Diagnostics

Radiology

TEVS offers mobile digital radiography that provides outstanding ease of use and image quality.  Image quality is important when it comes to achieving an accurate diagnosis.  Radiography can be performed at your stable and images can be seen automatically on a viewing computer.  Radiography is imperative for orthopaedic injury diagnosis and for assessment of areas prone to "wear and tear". Problems that are not yet clinically apparent can be identified so that preventative measures can be implemented in a timely manner.  TEVS also offers a full weanling survey and yearling sales radiography service.

Ultrasonography

TEVS has a portable ultrasound that offers premium image quality providing more detailed information for a confident diagnosis.  The ultrasound has three specialised probes to allow the one machine to be used for tendon/ligament scanning, thoracic and abdominal evaluation and reproduction.

Endoscopy

Upper respiratory tract evaluation is important in both performance and racehorses alike.  TEVS can "scope" your horse to assess laryngeal function, look for signs of inflammation / infection or to perform diagnostic procedures such as tracheal washes.  There is an option to use a wireless portable light source where power is not even required.

Laboratory

All laboratory work is referred to a world class facility who services many of the large equine practices in southern Australia.  Bloods can be sent overnight to the lab with results available the following day.
