Equine Services



At this time we are focusing on preventive care, nutrition, wound healing, and opthalmolgy.  Additional services will be added as demand indicates.

Wellness care- "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" That saying holds true for horses also. As part of our routine care we provide vaccinations, deworming, Coggins testing, and dental care. At the time of service we can discuss any issues you may have with your horse including nutritional needs, training programs, geriatric care, etc..

Time of need care- We offer exams for illness and injuries should they arise.

Geriatric care- Aged horses can have sub-clinical health care issues that can be identified and treated before they become a problem. If your horse is over 15 years of age we recommend a complete physical examination and blood testing to establish baseline values.

Lameness examination- Evaluate the locomotion of your horse. We use a variety of techniques to identify the source(s) of lameness including physical examination and palpation, flexion tests, and joint and nerve blocks. Digital radiography, ultrasound, and laboratory tests help us to further evaluate the source of your horse's lameness.

Foal exams - umbilical treatment, enema, Ab level check, and screening for NI.

Surgery- Standing or recumbent surgery of the horse is performed for castration, biopsy and laceration repair. More complicated procedures may be referred to a specialist.

Specialized procedures:

Tonometry- is a procedure that measures the intraocular pressure of the eyeball and is useful in detecting glaucoma and uveitis.
