Equine Services

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 care for your horse in case of medical colic, sickness, lameness, injury, metabolic problems, or chronic illness. We are equipped to provide intravenous fluids and most laboratory results are obtained within 24 hours.

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. Radiography, ultrasound, and laboratory tests help us to further evaluate the source of your horse's lameness.

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

Dentistry is an important procedure for your horses health.  Teeth problems can cause problems with weight loss, head-tossing while riding because of pain from the bit, and potentially tooth abscesses.  We have a Power Float which enables us to do quick, thorough teeth floating fixing problems such as sharp points, a wave mouth and some malocclusion.  A dentistry is done under sedation.
