Deworming and Treatment for Internal Parasites
Unfortunately, all horses are susceptible to worms and other internal parasites. Regular assessment of parasite load and deworming is a crucial part of your horse’s health. We’ll review your current regimen of fecal exams and deworming medications and possibly prescribe new ones.
Treatment for Infectious Diseases
We strive to avoid serious problems before they happen, administering vaccinations for tetanus, rabies, equine encephalomyelitis and other preventable infectious diseases. Nonetheless, if your horse contracts an infectious disease, such as strangles, we deliver rapid and effective treatment to minimize damage and restore health.
Treatment for Injury or Trauma
When your horse has an accident and suffers an injury or other trauma, Animal Medical Services of the Rockies, PC is there for you. Whether it’s a head injury, broken bone, wound or exertional rhabdomyolysis, we’ll prescribe the best therapies and neccessary medications to keep your horse comfortable and speed up the healing process.
We offer manual therapy, acupuncture and laser therapy. These modalities have scientifically been proven to stimulate healing and control pain. This makes them appropriate for all horses from the backyard buddy to the high end performance horse.
