Dawsonville Equine Veterinarian: Large Animal Services
Wellness care – ”An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. That saying holds true for horses also. As part of our routine care we provide vaccinations, deworming, Coggins testing, and dental care. At the time of service we can discuss any issues you may have with your horse including nutritional needs, training programs, geriatric care, etc..
Time of need care – We offer care for your horse in case of medical colic, sickness, lameness, injury, metabolic problems, or chronic illness. We are equipped to provide intravenous fluids and most laboratory results are obtained within 24 hours. Emergency care for our regular clients is provided on a 24 hour basis.
Geriatric care – Aged horses can have sub-clinical health care issues that can be identified and treated before they become a problem. If your horse is over 15 years of age we recommend a complete physical examination and blood testing to establish baseline values.
We are also proud to offer large animal care. From cattle to llamas, we can do it all. We are happy to make farm calls by appointments.
How Often Should Your Horse See a Vet?
An adult horse is recommended to have a complete veterinary examination once a year, and horses older than 20 years should be seen at least twice a year so that your vet can spot any early signs of illness.
If you notice signs of sickness in your horse, you should always schedule an appointment to see your local Dawsonville vet.
Signs & Symptoms that Your Horse or Cattle May Be Sick
