Equine Hospital – Veterinary Medicine

December 12, 2019

Mateo is an eight year old gelding oldenburg and he can jump the moon. Mateo was colicing and um I had my normal vet out
Chris Camp and we decided that he needed to go out to OSU.
And the minute I got there they were absolutely wonderful. We were met at the doors
It was after hours and there were people standing there waiting there, students they decided that he did need surgery He was in surgery for quite some time but pulled through. What I think makes the Large Animal Hospital special is all of these great clinicians are able to work together under one roof. The fact that uh… you have a
pretty tight-knit group of people. It’s not so large that it becomes uh… a situation we are you are not an important part
of the process OSU, I really feel as a Large Animal Tech is
kind of the gold standard. We also have a wide array of
the latest diagnostic equipment the nuclear scintigraphy for diagnosing lamenesses and the CT that we can put horse legs in so it’s not just radiographs and xrays but it is CT scans and for small animals MRI
ultrasounds The uh relationship that OSU would like to
establish with referring veterinarians is very much a collaborative model. Refering veterinarians are the ones that
See the animal first and can provide us some valuable history and even more importantly they are the people
that we’re going to be sending the case back to The main cases that we tend to see
And are appropriate to see here are the ones that are beyond
the scope of general practice. And so since we provide specialty care for horses and the other species what’s not feasible to do an general
practice is very appropriate here. Any organ system needing we do surgical type care of
Or we do medical management of because we have the specialty expertise to handle that. We have three qualified internal medicine specialists
here I am also boarded in sports medicine and rehabilitation for large animals. In addition we have four equine surgeons
here. The job of any veterinarian is a huge
responsibility individually dealing with a life and not only that but not only that you’re
dealing with the life that impacts another and that being that of the client. Communicating a plan and potential costs in potential complications is really
important early on in the process and then adjusting as needed. I think that’s one of
the great things about Oregon State as what we can provide the clients so round-the-clock care is truely round
the clock twenty four seven There is not an hour that goes by that
a patient is not being monitored. And you’re doing everything from physical exams to making sure their
catheters are doing well just all that all that stuff you know needs to happen not necessarily between the hours of
nine and four but all hours. What OSU facility did for me
was uh… it was just amazing. to have the facility here in Oregon
to be able to take your horse there To be able to know that no matter what the outcome is that the very best care is there for your horse it’s like having the best physician doing cancer surgery for you there is no better than OSU.
