Sydney Equine Practice uses a Dynamic Respiratory Endoscope (DRE) to assist our veterinarians to accurately diagnose and treat upper respiratory disorders in horses exercising under normal environmental conditions at the racecourse or your property.
Dynamic obstructions of the upper airway often only occur during high-speed and/or intense exercise meaning resting upper airway respiratory endoscopes often under diagnose or fail to diagnose conditions. DRE is suited to horses with abnormal noise production during exercise, exercise intolerance, and poor performance.
The examination is recorded so the video can be viewed at speed and in slow motion, as well as still images taken being taken. A written report and CD/DVD with all videos and photos of the DRE examination will be provided.
