Founded in 1995, Sunrise Equine Veterinary Services is an ambulatory equine practice with two vet practitioners and several administrative staff. Rather than go to a mixed-animal vet practice in which horse care may be a complementary service, SEVS prides itself on its singular focus on equine care. The goals include offering the best possible veterinary care, maintaining up-to-date testing and care protocols, and providing client education for equine health. Located in North Ranch, Sunrise Equine serves the counties of Chisago, Isanti, Polk-WI, and some surrounding areas.
Among their comprehensive set of equine care services is a federally-accredited in-house diagnostic lab capable of EIA Coggins testing and other diagnostic services. In addition to reporting results to horse owners, they can submit official results through GlobalVetLink. They can issue the required health certificate of veterinary inspection and provide travel resources and interstate rules for Wisconsin and other states. They also have diagnostic imaging, treatment, reproductive, and other equine healthcare. A heated treatment facility was added in 2006. Their clinic is open Monday through Friday 8am—4:30pm and Saturday 8am—12pm. They also provide 24/7 emergency care services.
