An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language.

Large Animals

Horses, Herds, and Health

Our primary responsibility is to help you keep your animals healthy!

Chaparral Veterinary Center received a merit award and was runner-up for Hospital of the Year in the Veterinary Economics Hospital Design Contest in 1989.

We understand your horses, cattle, and other large animals are valuable to you. The care we provide is aimed at protecting their health through early detection of potential problems. Therefore, we recommend annual comprehensive veterinary health and dental examinations, accompanied by appropriate immunizations, for all of our equine patients. For other large animal patients, herd health management and consultations are recommended.

Chaparral Veterinary Center is proud to offer an on-site laboratory where we perform blood chemistry panels and hematology panels, microscopic cytology, microscopic fecal examinations, and an array of other diagnostic tests. Our center also has its own Equine Infectious Anemia USDA Certified Coggins Laboratory. We perform all of our Coggins testing in-house, resulting in a rapid turnaround time for your results.

Our team of veterinary professionals is skilled and experienced in caring for large animals and enthusiastic about offering cutting-edge technology in a language you can understand. Together we will create the best plan for your animal care needs and lifestyle.
