Emergency Care in Gordonsville, VA
At Keswick Equine Clinic, we provide 24/7care for horses experiencing medical conditions requiring urgent attention. We understand that emergencies can be confusing and scary, and they happen when it can be challenging for you to find a veterinarian. We highly encourage you to use your regular veterinarian (who maintains your horse’s vaccine and welfare status) when you experience an emergency, and we hope that veterinarian is us!
Our team includes technical staff and experienced veterinarians that are ready to help your horse when you need us most. Our team at Keswick Equine Clinic is led by board-certified veterinarians who specialize in handling sudden injuries and illnesses in horses and donkeys.
How We Can Help:
We understand that no matter how safe and healthy your horse is, something can always happen unexpectedly. If your horse experiences sudden acute lameness, high fevers, foaling difficulties, colic, choke, or laceration, contact our office for urgent care.
