Respiratory Noise Evaluation

An abnormal respiratory noise is often an indicator of problems that can be performance inhibiting to equine athletes and pleasure horses alike. We are able to investigate respiratory noises and if needed offer surgical solutions. Airway endoscopic examinations (scoping) are commonly performed in the evaluation of abnormal noises as well as for checking the lungs in cases of poor performance.

We have access to the latest technology in the form of ‘over the ground’ or ‘dynamic’ upper airway endoscopy via a visiting clinician. This system used a portable endoscopic system with a recording device attached to the horse. A video of the upper airway at work is produced for analysis which more accurately shows issues as they happen.
