The Convenience of Equine Ambulatory Services Near You

Whether for routine care or urgent medical needs, bringing your horse to the vet can be stressful. Here, our vets discuss the benefits of equine ambulatory services in Ocala and how convenient it is if your horse needs veterinary care.

The Benefits of Having Access to Equine Ambulatory Services

Transporting your horse to a veterinary hospital can be challenging, especially if they are sick or injured. With equine ambulatory services, you can relax knowing that the care your horse needs is coming to you.

There are many benefits to ambulatory care for horses. Along with easier care for very young, sick or old horses, you can also rest easy knowing that you won't need to leave your other farm, facility or animal-related responsibilities to seek out care for your horse. The veterinarian and their technicians will travel to you and provide necessary veterinary care at your farm. This also allows for great communication and cohesive care between the mobile veterinary team, farriers, trainers and yourself.

What services are provided by equine ambulatory units?

One of the largest benefits of equine ambulatory care (horse ambulance services) is that your animal gets the care of a veterinarian without the stress of visiting a veterinary hospital. All of the medical care required will be done right on your farm.

The specific services offered by each equine ambulatory unit vary, but some of the most commonly offered services include the following:

  • Dentistry
  • Diagnostic imaging
  • Internal medicine
  • Sports medicine
  • Surgical services
  • Lameness exams
  • Emergency care
  • Preventive care
  • Reproductive services
  • Vaccinations and preventive care

These services can be provided for horses of all ages and breeds. Whether you have foals requiring early care or adult horses experiencing sports-related injuries. We are here to help.

Our experienced equine veterinary team is on call for emergency care in certain cases for existing clients in the Ocala area. If we are unable to provide the needed services, we will refer you to a local equine hospital.
