Upper Airway Endoscopy/BAL
Did you know?
Horses can have asthma-like respiratory diseases or structural abnormalities within their lungs that prevent them from reaching peak performance. When severe, these changes can even hinder normal breathing while your horse is at rest. North Bridge Equine has the capability to perform upper airway endoscopy and bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) to sample the fluid in the lungs as well as a complete respiratory examination at the farm.

"Vincent and I have been working with North Bridge Equine Associates since 2013. Dr. Fred Nostrant and his team have always been extremely professional, understanding, and compassionate to the individual needs of our horses and clients. Fred invests in making the client feel comfortable and always takes the time to explain his methodology and approach.
We have a rigorous schedule at LAEM and Fred makes the time for us either in his routine weekly visits or on call when we need him. When we travel for our business, although Fred cannot travel with us to perform a vetting, he will review X-rays and vet reports from the attending veterinarian and give us his honest opinion.
When our new prospects arrive at our stable we have Fred look at them first so we can make a plan for their continued soundness and improvement in the sport. Fred’s holistic approach takes into consideration all aspects of feeding, fitness, training regimens, articulation, as well as personalities of the horses. He is dedicated first and foremost to the long-term health and happiness of the horses in his care.
This long term, full range planning is one of the many things we appreciate about NBEA’s care; their system has afforded us continued success and longevity in the careers of our horses.
We truly enjoy the working relationship we have with Fred and the team at NBEA!"
