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 able to obtain most laboratory results within 24 hours. Emergency care for our regular clients is provided on a 24 hour basis.

Pre-purchase examinations- An extensive physical examination, lameness evaluation and neurologic examination is offered by us prior to purchasing a horse. The information gathered is used by the prospective buyer and/or agent to determine whether the horse will be servicable for it's intended use. The exam may include laboratory testing and digital radiographs.

Health Certificates - Please call in advance to set up an appointment for obtaining a health certificate for your animal(s) when traveling outside of Washington state.

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.

Dental care - We offer manual and power float options for maintaining proper dental care for your horse. If you have any questions regarding floating your horses' teeth, please contact the clinic for more information.

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. Radiographs, 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, biopsy and laceration repair. More complicated procedures may be referred to a specialist.

Specialized procedures:

Ultrasonography- uses sound waves to evaluate soft tissues like tendons and ligaments, reproductive organs, lumps, and tumors. It is painless and non-invasive.

Radiography- uses x-rays to visualize bone for abnormalities including arthritic changes, fractures, ocd, bone cysts and bone infection.

Allergy testing - We offer blood testing as a method to diagnose and treat allergies in your horse.
