Wellness Programs

Vaccinations, deworming, regular dental exams and maintenance, nutritional consultations, microchipping and much more.  Our wellness packages provide affordable options for  the  best care of your equine companion.  Please contact us for details on how  our  preventative medicine programs address  your horse’s needs.


Advanced Dentistry
Regular dental care is a vital part of every horse’s well-being.  As a frequent problem, sharp points develop on the cheek teeth, which potentially cause weight loss, head shaking, infections, choking, and even colic. In order to provide the highest level of dental care, we use powered equipment to efficiently level your horse’s teeth and remove these sharp points.  Make sure you check out our dental care package for more savings.


Field Surgery
Modern Equine offers a wide variety of surgeries that can be safely performed in the field setting. Castrations, hernia repair and tumor removals are just a couple of examples of what we can do for your horse. 


Lameness Examinations
Whether you have a high-level performance horse or a pleasure companion, we take pride in performing a comprehensive lameness exam for diagnosis and proper treatment of the problem.  Knowledge, experience and a thorough strategic approach together combined with our state-of-the-art diagnostic modalities allow us to better pinpoint the source of lameness and help your horse get back in the game or on the trail.

Modern Equine works with farriers so that together as a team we can offer the best therapeutic shoeing options possible. 


We are equipped with state-of-the-art digital X-ray and ultrasound systems that allow us to make a diagnosis in the field so that treatments can be initiated as soon as possible.  Our diagnostic capabilities include industry-leading image quality and service for your horse in the field.


Pre-Purchase Examination
Purchasing a new horse is a big commitment.  We can help you determine if a particular horse is right for you and the intended use prior to the purchase.  The examination includes a full physical exam, a neurologic exam, a soundness exam and we also offer drug testing to make sure that you enter into any purchase armed with the most information possible.

Reproduction and Neonatal Care
We have extensive experience with breeding mares with fresh, cooled or frozen semen, stallion collection, embryo transfer, and foaling assistance.  From routine newborn foal check to critical care we are prepared to attend to the needs of the new addition to your barn family.
