Troytown is equipped with the latest technology to investigate complex lameness problems. Lameness examinations are time consuming and it may take several days to fully examine a lame horse and to come to a conclusion with the aid of diagnostic analgesia and imaging processes. The latest technologies are employed including ultrasonography, scintigraphy and digital radiography. We are experienced at the art of diagnosis and treatment with the aid of keyhole surgery in some cases. We ask that horses referred for lameness evaluation not receive any analgesia at least 48hours prior to admission to the hospital. They must not be shod in the days immediately prior to admission.
Complex medications of deep structures, such as the saco-iliac joint, stifle, neck and back, can now be undertaken. We are equipped with shockwave and stem cell for tendon treatments. We are continuously pushing the barriers of diagnosis and treatment for better results. We also work closely with master farrier John Dooley for our podietry work. John is a registered farrier and can be contacted using the following information: Phone: (045)483735, Mobile: (086)2540690
