His "state of the art" mobile ultrasound allows him to do ultrasounds just about anywhere it is safe. From pre-breeding to to foal care, he does it all.
Pre-purchase exams are very thorough physical exams in-conjunction with a soundness evaluation and flexions. With the addition of our Lameness Locator, Dr Bridges has been able to minimize the subjectivity in soundness evaluation and provide prospective buyers with printouts on any lameness detected.

Our advanced, mobile ultrasound allows us to assist patients in the field without the hassles of cords, stands, extended time, and travel. From tendons to reproduction...our ultrasound can facilitate it all, allowing Dr. Bridges to be effective in the field with immediate and clear images.
We are very fortunate to carry an excellent mobile digital xray unit on our truck, which allows us to have instant high quality digital xrays in treating patients, educating clients, and informing farriers.
Shockwave therapy has become a staple in a majority of lameness practices across the US and Europe – because it works. Shockwaves trigger the body’s biologic repair
mechanism by simulating trauma without causing trauma. Essentially, shockwaves work by activating the natural healing response and can be applied safely and easily without the risk of any side effects. Our practice is blessed to have the newest and most effective shockwave machine on the market.
With the addition of the cryogun, our practice has been able to treat and help extend the lives of our patients thru the use of cryosurgery.
