Surgery Services

Our services are available to patients referred by veterinarians in private practice and to horse-owners without referrals. To schedule an appointment for your animal, please call our reception staff at (765) 494-8548 between 8am and 5pm Monday through Friday. 

In case of emergency, call the same number and tell the operator that you have an animal emergency. The operator will contact the clinician on call who will return your call.  

Normal receiving hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. with appointments scheduled at 9:30 a.m. or 1:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. We provide emergency care for sick or injured horses 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
