All too often, horses require emergency care. Peterson Smith offers 24/7 emergency care to local horse owners. Our radius is 30 miles from our main clinic located off airport road in Ocala. Our ambulatory veterinarians are able to help most cases on site, but if a situation becomes to severe they will send them into our clinic. The most frequent emergency our ambulatory clinicians are called to is colic, or abdominal pain. We also manage many traumatic injuries including lacerations and wounds, dystocia (difficult foaling), acute laminitis, and other sudden illnesses in adults and foals. In the event that additional care is needed, we can arrange referral to our Internal Medicine or Surgery departments.
On-site management of mares & stallions, ranging from AI, tracking/manipulating cycles, collection, pregnancy ultrasounds, foaling and neonatal services. We also frequently collaborate with/complement services provided by the Advanced Fertility Center.
