Large Animal Service
We are equipped to see equine patients through both our ambulatory and haul-in services. This flexibility allows us to individualize the treatment that your horse receives.
To schedule a farm call with an ambulatory veterinarian, please call the office with a general time frame in mind. In order to minimize travel time and fuel costs, we attempt to schedule appointments together in general geographic regions.
We ask that you attempt to be as flexible as possible on the day of your farm call and phone us the morning of your scheduled appointment to get an approximate time of the doctor’s arrival. Of course, emergencies always take precedence over routine procedures and this could cause some variation.
Additionally, please make the receptionist aware of all of the procedures that you will require during your farm call. This will allow us to see clients in a timely fashion, to be prepared upon arrival, and to meet with clients at their scheduled time.
There are considerable advantages to hauling your horse to our practice for their appointment. Results from blood work and radiographs are often available immediately, specialized equipment is readily at hand, mobile service charges are not applied, and additional staff is available to assist when needed. Appointments are typically scheduled first thing in the morning, lunch or after 6pm.
