Committed to providing quality and compassionate care for your horses

Equine Ambulatory Care / In Clinic Services

For the routine appointments or emergency care, the CVH equine team has a fully equipped mobile unit to provide veterinary services in the field setting and in 2008, CVH re-opened their equine doors to haul in services to help reduce our client's trip and mileage fees.  Personalized preventative care is provided for the single horse owner or for stables.

In addition, procedures such as dentistry, on-site reproductive ultrasonography and radiology are available. 

Emergency care is available 24 hours a day and our equine veterinarians are also available for onsite equine events or organizations.

Emergency Medicine

We share emergency services with other local veterinary hospitals to provide emergency veterinary availability during off-business hours. You may call 503-852-7009 anytime to be connected with the veterinarian on call.

If you receive their voicemail, please leave a message as they may be with another emergency and they will return your call as soon as they are able.

Pre-Purchase Exams

We offer a variety of services to assist you with a horse purchase that meets your performance requirements and needs.

Physical and Flexion exams, digital radiographs, lab work, and written evaluations are all types of services that can be performed at your request.

This examination is a very thorough and complete procedure to assist the purchaser in making the most informed decision as possible.


Equine Dentistry

Carlton Veterinary Hospital offers complete dental care for your horse with the Powerfloat. The Powerfloat is both faster and more efficient than hand floating, allowing us to do a superior job of floating your horse's teeth.

The small, guarded head allows access to all areas of your horse's mouth without causing any damage to the soft tissues of the mouth and tongue.

Equine Ultrasonography

Ultrasound has allowed Carlton Veterinary Hospital to produce high-resolution images of the equine musculoskeletal system to accurately diagnose a multitude of conditions that may affect your horse.

Call 503-852-7009 for more information or an appointment.
