Radiology & Ultrasound
Digital radiographs allow the doctor to examine bones for fractures and arthritis. We have the latest technology which allows us to take an x-ray every 7 seconds. We are able to radiograph your horse's teeth for dental care. We work with many farriers to combat lameness and foot ailments. AVC is also the only clinic in Northeast Michigan to radiograph the spine for kissing spine and also treating it! The ultrasound allows doctors to evaluate the integrity of ligaments, tendons, and joints of the legs.
At the Alpena Veterinary Clinic, we have modern equipment that allows us to evaluate your horse’s internal organs and immune system. This allows us to diagnose problems early and start treatment quickly.
