At Carolina Equine Hospital, we provide around-the-clock services for horses experiencing medical conditions requiring urgent attention.     We understand that emergencies can be confusing and scary, and they happen when it can be challenging for you to find a veterinarian. We are proud to provide 24-hour emergency care services for the horse community. Our team includes technical staff and experienced veterinarians that are ready to help your horse when you need us most.

How We Can Help

We understand that no matter how safe and healthy your horse is, something can always happen unexpectedly. If your horse experiences sudden acute lameness, high fevers, foaling difficulties, colic, and laceration, contact our office for urgent care. Our mobile digital X-ray equipment offers high-quality radiographs to help diagnose different kinds of emergency disorders. Emergency services may require that you transport your horse to our hospital.
