Mid-Rivers (Mobile) Equine Centre

Mid-Rivers Mobile Equine Centre
The Mid-Rivers Mobile is our equine hospital on wheels. It provides horse owners access to the skills, technology, and expertise of a close to home equine referral hospital. The trailer includes an interior exam room for privacy, a lab, and a suite of diagnostic equipment including x-ray, and ultrasound equipment.

Types of treatment available: Treatment can be for minor medical issues, or it can involve more complicated tasks like advanced sports medicine and diagnostics. A sampling of services available includes pre-purchase exams, lameness exams, injections, ultra-sounds, x-rays, dentistry, reproductive medicine, and standing surgeries.

All are welcome: Treatment is NOT limited to horses competing at the events listed below. Our veterinarians may not be available at all times during the show, so be sure to make an appointment for your horse at the mobile hospital while we are the attending veterinarians. To make an appointment, please contact the office at 1-800-828-4517. We will be happy to see you.

  • Mobile Unit
    • As much of what we do involves sport-medicine related problems, we will need access to an outdoor/indoor arena for the purposes of lameness and pre-purchase exams.
    • The site must allow easy ingress/egress for trailers of all sizes. (If possible we prefer to set the unit away from the normal barn activity areas in an attempt to minimize the disruption and isolate horses arriving for office visits.)
    • We may have a need to keep a patient on site if stalls are available: One example would be a reproduction patient; depending on a mare's cycle a mare may need to stay on site for a few days awaiting ovulation before breeding her with cooled/frozen semen.
    • Communications with our office and internet connections with our main radiology server will be via cell phones requiring a strong signal for locations being considered.
    • Security is a concern requiring designated locations to have on-premise residents. Please call our office if you are interested in hosting The Mid-Rivers Mobile Unit; 1-800-828-4517, Dr Ellis will be happy to discuss this unique opportunity.
