Artificial insemination

We are proud to offer artificial insemination, which can save you time and money. You won’t have to transport your mare to the stallion. Instead, the sperm can be frozen and mailed to you so that we can place it in your mare’s cervix. We are also proud to do embryo transfers so that your mare can still continue to show and train while producing offspring.

Ultrasound

It is our goal to offer our patients the very best veterinary care we can. We are proud of our state-of-the-art equipment, which allows us to diagnose and treat your horses quickly and efficiently.

Ultrasounding is a quick and painless procedure. It uses sound waves to allow us to see inside your horses, without using the harmful radiation produced when we take x-rays.

We are pleased to be able to offer ultrasounds, along with all of our other diagnostic tools, to help your sick horses start to feel better soon. The quicker we can find the problem, the sooner your horses will be back to their normal selves.

X-rays

Our hospital is dedicated to staying up to date with the newest advances in veterinary medicine. We strive to diagnose and treat your horse the easiest way possible.

For this reason, we use digital radiology, which is the best way to get quality x-rays quickly and efficiently. Your horse’s digital images are ready almost instantly for us to view. Also, instead of taking film after film to adjust the settings, we can simply adjust the contrast on the computer. This means that we can take fewer films and not expose your horse to as much radiation.

Digital x-rays are great for diagnosing lameness in horses. We can quickly and efficiently diagnose your horse, whether he or she is suffering from laminitis, a broken bone, or anything else.

Lameness Exams

If your horse is lame for any reason, our entire team is dedicated to finding out the reason and helping your horse get back to normal.

With a lameness examination, we first study the legs for swelling, abnormal hoof wear, or anything else out of the ordinary. We palpate all of the joints, tendons, and ligaments to try to feel for anything abnormal that may be making your horse lame.

After the examination, we will watch your horse walk and jog (if possible). We use a hoof tester to see if the hoof is tender. We may also do a flex test to try to determine where the lameness is.

Diagnostic blocks are used to find out exactly where the problem is. We block the nerves and joints before checking for lameness. This allows us to figure out what is really bothering your horse.

Once we have a localized area, we usually recommend imaging. X-rays will give us a look at the inner workings of your horse’s leg. We may also recommend an ultrasound to give us a really detailed look at the leg.

Once we are able to figure out what is bothering your horse, we will do everything we can to help him or her get better.

Equine Dentals

We are proud to offer equine dentistry and provide care for your horse's entire oral cavity. A horse's teeth and jaw function are vital to their overall well being, so dental care is an important part of your horse's health.

We provide floating for horses as well as a range of routine to advanced services. Proper dental care will ensure that your horse's teeth are not causing discomfort, pain, or other potential health issues.

Equine Boarding

We are proud to provide La Grande, OR and the surrounding communities with equine boarding services. We practice the highest standards of care and cleanliness for horses staying with us. We know that it takes a great deal of trust to leave your horse with someone else, so we want to assure you that we are professional, highly trained, and most of all, we love horses.

If there are any special requirements for your horse, please let us know so we can accommodate them.
