What is the Equine Field Service?

The equine field service team is staffed by Dr. Luke Bass, DVM and Dr. Eric Renner, DVM as well as a highly qualified and trusted intern selected by both doctors.

The Equine Field Service provides both primary and 24-hour emergency care for equine patients in Northern Colorado. The service has two fully equipped ambulatory vehicles, including portable digital radiography (x-ray) and ultrasound technology.

It is our mission to provide the highest quality in equine medicine for your horse as a part of the CSU Equine Hospital, and when necessary, to incorporate the rest of our team, which includes nationally recognized specialists in equine surgery, sports medicine, internal medicine, reproduction, and complimentary medicine (chiropractor/acupuncture). Our intent is to make certain excel the needs of your horse and your own expectations. We look forward to serving you; we are always available to answer questions by telephone and e-mail.
