The horse is a majestic animal, a symbol of beauty and power. However, horses are a delicate species which require specific and often urgent care.
Our team puts its skills and experience at your disposal to ensure the health of your equine. Our equine veterinarians are available 24/7 to provide the necessary care for your horse, pony or donkey.
The diseases are species specific. We therefore have medicines and equipment adapted to the management of equine emergencies.
Some specific information to remember
Digestive disorders (colic, esophageal obstructions, ...) are among the most common emergencies in equine medicine. During colic, walk your horse before the arrival of the veterinarian and prevent it from laying down. The veterinarian will provide the care necessary for its stabilization.
Sometimes what appears to be superficial sores or lesions can actually be serious and generate complications. Emergency care is often essential. A careful inspection of the sore or lesion will be necessary to determine the effect; and it is also important to determine there is no underlying fracture.
Lameness can take many forms, ranging from simple discomfort to a horse who can no longer place his foot. The management of lameness varies, but should in no case be taken lightly. Some types or lameness may be urgent and require immediate veterinary examination. While waiting for the arrival of the veterinarian on duty, avoid running your horse and keep it immobile as much as possible.
Be sure not to give him any medication before the veterinarian arrives to avoid skewing the clinical exam.
Foaling is a moment of grace but can also be stressful. We provide guidance during the delivery of the foal and provide care to your foal.
If complications require hospitalization (dystocia, weak foal, ...), our veterinarian will stabilize your horse before its transfer to the clinic to avoid any risk during transport.
Respiratory, neurological and other emergencies
Respiratory, neurological and other emergencies will be taken care of by our veterinarian. The same applies to geriatric horse patients or those horses living on the prairie.
Our emergency veterinarians are available to manage emergencies during riding contests. Depending on the type of emergency, the veterinarian will provide guidance on initial first aid before arrival.
