Large Animal Services:

Here at Meadow Vista Veterinary Clinic, we see a wide range of animals including Bovine (cows), Equine (horses), Caprine (goats), Ovine (sheep) and Porcine (pigs). Services include vaccinations, well checks, treatment for minor colics, lacerations, dental procedures (floats), cold laser therapy, lameness, and emergencies. Also, we provide health certificates for travel to different states. (requirements vary for more information go to import requirements )  Both Dr. Pam Pussich and Dr. Joe Sheldon are versed in large animal medicine as well as small animal medicine.

Additional Services: 


Digital Radiography:

As a part of our commitment to providing quality medicine for our patients, we are equipped with digital radiography which allows us to provide our patients with safer, more efficient imaging services. Digital radiography is safer for our patients because it exposes them to less radiation by making imaging easier to complete. 

Hand and Power Floating:

Yearly examinations allow us to monitor the health of our patients which includes checking the teeth. At the time of the horses exam, our doctors may recommend floating. We require sedation for the floating procedure because we are able to balance the mouth for equal wear on the teeth. The reason we require sedation with horses is because instinctively they are flight animals and react to the equipment used. We are able to perform both hand and power floats depending on what the patient needs. Horses have hypsodont teeth that do not have nerves close to the surface like humans do. Their nerves are deeper within the tooth so floating does not cause them pain unless it is overdone.

Bad teeth can result in a variety of health and behavior changes in horses. Here are some of the most common complaints:

  • Poor performance
  • Weight loss
  • Head tossing
  • Inability to collect or stay collected
  • Behavior change
  • Dropping feed
  • Head shy
  • Long stems of hay in feces
  • Decreased appetite
  • Not wanting to turn to one side or another
  • Opening mouth while carrying a bit

Laser therapy for large animal:

Companion Laser Therapy can help a multitude of problems commonly seen in our equine friends. The most common being acute and chronic laminitis, acute and chronic back pain, back disorders, degenerative joint disease, foot disorders, fractures, greased heels, hip joint disorders, hygroma of the elbow,  joint related injuries, lameness disorders, tendonitis, and wound healing.
