Re: [RC] Flouroscopic Examination - Ed and Wendy Hauser

My vet would go that route.  I normally bring my horses into the clinic.
The work up goes like this:

1. Take history.  When how long symptoms etc.
2. Trot the horse straight and in circles.
3. Do a flexion test.
4. think and discuss.
5. Do nerve blocks.  This allows localization of area of pain.
6. Do ultrasound if soft tissue is suspected
7. Do X-rays as indicated by the nerve blocks.
8. Decide on course of treatment.

Even when a partial diagnosis is available from another vet (say at a ride)
they want to follow the protocaul.  This systematic approach makes sure
nothing is missed.
