Treatment and Rehabilitation
With a veterinarian and two trainers on site, we also are able to start horses back to work carefully so that they do not re-injure themselves. Dr. Kim Braeutigam keeps a close eye on the progress of each horse in the rehabilitation program, ensuring that the work proceeds with few setbacks. We are proud that we have brought back many horses (including show hunters, jumpers, and Standardbreds, among others) that were considered “useless” or unsaleable and turned them into winning horses. This service is highly individualized and tailored to the specific needs of each horse, the cost is based on the horse’s initial condition and the services needed, as well as the length of time services are required.
Treatment and rehabilitation services offered:
- Physical therapy and injury rehabilitation
- Joint injections
- Shock wave therapy
- Stem cell therapy
- Tildren therapy
Four Winds Farrier Services include corrective shoeing and trimming for laminitis, white line hoof-wall resections, and other complicated foot conditions, provided by Richard Becker, past president of the Michigan Farrier Association. He is a current member of the U.S. Blacksmith Team. Dick works well with local blacksmiths for consultation and follow-up care.
Dr. Braeutigam can also arrange chiropractic services by a licensed professional if the need arises.
