There is always a doctor on call and your emergency call should be returned within 10 minutes. However, the emergency doctor is not always at the hospital or may be unavailable (if in emergency surgery).
We work closely with local veterinarians in the area to make sure your animal gets the best care possible before, during and after hospitalization. We also have patient support with our own on-site laboratory for blood and fluid analysis.
* If you have an emergency contact your veterinarian immediately. He or she can determine if your horse needs an immediate referral to the hospital. It is very important that our on-call doctor is contacted before a horse is shipped to the hospital.
In the event of an emergency, we always have an on-call veterinarian available to help you, who will determine if your horse needs immediate referral to our hospital. Some emergencies need to be stabilized at the farm prior to transporting the horse to the hospital, so we ask that you please call our emergency number PRIOR to transporting your horse: 352-237-6151. If we do not answer, please press 1.
