Performance Equine Vets provides advanced emergency services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Our facility is strictly designed to handle equine emergencies only. We will work with your veterinarian to make sure your horse gets the best care possible before, during and after hospitalization.

Our experienced and dedicated staff will assist in stabilizing your horse, diagnosing their condition, and providing cutting edge treatment. We provide comprehensive evaluations, advanced diagnostics, as well as a detailed treatment plan including surgical options if needed. We treat every horse like its our own. We want our customers to feel involved in the process and informed along the way. Our clients receive a minimum of daily updates about the progress of their horses in our hospital, we often times communicate more frequently while patients are in critical care. Visitation is arranged through the primary care veterinarian and/or technician in charge of the case. We have a team of expert veterinary specialists we involve and collaborate with on our cases. These include surgical specialist, internal medicine specialist, radiologist and ophthalmologist. Our detail oriented approach to veterinary medicine along with our compassion in the care we provide to our patients sets us apart from the rest.
