From the Horsetrader - June 6th, 2013 - Special Section

Bakersfield Veterinary Hospital
(661) 832-1150 www.bakersfieldvet.com

Bakersfield Veterinary Hospital is the leading provider of equine veterinary services in Kern County. We provide high quality care and diagnostic workups in the following areas: preventative medicine, internal medicine, lameness, reproduction, neonatal care, dentistry, podiatry and elective soft tissue surgery. We have three ambulatory veterinary units, ultrasound, full service digital radiology, upper airway endoscopy and a limited surgical facility.

While Equine medicine is our main focus, we also provide service to small ruminant food animals and some exotics. We come from a rural background, with strong work ethics. We understand the importance of “old fashioned” values and hope to be a source of inspiration to future generations of Veterinarians. We are committed to keep pace with the newest technology and treatment modalities while maintaining our long-standing tradition of excellent animal health care.

Equine Veterinary Specialists Medical Center
(951) 737-1615 www.equinevetspecialists.com

“Excellence in All Things” is our motto and the basis for everything we do. Equine Veterinary Specialists Medical Center was started with a specific mission, vision, and goal for its future by Dr. Paul Wan. He saw a need in the area for a practice that could integrate all aspects of equine veterinary health care in one place. A practice that could not only take care of the horse’s wellness and occasional emergency health care needs in the field, but also provide any advanced diagnostics, therapies, and treatments that the patient might need in a hospital setting. We work closely with other equine professionals (veterinarians, trainers, farriers), as well as owners, to unite modern medical techniques and faithful service to achieve the best outcome for our patients.

Equitage Horsecare

General medical care, along with preventative medicine, is the foundation for good health for all animals.

Grim is one of the few veterinarians in the area offering advanced equine dentistry in San Diego and she has added integrative medicine through her study of acupuncture.

Mojave River Equine Veterinary Service
Apple Valley
(888) 247-8337 www.mojaveriverequine.com

Dr. Jacob Johnson is excited to announce the acquisition of Advanced Equine Dental (formerly Brian Borg’s practice). Having decided to move his family to Australia, Brian contacted Dr. Johnson because of the shared passion for the need of quality equine dentistry and the educational focus of the benefits for the owners. We offer mobile services throughout Southern California for clients from one to multiple horses. For better pricing we encourage clients to set up clinics with friends, neighbors or associates.

Dr. Johnson provides mobile services for advanced dentistry throughout Southern California, for individual clients and veterinarian’s referrals. Services include floating, occlusal adjustments, extractions, odontoplasty, restoration, dental surgery. As a majority mobile veterinary service, Dr. Johnson is able to service the patient’s needs through onboard diagnostic imaging (digital radiology), advanced dentistry (restoration, extractions, odontoplasty, occlusal adjustment, floating, dental surgery), preventive medicine (routine check-ups, vaccines, deworming, etc.), Coggins and health certificates, as well as after hours emergency procedures.

Riviera Equine
Santa Ynez
(805) 245-0561 www.rivieraequine.com

Riviera Equine is a progressive veterinary practice led by Dr. Phoebe Smith, a board-certified specialist in internal medicine. The first of its kind in the central coast region, Riviera Equine provides advanced, specialty medical care for horses in the Santa Ynez Valley and surrounding areas. Utilizing state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and a balance of knowledge and experience, we bring ivory tower medicine stall-side.

Challenging internal medicine cases once limited to referral hospitals may now be treated on the ranch. Clinic appointments are also available in Santa Ynez and Los Alamos. We are pleased to have hospital privileges at Santa Lucia Veterinary Clinic and Alisos Canyon Equine Center.

The initiative to provide internal medicine services for horses in a mobile practice was prompted by advances in technology and the changing economic climate. A niche opened for specialty medicine without the cost of the hospital stay at the same time that digital ultrasounds and endoscopy equipment were miniaturized. With experience in teaching hospitals, private referral centers and general ambulatory practice, Dr. Phoebe Smith is uniquely qualified to provide hospital medicine in the farm and small clinic settings.
