In the event of an emergency, Peterson Smith is available 24/7 for local equine owners. Our ambulatory veterinarians service horses within a 30 mile radius from our main clinic on airport road. Colic, laceration repairs, and acute laminitis are just a few examples of emergencies that we are available to treat. In some instances, cases are referred to our Internal Medicine or Surgery departments.
Well known for our emergency care, we do offer routine and wellness management for horses of all disciplines and goals. Staffed with 13 ambulatory veterinarians you are sure to find a Peterson Smith vet that fits your horse’s needs. We can help you develop and maintain a program tailored for your farm, including vaccine and parasite control protocols, nutritional consultations, Coggins testing and other laboratory services.
We offer on-site management for mares & stallions, ranging from AI, tracking/manipulating cycles, collection, pregnancy ultrasounds, foaling and neonatal services. We also frequently collaborate with the services provided by the Advanced Fertility Center.
Dentistry is an essential part of your horse’s health care. Horses should be examined annually and, in some cases, more frequently if your equine has dental abnormalities. Adam Cayot & Eric Evans provide quality dental exams and services. Power floats and hand tools are used to maintain proper dentition in your horse’s mouth. Infrequent dental exams can cause your horse to drop their food, weight loss, bad odor, biting problems, head shaking, facial swelling, colic or choke.
