Large Animal Services
Dr. Shannon Puype is highly experienced and enjoys working with large animals including horses, cows, sheep, goats, and pigs. If you are looking for a partner to help you care for your livestock animals, look no further.
Annual physical exams, vaccines, and deworming programs are provided to keep your horse healthy and protected.
If you will be traveling with your horse or bringing a new horse into your stable/property, a Coggins test is highly recommended and may be required to attend a competition or event. A Coggins test is a blood test to determine if a horse is a carrier of Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA), a viral disease found in horses. EIA is usually spread by horse flies biting an infected horse, then biting a healthy horse. Symptoms include a high fever, labored breathing, exhaustion, and anemia. A recovered horse will usually be a carrier for their entire life and remain a threat to other horses. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Puype for this important blood work.
