Tally Oaks Veterinary Equine Services and Staff
TOVS brings professional, affordable, compassionate care to horses in Northern Virginia. We have state of the art equipment which we carry with us at all times. We provide wellness exams, vaccinations, deworming programs and counseling, and nutrition consults. Dr. Woerner personally performs all the dental examinations and dental procedures, with an emphasis on gentle, atraumatic handling and aftercare if needed. We also offer equine wellness plans and discounts for multiple horses to make our comprehensive health care more affordable.
TOVS continues to expand our equine services. We have state of the art digital x-ray imaging equipment and digital ultrasound. Our facility has a round pen and a large ring to facilitate lameness diagnosis. Many times Dr. Woerner will ride the horse to assist in diagnosing the problem.
In addition to our routine procedures such as joint injections, xrays and ultrasound, we also offer acupuncture, osteopathic manipulations and mesotherapy for our equine patients with neck and back pain. We also perform interspinous “back” injections and tendon injections with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) or stem cells. We have recently purchased a Class IV Therapeutic Laser to help with lameness issues and musculoskeletal injuries. We also now use essential oils for a variety of conditions in horses. Rain drop technique using essential oils is especially helpful for the horse that is immunocompromised or has an unexplained lameness or is experiencing decreased performance.
Our proximity to Marion duPont EMC allows us serve as a lay-up facility for horses recovering from medical or surgical procedures.
Endoscopy services are also available for diagnosing horses with upper respiratory issues and for monitoring response to therapy for horses with Recurrent Airway Obstruction (RAO, IAD, COPD) and respiratory infections.
