The clinic has kept pace with evolving medical technology, which often presents unexpected challenges.

“A lot of equine doctors, for example, use digital X-ray, and we do, too,” Alexandra said. “With that technology, though, you see a lot more detail.”

The challenge becomes how to evaluate the new detail. “All of a sudden we can see something we couldn’t see before,” Alexandra said. “Does it matter? Is it clinically significant?”

The clinic provides everything from laser surgery to nutrition counseling to 24-hour emergency care. The diagnostic center offers endoscopy and gastroscopy and digital radiography, to mention a few of its tools. Acupuncture and therapies such as shockwave and stem cell also are available.
