Preventative medicine

Ultrasound Consultation

Dr. Griffin has used ultrasound to diagnose problems in thousands of horses and is more than happy to consult with your veterinarian regarding ultrasound cases. Ultrasound can aid in the diagnosis of many problems and is completely non invasive! Examples of problems which can be detected with ultrasound include tendon and ligament injuries, unexplained bumps and swellings, pneumonia, colic, draining wounds, joint disease, eye injuries and even fractures.

Mary F. Griffin DVM

Mary Griffin DVM

Dr. Mary Griffin knew that she wanted to be a veterinarian from the time that she received a miniature veterinary hospital for her fifth birthday. Mary moved on from bandaging small plastic dogs and wooden rocking horses to graduating from Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

While at Iowa State, she developed a keen interest in lameness and ultrasound. Following vet school, she headed south to Lexington, Ky for a rigorous internship at Hagyard-Davidson-McGee. Dr. Griffin was subsequently accepted into the Cardiology and Ultrasound fellowship at University of Pennsylvania's New Bolton Center where she spent two intense years focusing on diagnostic ultrasound.

Dr. Griffin left the university setting in order to treat patients with whom she could develop long standing involvement in their care. After working locally in private practice for several years, Dr. Griffin established Griffin Equine in January, 2010. When she is not working, Mary can typically be found at the barn riding her horse, Wings.
