The Equine hospital was built in 2019 to provide a location for equine emergencies, hospitalization, diagnostics and community outreach. Clean environments away from wind and dirt are difficult and often impossible to find at the barn. Bring your horse to a climate controlled, sterile room for safer joint injections, radiographs, ultrasound and laser therapy.
Medical management with 24 hour treatment/monitoring, this is most often used for medically treated colics.
Medical Wound/Injury Management
Wound care, eye care, mass removal
Upper and lower Airway Endoscopy- chronic cough, nose bleeds, nasal discharge, breathing concerns or noises. This is a great diagnostic tool to visualize an area otherwise difficult to evaluate.
Gastroscopy- gastric ulcers can be a cause of poor performance and colic. Take the guess work out of treatment and know for sure how and what to treat with.
Class IV Laser Therapy
Wound healing, treatment of soft tissue injury (tendons and ligaments), DSLD, arthritis, back pain
Your horse is an athlete and often mild discomfort can lead to poor performance. A thorough lameness evaluation can often pinpoint the cause of the lameness and a treatment plan can be developed. Lameness is one of the primary reasons for early retirement in the horse, so allow our doctors to intervene early in the process, to help ensure your horses have a long and comfortable athletic career.
Lameness exams can sometimes become complicated, and sterile blocks in or near synovial structures are needed to determine the location the lameness is coming from. Our sterile treatment room is specifically set up to accommodate such an exam.
Joint injections are best performed in a clean and controlled environment, especially as some joint injections require diagnostic guidance; for example in ultrasound guided neck injections, radiograph guided pastern and navicular bursa injections. Our hospital is uniquely set up to accommodate.
Ophthalmologist, dermatology and internal medicine referrals and consultation can be arranged at the equine hospital.
Ultrasound and Radiograph
Ultrasound probes are available for reproductive, abdominal and musculoskeletal exams. Radiographs can be taken digitally and interpreted at the time of the appointment. These images can be easily emailed to you and out for any external consultation.
A majority of lameness and locomotor soreness originates in the foot. Cooperation between equine veterinarians and farriers is essential to the health and continued success of your horse.
Dr. Lindsey Smogor has a special interest in equine podiatry (farriery). After graduating from the Oklahoma State Horseshoeing School in 2011, she continued to shoe horses while attending vet school. Since becoming a veterinarian she has continued her education and specialized training in podiatry.
To best serve your horse's podiatry needs, we encourage you to meet your farrier at our facility so radiographs or venograms (radiographs of the foot to visualize blood supply) can be taken and used to form a plan with your farrier and implement on site.
A CJF( certified journeyman farrier) Dave Pedersen can also be arranged to meet at the time of the appointment to do the corrective shoeing needed to treat your horses foot disease.
