Our newest addition here at Kessen Veterinary Clinic is an upgraded Gastroscopy Unit. Now we have even better equipment in order to evaluate your horse’s stomach for ulcers! More common than people believe, Gastric Ulcers have been shown to affect weight gain, poor attitude, poor hair coat, changes in eating, decreased performance and more.

These therapies are constantly advancing to help decrease healing time in equine athletes & we are excited to be at the forefront of these new technologies.
In upgrading our x-ray system – we are now able to send your radiographs whenever you need them via email. All of our radiographs are stored in our virtual cloud so your radiographs will never be lost.
Give us a call to surgically sterilize your horse. We have capabilities to complete this procedure here at the clinic or at your farm.
Each patient that is castrated receives antibiotics, tetanus vaccine, and pain medication at the time of the procedure.
We also have capabilities here to perform Cryptorchid castrations. A procedure where at least one testicle is undescended. This is a procedure that must be performed in our surgical suite as usually we need to go into the abdomen to retrieve the descended testicle.
