Here at Vet Services Wairarapa, we take equine dentistry seriously. We have a full range of equipment, including mouth gags for horses and ponies, incisors gags for different sized mouths, a full range of hand floats and a power float for necessary cases.
We have the correct ultrasound probe needed to be able to perform ultrasound examinations of mares, both to manage their cycles prior to insemination and also to ascertain pregnancy afterward. We can also perform ultrasound examinations to assess damage to tendons, ligaments and joints.
At Vet Services Wairarapa, we have a mobile digital x-ray machine. This means that we can take high quality radiographs and get images on the laptop within seconds. This helps us to quickly determine pathology and helps us to indicate further treatment needed.
