Radiography & Ultrasonography
We have a brand new portable x-ray machine that we can use on farm , or alternatively you can bring your horse into the clinic.
We can use x-rays to look at a variety of issues, including (but not limited to) lameness, head and teeth concerns and other bone-related presenting issues.
What we need:
- A clean horse (mud and debris can show up on x-rays and interfere with the interpretation)
- Shoes off ( its ideal to have the shoes off and clean feet when taking foot X-rays)
- An experienced handler over the age of 18
- Good weather, or a dry covered area ( water can damage the equipment)
We have a state of the art ultrasonography machine that we can use for specific cases.
This is used at the clinic, so contact us today to discuss your needs and if ultrasonography is a good option for your horse.

Local farmers, associated rural communities and Te Puke town people have supported Te Puke Vet Centre for over 50 years. During those years scores of receptionists, nurses and vets have lived and enjoyed the benefits of this great town and area. It is very important for Te Puke Vets that we are strongly integrated with the local community and as part of that we are proud to support many local schools, sports clubs, service organisations and community events.
