“Our main goal is to provide the highest quality veterinary medicine along with excellent client service to horse owners.”
This means that we not only diagnose and treat the horse’s problems, but that we address all of the owner’s concerns and explain any questions to their satisfaction.
THE FOUR BASIC REQUIREMENTS NEEDED TO ACCOMPLISH OUR MISSION ARE:
Arizona Equine is permanently staffed with five veterinary specialists and four intern veterinarians.
In this day and age of technology, advanced equipment is a necessity. Our ability to accurately diagnose and treat patients is magnified many fold by judicial use of appropriate equipment. Conversely, the use of advanced equipment without knowledgeable veterinarians to use the equipment and interpret the results is not of much use.
Diagnostic equipment that Arizona Equine has in place includes:
Therapeutic equipment in use includes:
Like any large hospital, the support staff is indispensable to obtaining the mission of Arizona Equine.
These exceptional staff members help with the day-to-day chores involved in running the hospital. Without them, the clinic could not function properly.
Arizona Equine started in 1984 with construction of the main hospital. In 1991 a larger barn was added to provide more inside stalls and room for the nuclear scintigraphy facility. In 1996 outside pens were added to give us a place to house horses that did not require intensive care. In 1999 we added another treatment room, more doctor’s offices, and more storage room. The physical facility has proven to be very functional and is a great asset in helping Arizona Equine provide exceptional veterinary care.
In 2005 we added a state of the art magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) room. MRI is superior to all other modalities in the diagnoses of soft tissue and bony issues in the limb.
