Equine Performance & Lameness
Integrated Performance & Lameness Exams
There are many factors that keep a horse performing at its best. Our Integrated Performance Exam includes a full lameness exam, chiropractic and acupuncture treatments, and consults in podiatry, dentistry, and nutrition. Our veterinarians evaluate every aspect of the horse to determine how we can help to improve performance, establish soundness, or treat an injury.
We offer the latest in diagnostic imaging techniques, listed below. These services are available in the clinic or at your farm. BLVC veterinarians work closely with the Michigan State University Veterinary Medical Center if further diagnostics such as MRI or nuclear scintigraphy (bone scan) are required.
As a progressive practice, we always strive to offer the most beneficial, least invasive, and most cost-effective solutions for therapeutic options.

The foot is the foundation of the horse. As such, hoof imbalances often lead to lameness or performance problems unless corrected early. A thorough foot evaluation is an essential part of any performance exam. BLVC veterinarians utilize digital radiographs of the foot, movement evaluation, and close consultation with your farrier to develop a therapeutic plan. Type your paragraph here.
Providing well-balanced nutrition is a vital component of keeping any horse healthy and performing at its best. Whether you have a weekend warrior trail horse or an three-day event horse, our veterinarians can help you evaluate and monitor your horse’s weight, body condition score, and other health factors that may influence your horse’s nutritional needs. From there, we can design a nutrition plan that is right for you and your horse. In addition, we offer consultation/referral with an equine nutritionist.
