductive requirements, including pre-breeding consultations, artificial insemination, reproductive ultrasonography and palpation, pregnancy exams, semen collection and shipment, as well as neo-natal care
