Founded in 1987 by Drs. Ellis and Baxter, the Mid-Rivers Equine Centre to fill a need for emergency equine care in the local horse community of eastern Missouri. Today, this clinic has grown into a full-fledged equine hospital and surgical facility. From routine vaccinations to infectious disease to colic treatment, their top priority is their equine patients’ care.
Their equine care disciplines include sports medicine, internal medicine, reproductive care, surgical suite, and wellness care. Their wellness care program offers a range of services for your horse including dentistry, deworming, vaccinations, health certificates, nutrition consultation, and an in-house, state-certified Coggins testing. They offer standard Coggins tests for equine infectious anemia with turnaround times of about7-10 business days, but they can also do rush Coggins testing within 24 hours. They can email you results as soon as the test as completed and as needed for extra copies.
The Mid-Rivers Equine Centre is open Monday through Friday 8:30am – 5pm and Saturday 8am – 12pm, but they also have after-hours emergency care.
