At Morphettville Equine Clinic, we regularly examine horses for poor performance, lameness, respiratory noise and undiagnosed performance-limiting complaints in horses of all breeds and occupations.
The most common cause of poor performance is lameness or pain related to the musculoskeletal system. Other causes of poor performance include respiratory disease and rarely cardiovascular or neurologic disease.
Poor performance 'work-ups' involve close examination of the above systems and further diagnostics depending on the findings. Please see the lameness and internal medicine sections on this website for further information.
