I’ve heard it said, and repeat it often, “If you want to find a needle in a haystack… send in a horse. Not only will it find the needle, but it will come out of the haystack with the needle sticking out of its eye!” Despite our diligent care, horses seem to get themselves into trouble. We provide urgent veterinary services both during business hours and outside of regular business hours, 7 days a week for our regular clients. Urgent care services include colic, choke, lacerations, traumatic injuries, eye injuries, severe infections, foaling difficulties, etc. If you suspect your horse is requiring urgent care, please call (250) 588-9438. If you reach the voicemail, state clearly that you require urgent care, and a veterinarian will call you back within 15 minutes.  Do not email or text.  Emails and texts are not checked after regular business hours. Don’t know if it requires urgent care? Or what to do before or after you call? Please see our Client Education Section.
