Skilled Care for Serious Equine Medical Conditions
The facility at Columbia Equine allows our veterinarians and staff to provide in-depth medical and hospitalization services. We are able to provide complete workups and treatment for medical colic and other gastrointestinal diseases, renal disease, neurological disease, respiratory disease, metabolic disease, ill neonates, wound management, and many other problems.
The barns at our hospital hold a total of 10 stalls that are separated in three different buildings to help control infectious disease and separate unfriendly neighbors and stallions. Three stalls are equipped for critical patients requiring IV fluid administration. We also have outdoor paddocks available. Equine patients are cared for by veterinarians and experienced technicians in the hospital for patient monitoring of medical treatment of colics and other illnesses.
We have an in-house laboratory where we monitor basic blood values for critical patients, as well as a local reference laboratory where we receive complete blood counts and blood chemistry results within 12 hours. Advanced diagnostics, including endoscopy and ultrasound, are routinely used to evaluate complex medical cases.
