X-Rays and Lameness

Lameness is one of the most crucial and most common problems seen in equine athletes today. Through radiography, we are typically able to pin-point and diagnose the issue at hand, allowing for a more accurate treatment. Dr. Dixon Appel uses a portable, digital x-ray machine so radiographs can be taken at your facility or at our clinic.


Through the use of radiographs, we are also able to detect abnormalities of the limbs, which can help prevent issues in the future.


If the lameness problem in your horse cannot be detected through an x-ray, our in-house ultrasound machine and other equipment will. 


Dr. Dixon Appel and the team at Pheasant Ridge Equine are dedicated to finding the best treatment for your horses' lameness issue.


Please call our office today or send an email to: to set up an appointment.
