Pacific Crest Equine offers internal medicine diagnostics, therapeutics and intensive care management for both neonatal foals and adults.
We offer 24-hour emergency and intensive care monitoring for our hospitalized patients. Our facilities include four climate-controlled and video-monitored ICU stalls. A doctor is on-site 24 hours a day to provide overnight care of all critical cases including neonatal intensive cases, colic management, and surgical aftercare.
For our intensive care patients we have the technology to provide EKG monitoring, blood gas analysis, and pulse oximetry. We also have the capabilities to administer fresh frozen plasma as well as whole blood transfusions for life threatening conditions.
Neonatal management is available for a wide range of conditions including premature birth, sepsis, HIE, pneumonia and colic. Foals can be maintained in recumbancy on supportive mats while receiving oxygen, intravenous nutrition and circulatory support. Once back on their feet, we are equipped to provide fluids via a foal back-pack system to maintain maternal contact during recovery.
With experienced veterinarians, advanced digital imaging and an on-site laboratory we are able to diagnose and treat a wide range of medicine cases. Local advanced laboratory services and pathology examinations are offered through the Tulare outreach of UC Davis with fast, efficient turn around of results. The Pacific Crest team offers the exceptional medical services in a compassionate and ethical manner.
Isolation of contagious cases can be managed with our large experienced personnel and modern facilities. These horses will receive the same level of expert care without risk of contamination to our patients or the remainder of your herd.
Wellness programs are customized to provide appropriate vaccination, dental care, fecal analysis, health examinations and nutritional advice to suit all horses from geriatrics to active competition horses. Please check out our wellness page to select the program that is right for you.
