comprehensive and compassionate veterinary care, being a valuable educational resource for referring veterinarians, future veterinarians and
clients, and contributing to the advancement of new knowledge through innovative scholarship and clinical discovery. Our caseload of more
than 2,500 equids annually consists of horses of all breeds, ages and disciplines, and involves a diverse mix of surgical and medical cases
including advanced specialty care, neonatal intensive care, and emergency and critical care. We are extremely fortunate to serve
