Equine Performance Clinic

The Equine Performance Clinic at the Cornell University Hospital provides clinical service to equine athletes to optimize performance. Horses from throughout the northeastern United States are referred to our facility for evaluation and diagnosis of performance limiting disorders.

We offer the full complement of state-of-the-art services and access to some of the world's leading veterinary scientists and clinicians, including cardiologists, oncologists, radiologists, and neurologists.

We offer advanced diagnostic procedures including MRI, ultrasound, endoscopy and a high-speed treadmill for cardiac testing. And we perform minimally-invasive and traditional procedures to treat cardiac problems, diseases of the larynx, orthopedic conditions and neurological issues. Our hospital provides access to a broad range of specialists of all types to ensure our patients receive the most comprehensive care possible. And our experienced staff provides nursing care 24 hours a day.
