Because every minute counts in an emergency, we will always ensure you have help for your horse when you need it. Dr. Jordan is usually able to meet you at the clinic or come to your farm within 30 minutes of receiving a call that your animal needs emergency care. In the rare instance that she is unable to immediately come in, we always have an agreement with another local veterinarian who will be able to see your horse right away.
There is no charge for phone consultations after regular work hours, so call even if you are unsure whether an emergency visit is needed. Dr. Jordan will be happy to advise you whether she recommends an immediate visit.
We most commonly see horses on emergency for colic, choke, laceration repairs, or lameness problems. We are able to run blood tests in our office so that results are available with thirty minutes. We also have a portable x-ray so we can take radiographs if your horse develops founder or another cause of lameness. Have fast access to these tests allows us to make a diagnosis more quickly so that treatment can begin.
