It is our goal to deliver the most complete service as efficiently as possible. The length of your visit is variable depending on your horse's specific needs.
Give yourself plenty of time for the appointment. You are welcome to bring snacks/lunch and we have a bagel shop along with several vending machines in our lunchroom, as well as many local restaurants. You may wait in the breezeway where your horse's examination will be conducted or we also have coffee available for you in our Small Animal Reception area.
Our facility has 50 stalls and is equipped with dedicated areas for each specialty.
Should your visit require hospitalization, your horse will be monitored 24/7 by your primary faculty clinician, residents, veterinary nursing staff, and senior veterinary students.
We encourage patient visits between the hours of 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and 4-6:30 p.m. Just stop by the reception desk and a receptionist will page someone to meet you and take you back to your horse's stall. If those times aren't convenient for you, please let us know and we will make arrangements for you.
You can expect a call once daily from your veterinary team regarding your horse's wellbeing unless other arrangements are made. You will be contacted as soon as possible if a problem arises.
You are welcome to leave your trailer at the VTH. You may park it along the east side of the parking lot.
At the end of your appointment or when you come to pick up your horse, you will go into the Large Animal Reception Desk where you will pay your bill and receive your discharge instructions. Once you have finished there you will proceed to the breezeway where you will meet up with someone from your veterinary team and go over your discharge sheet to be sure all questions are answered and that you have any medications you need. Now it is time to load up so you may pull your trailer into the breezeway. If you have additional questions or concerns after discharge do not hesitate to call us at (970) 297-4471.
We also understand that the care of your horse involves many people. If you have not been directly referred by a primary care veterinarian, please let us know if there is a veterinarian we need to provide information to regarding the treatment of your horse.
Our treatment capabilities, including stem cell therapy, foaling abilities, and CT imaging of stifle joints, are on the forefront of equine medicine. Learn More...
