Performance horses-Head for the Hills Veterinary Health Services Staff understands what it takes to keep your horse performing and showing at his/her optimal level.

Wellness care- "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" That saying holds true for horses. As part of our routine care, we provide vaccinations, deworming, sheath cleaning, castrations, Coggins testing, and dental floats. At the time of service we can discuss any issues you may have with your horse including nutritional needs, training programs, geriatric care, etc..

Export- All of our doctors are able to perform export services including blood testing (Coggins tests) and health papers and other paperwork.  

Time of need care- We offer care for your horse in case of medical colic, sickness, lameness, injury, metabolic problems, or chronic illness. Please contact Head for the Hills Veterinary Services for emergency care of your horse.

Geriatric care- Aged horses can have sub-clinical health care issues that can be identified and treated before they become a problem. If your horse is over 15 years of age we recommend a complete physical examination and blood testing to establish baseline values.

Lameness examination- Evaluate the locomotion of your horse. We use a variety of techniques to identify the source(s) of lameness including physical examination and palpation, flexion tests, and joint and diagnostic nerve blocks. Radiography and laboratory tests help us to further evaluate the source of your horse's lameness.  NOW AVAILABLE-"Back on Track" products!!

Surgery- Standing or recumbent surgery of the horse is performed for castration, biopsy and laceration repair.
