Hospitalization

If your horse requires an overnight stay, please leave the halter with your horse but please take your lead ropes and other tack home with you. Halters should include an identification tag. If you don't have an ID tag, the reception desk staff can provide one for your horse.

The VMC had environmentally-controlled barns so your horse will be comfortable in all weather conditions.

Visitation hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Clients may make arrangements with the primary clinician or senior veterinary student assigned to their horse. Visitation is restricted to 30 minutes. If an emergency occurs in the area where your horse is housed while you are visiting, you may be asked to leave.

Hay and grain are provided as a routine service during your horse's hospitalization. The VMC has a variety of common grains. If your horse is on a special diet or supplements, please bring these with you and we will ensure that your horse remains on that diet/supplement during its stay.

Confidentiality

The VMC takes great care to protect the confidentialty of our patients. Therefore, photos are not permitted unless prior approval has been granted by the primary clinician.  Also, clinicians and students are not able to discuss other patients with you.

Isolation Facilities

The VMC has equine isolation facilities. If your horse requires hospitalization within the isolation facilities due to the presence of a potentially communicable disease, access is restricted to hospital personnel only. However, clients may see their horses via a video feed available in a private consultation room.
