    Question Need Good Lameness Vet S. of Raleigh, NC

    Anyone have recommendations on a decent lameness vet that travels the southern side of Raleigh, NC?
    I'll need contact info to go with names please. I'm new to the area.

    Dr. Bob Meyer out of Neuse River is hands down my favorite in the area. His approach is methodical and has really done a nice job with my own personal horses and the other horses in our barn. 919-365-9001

    Dr. Jack Shuler is also very good, but has little bedside manner for the humans. He is also a practicing chiro/acupuncturist. As close as you are to the vet school I would consider taking your horse to Dr. Mansmann if hoof/foot related or Dr. Gerard if soft tissue related. You'll end up not spending any more money and have better resources at hand. If it's not doable then Dr. Meyers or Dr. Shuler are both good.

    Dr. Richard A. Mansmann, VMD, PhD. He's an excellent lameness specialist and would be my first choice if I still lived in that area. The number I have for him is 919.513.0035 - but I am not sure if that is outdated. It's been a while since I lived in that area.

    Good luck!

    Will third the Mansmann recommendation. I've used him recently see him work a lot. His email is ramansma@ncsu.edu, and he's very good about answering questions over email.

    Dr. Redding is also at the vet school and is quite the lameness guru.

    For a traveling vet, I would use Fernando Cardenas. He is south of Raleigh (Apex area) and has been great for lameness.

    Thank you for all the suggestions!
    Luckily i'm not dealing with a life or death. He's sound under saddle but not using his body right (so technically unsound but not showing normal lameness symptoms?). I flexed him and both hinds are positive. I'm no vet so I can't tell where, and need the full picture to figure out what to do about it. He's 16 so it's not a huge surprise.

    If anyone wants to chime in about who you think would be suit me. I like alot of interaction from the vet. I like to learn, have everything explained to me in detail, and a vet that doesn't mind questions. I also would love it if they incorporated acupuncture as it has really helped my horse in the past.

    I have spoken with Dr. Bob Meyer on the phone and have made an appointment for next Friday.
    Cross your fingers this is something minor!
