Excellence in Equine Medicine, Surgery, and Reproduction
Blue Water Equine Hospital features a state-of-art hospital with a critical care unit, surgical suite, in-house laboratory, and indoor arena. Our facility, utilized by our highly-skilled veterinarians, provides advanced treatment options for local horse owners.
Surgical suite and induction/recovery stall facilitates basic and advanced surgical procedures. Heavily padded recovery area provides a safe anesthetic recovery for our patients. Our hospital is equipped for soft-tissue, emergency, and orthopedic procedures, including arthroscopy.
Hospital stalls are utilized for hospitalized patients, including routine in-patient procedures, critical care, and high-risk foaling. This allows us to monitor surgical patients or provide intensive medical treatment for colics and sick foals. Our hospital offers 24/7 hospitalization and monitoring.
In-house laboratory is fully-equipped to process routine bloodwork, fecal exams, and cultures. This enables our hospital to monitor patients anytime day or night, making timely adjustments to treatment.
Isolation stalls are equipped for hospitalization of horses with potentially infectious diseases (colitis, respiratory disease). The independent ventilation system and location reduce risk of spreading illness, while allowing us to provide the intensive care that many of these horses need.
Turnout paddocks provide an opportunity for hospitalized patients to stretch their legs. Controlled excercise is beneficial for many of our patients.
Ambulatory trucks are fully stocked for both routine and emergency medical treatment at your barn. Our digital ultrasound and radiography units are also portable for on-farm diagnostics.
The indoor arena is utilized for lameness and prepurchase exams. Many times our hospitalized patients will also be turned-out or handwalked to facilitate their recovery.
Blue Water Equine Hospital is committed to providing the best veterinary care for your horse.
If you would like to see our hospital, please do not hesitate to give us a call. We would love to show you our wonderful facility.
