Dr. Smith offers wellness exams, preventative care, nutritional consults, deworming, and routine vaccinations for equines. Coggins, bloodwork, fecal egg counts, and microchipping are also available and highly recommended. Laura is available for equine emergencies 24/7 for MRMVS clients.
Dr. Smith recommends annual oral exam and dental floating for all equines. Some of our performance horses need dental attention every 6-9 months. If you do not have a barn or shelter suitable for floating your horse, you can always schedule an appointment at Maple Ridge Farm.
