   With modern advances in medicine, the average age of our equine patient gets older every year. At CEH, we want to focus on the needs of our geriatric population. Geriatric patients require special attention and monitoring which may help detect diseases early and prolong the life of your equine friend.

Particular areas of concern in our geriatric patients include dentistry, metabolic diseases (Cushings, Insulin Resistance), nutritional consultations, lameness and quality of life. Each horse is different, but we want to be able to provide the best care for your equine friend to lead a happy, healthy and long life.
