Keep your equine athlete performing his best whether he goes to work every day or just on the weekends. We are equipped with portable digital X-ray and ultrasound which allows us to make a diagnosis stall-side and create an appropriate treatment plan to get your horse on the fast track to soundness. Our veterinarians can assist with lameness issues from routine problems such as foot abscesses to complete performance evaluations and joint injections.
Iowa Equine offers emergency services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from colics to lacerations and everything in between. In the event that your horse needs specialized veterinary care, we work closely with the regional referral center to make sure that complicated medical issues are dealt with quickly for the best possible outcome.
Your horse's dental care is essential to his well being and regular examinations and dental maintenance are especially necessary for today's horses. With proper dental care your horse will utilize feed more efficiently, maintain proper body weight and carry a bit more comfortably when bridled. Our veterinarians are equipped with the latest power dentistry equipment making dental procedures more effective and more comfortable for your horse from drafts to minis.
No need to wait for blood test results when your horse is sick. We are able to run complete blood work in house to evaluate how your horses' immune system is working and assess how major organs are functioning. We also perform all fecal egg counts in house so that you don't have to worry about altered results from sample damage in shipping.
Iowa Equine veterinarians know horses are as different as the whorls on their foreheads. We can help you tailor vaccine and deworming plans to fit each of your equine athletes and companions so that they are protected from the pasture to the show pen. For horses that show or travel routinely we offer electronic Coggins and health certificates so that a forgotten form is a thing of the past. You can print as many forms as you would like with this system or access any of your horses' required documents from your smart phone or tablet.
Buying horses can be a considerable financial commitment. We can help you evaluate your prospect for soundness and longevity with a pre-purchase examination. Iowa Equine has the most advanced Digital X-ray system on the market which allows us to take our lameness exams further and evaluate joints for evidence of existing or impending problems so that you can make the best purchase possible.
Drs. Stay and White are skilled in surgery and will perform procedures that can be done safely in the field under standing sedation or injectable anesthesia. For more prolonged surgeries requiring gas anesthesia, some emergency procedures, and specialized procedures Iowa Equine will coordinate closely with our regular referral hospital or one of your choosing when possible. Our top priority is for your horse to get the best surgical care so that he can make a fast and complete recovery.
