Equine Services

Our veterinary team are not only experts at taking care of small animals, but bigger animals too! We love our equine patients and are happy to serve their veterinary needs. We offer a wide range of services specifically for horses, including diagnosis, treatment, veterinary exams, equine laser therapy and dentistry. We use top-of-the line tools to deliver the best possible care to your horse. We can also come to you via our mobile clinic. Please contact us if you would like to book an appointment for your horse at 403.335.3519.

What is equine laser therapy?

Laser therapy is a pain-relieving treatment that reduces inflammation and speeds up the healing process. If your horse has recently had surgery, is experiencing arthritis or has periodontal (gum) disease, laser therapy will help jump start their cell’s healing process. It is also a great procedure for relieving discomfort from wounds, sprains and strains. We use a laser beam to target specific areas of your pet’s body. For your horse, it feels like a patch of warmth is covering the treatment area. The process usually takes about 15 minutes, depending on the size of the targeted area.

How do you cater to equine dental health?

Our team is dedicated to providing high-quality dental care, including utilizing the best products on the market. We are proud to use the Canadian-made PowerFloat tool to support your horse’s dental needs. The PowerFloat is well-known in the equine community for helping maintain your horse’s teeth via floating (removal of the sharp points of some teeth), which is essential for their ability to eat.

Are there special products you carry for my equine friend?

Yes, our clinic carries a large inventory of products specifically for your horse. We are dedicated to providing holistic care, including access to products that help maintain their health. We also try to provide competitive pricing, so you’re receiving your money’s worth. If you are looking for something unique, feel free to contact us or mention it at your next visit to the clinic. We are happy to order specialty products! Some of the products we keep stocked in-house are:

  • Vaccines and antibiotics
  • Deworming products
  • Wound care products
  • Vitamins and supplements

    Dear Clients,

    With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.

    1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!

    2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE

  • Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
  • Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
  • Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
