Equine Care & Rehab

Equine Care & Rehab

Rx Equine will do what is prescribed by your equine veterinarian. 

Whether you have a post-surgical horse that needs a quiet environment, bandage changes and constant monitoring, or just an under the weather, special horse: we can provide a high level of excellent, individualized care for your horse.  Having a sick or injured horse is stressful enough, let us manage the day to day care and rehabilitation so that you can get back to enjoying your horse again as quickly as possible!

Having your horse away from home can be unnerving. To make it easier, we’ll update you frequently with news of your horse’s progress.  You will feel well informed even if you’re not local.   When your horse is in our care, we’ll also schedule and attend farrier, veterinary and other team member appointments in addition to managing regular care, supplements, grooming, blanketing and feeding protocols.

In addition to traditional veterinary-prescribed treatment methods, we offer a variety of complementary modalities that may fit in well with your veterinarian’s prescribed rehabilitation protocol to help your horse heal faster.

Here are just a few of the many services we offer:

  • Stall confinement
  • Administration of veterinarian prescribed medications
  • Post surgical care (colics, orthopedics, etc.)
  • Daily controlled exercise for rehabbing horses
  • IV catheter maintenance
  • Cast management
  • Bandaging, simple to complex wound bandaging
  • Game Ready™ Equine cold compression therapy
  • Cryotherapy
  • Magnetic therapy via boots and blankets
  • Standing/support wraps
  • Cold/hot hosing
  • Blanketing and grooming
  • Clipping (body/trace clipping)
  • Frequent monitoring including night watch
  • Freeze Branding
  • Acupuncture
  • Sheath cleaning
  • Shoeing / trimming

DVM, MS, DIPLOMATE ACSV

I have known and worked with Candy for over 10 years.  She has been gifted with a love and passion for helping horses in such a way that I have grown to rely on her many times for care of my patients.  I appreciate her attentiveness and nurturing care that she provides for our patients. Candy has great perspective on complications. When her patients are having problems, she effectively communicates those to me so we can formulate plans for success.  I am thankful for Candy’s help and experience.

Ranchers

Earlier this year, one of the ranch horses had sustained a serious leg injury in a fence on the property.  Once released from the vet, we needed respite care for this horse close to the vet’s office until he could return to the ranch.  Candy provided that care.  Her expertise and knowledge of horses, and her gentle “hands on” therapy was just what was needed to get the horse back on his feet!    We have total confidence in her abilities and would recommend her highly to any animal and its owner in need of the services she offers!
