The Maurice Veterinary Clinic is committed to helping pet owners, horse owners, and other vet practitioners in Maurice, Lafayette, Youngsville, Abbeville, and throughout south-central Louisiana. Their in-house laboratory provides a wide range of multi-species testing batteries and diagnostic services, including EIA Coggins testing with fast turnaround times. In addition to comprehensive diagnostic services, the Maurice Vet Clinic provides wellness care, vaccinations, dental care, surgery, dermatology, chiropractic services, and emergency care. Their equine-specific services also include reproduction, lameness exams, and soft-tissue surgeries including hernia repair. Their team of vet practitioners and technicians are ready to provide skilled and compassionate care for your horses.
Along with standard Coggins testing for regulatory purposes, their equine infectious anemia resources include advice on which symptoms to look out for (fever, depression, weight loss, small lesions, and secondary infections). The Maurice Vet Clinic also offers an advisory note that, while equine infectious anemia is still very rare, horses living in the tropical climate of the Gulf Coast states have a higher risk of contracting the disease.
