Has anyone had to MRI the front feet? Did you find the problem? Overall results? Where did you have it done? Cost?

Thanks!!

The closest vet hospital that has an MRI facility. LOL

I have never needed one, but about two hours from where I am located, there is Equine Medical Center of Ocala that has a standing MRI.

  Yes- it is the best way to get a definitive diagnosis on a lameness that has been localized to the feet. Be sure that the lameness has been blocked to the feet though, or else you are wasting money. 

   By far and away an MRI where they place the horse under anesthesia will result in a better image, however these are more expensive. Standing MRI's are starting to be more common but the images arent as crisp and therefore sometimes not as diagnostic.

   Oakridge Equine Hospital in Edmond is where I refer most people- the horses go under general anesthesia for the MRI's there and they have a surgeon on staff who is very experienced in reading MRI's, meaning quick results and diagnosis. Usual cost for two front feet is in the $1600-1800 range.

My horse had a series of MRI's done while he was in the Tildren drug study at Oklahoma State.  I cannot tell  you  a cost though as it was covered in the study.  It did tell us a lot about his feet, and we used that info to monitor changes for a couple of years.

There is a vet in Tioga, TX that does MRI's for approx. $1500, I've spoken with them on the phone and they seem super nice.  Not a standing MRI.

(off topic) - I had it done on my horse lower front after no one could figure what was causing his lameness. Closest MRI was 4 hours away. The cost was $4,000 but it was worth every penny as they found the problem and he had surgery later the next day.
