Outpatient appointments are made for those horses that require a specific examination, for investigations such as x-rays or ultrasonography, or for a treatment such as shock wave treatment. Horses that return to the clinic for re-examination will usually be admitted as out patients. Depending on the type of examination or treatment, the visit may last approximately one to two hours. If your horse comes in as a day patient for particular imaging, such as MRI, then your horse will need to be here for a full day. If your horse is sedated for any examination or treatment, they will be stabled and monitored until the sedation has worn off and your horse is fit and able to travel home safely. Out-patient appointments can be made on most days of the week.
