When special cases require extra-special care
Epona Equine is a mobile farm call practice, however, when special circumstances require hospitalization they utilizes the horse stabling and treatment facilities at Van Isle Veterinary Hospital in Courtenay.
The 12 X 12-foot box stall at Van Isle is designed to ensure equine patients are safe and secure in climate-controlled comfort. Intravenous drips and other medical procedures can be performed, without the complications of the weather. The space is ideal for the treatment of medical conditions like colic, dehydration, and short-term emergency care. The facility can also be used for haul-in appointments for routine care.
