Bio Find

Yes, but it requires training. Equestricare can organise training and purchase of an Equine Ultrasound for $1100 inc GST.

Please note. The reflection of ultrasonic waves from the bone may produce a localised concentration of heat, leading to periosteal pain. If this occurs, please contact your therapist immediately.
