Welcome to the Equine Medical Emergency, Critical Care and Neonatology Service at the VMTH. We provide 24-hour access to specialized emergency and intensive care management of all equine medical emergencies 365 days/year.

Board-certified surgeons and internal medicine specialists, who are focused on emergency, critical and neonatal care, direct and supervise the care of patients. Resident veterinarians, technicians and veterinary students are part of the cooperative effort involved in managing these patients.

A fully-staffed surgical team, including board-certified surgeons and anesthesiologists, is on stand-by 24-hours/day for surgical emergencies. Specialists in other disciplines such as orthopedics, neurology, reproduction, ophthalmology and cardiology are always available to assist in the diagnosis and management of multi-system disease or complicated conditions.
