Evaluating Your Horse's Airway While In Motion
Our commitment to veterinary medicine means that we are always striving to provide newer and more advanced technologies. Vetwerx Equine offers the only mobile dynamic endoscopy unit in Colorado.
Upper airway disease often limits performance in equine athletes. Conditions such as laryngeal hemiplegia, dorsal displacement of the soft palate, and epiglottic entrapment are sometimes diagnosed with upper airway endoscopy but can often be missed with a typical standing endoscopic exam.
The dynamic scope is worn by the horse during exercise, held by a special halter, and equipped with a mobile recording device that monitors activity in the pharyngeal region during work. This is the gold standard for diagnosis of laryngeal dysfunction and can help dictate surgical and/or medical correction.
We offer this diagnostic tool at your farm so there is no need to transport your horses. They can remain at home in a familiar environment where the problem has been observed clinically.
