Evaluation and assessment

A full neurological exam is performed in conjunction with a lameness exam.

Sometimes neurological horses can present with gait abnormalities, and some gait abnormalities can make a horse look neurological. It is important to tease out those differences. 

A comprehensive neurological examination enables us to identify those sometimes subtle differences that point towards the horse’s neck as being the issue.
