“Kissing Spines is a condition where the dorsal spinous processes are too close together,” Dr. Cliff Honnas, equine veterinarian, surgeon and founder of the widely respected Texas Equine Hospital in Bryan, Texas.
explains simply. “These are the bones that make up the backbone of the horse directly underneath the saddle.”
While there are numerous conditions impacting the equine back, the diagnosis of Kissing Spines has increased fairly dramatically in recent years thanks to improved diagnostic techniques coupled with a greater focus on veterinary education.
Prisma’s imaging technology will be a huge help in diagnosing horses that may have Kissing Spines and monitoring their condition throughout its management.
