Shawnee Veterinary Hospital is world-renowned for its large animal services. Our founder, Dr. Michael Steward, is a member of the International Equine Hall of Fame. In addition to equine care, we are equipped to treat cattle, swine, llamas, alpacas, chickens, and small ruminants. Essentially, any type of animal which may be in your care! Our facility is equipped with stalls for horses or other large animal care, and easy loading and unloading.
If you believe that your horse or livestock could benefit from our large animal services, or your entire herd, please give us a call at (405) 275-0990. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have and schedule an appointment with one of our caring and knowledgeable doctors.
An annual physical examination allows our doctors to ensure that your horse is healthy and content. Routine wellness procedures such as deworming, vaccinations, and dental care are also critical to the health of horses. At your annual wellness exam, our doctors will check the body condition, mouth, teeth, coat, and musculoskeletal system of the patient, as well as test for parasites and offer advice for prevention.
Based on the physical examination, we may suggest further bloodwork or a fecal sample. Some important information we may ask for will include the date of the horse's last deworming, the number of other horses on the farm, whether your horse frequently travels off the farm, and what feed your horse regularly consumes.
Whether your horse is a competitor or a companion, preventing illness and lameness will ensure that you are able to spend more time in the saddle, and that you and your horse will be able to have a long and healthy relationship.
At Shawnee Animal Hospital, we make both house calls to assist with wellness procedures, and also have stalls in our facility for more in-depth procedures, and emergency services.
