Equine Internal Medicine

Salmon Brook offers complete care for routine and unexpected illness. Some more common issues may include:

  • Gastrointestinal disease (chronic colic, weight loss, diarrhea)
  • Endocrinology (Cushing’s disease, equine metabolic syndrome)
  • Respiratory disease (pneumonia, recurrent airway obstruction/heaves)
  • Neurologic disease (EPM, cervical issues)
  • Ophthalmic disease (corneal ulcers, uveitis)

By utilizing a thorough approach to investigating disease, our veterinarians use multiple modalities to reach a diagnosis.  Obtaining a thorough history from the animal’s owner or caregiver and performing a complete physical examination, including a comprehensive blood profile, are some of the initial steps in reaching a conclusive diagnosis.  A discussion of management and medication options is paramount to the treatment of the condition identified.
