What We Do

The Equine Ambulatory Service is fully staffed and ready to take appointments for any of your horses’ needs in the field. The Equine Ambulatory service welcomed Dr. Sarah Kooy to the team in 2023. She joins Dr. Alfredo Sanchez who is a board-certified specialist in equine internal medicine and has his certification in animal chiropractic. Another valuable member of the team is Dr. Jimena Zuñiga, who is currently completing an internship in equine ambulatory medicine.

We offer a variety of on-farm services including routine wellness exams (vaccines, Coggins, parasite control), dentistry, lameness evaluations, field surgery, laceration repairs, purchase exams, mesotherapy, chiropractic evaluations and much more. We have the capability of performing radiographs, ultrasound examinations, gastroscopy and other diagnostic tests in the field. We also have access to additional in-house equipment and access to the JT Vaughan Large Animal Hospital, clinician consultations and laboratory services.

To schedule an appointment please call 334-844-4490. The Equine Ambulatory Service provides after-hours, weekend and holiday emergency care 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
