  • Ma vétérinaire me tient à cœur parce qu’elle est toujours à l’écoute de nos besoins. Elle prend le temps de m’expliquer et me fait sentir compétente dans les soins de mes chevaux. Elle est très ouverte et à l’écoute des autres intervenants comme notre maréchal. Je sais que je peux lui faire confiance.

  • Dr. Tara Shearer, Dr. Conrad Wilgenbusch and Dr. Ben Schultz are all pivotal in the success of our family run cow/calf farm and barrel horse training and racing. The vets and techs at Maverick Large Animal and Momentum Equine are beyond helpful, easy to talk to, all with extensive knowledge in their field. I know I can count on them with a quick call or visit to the clinic and all of our animals are in the best care. I could not have the success in and out of the rodeo arena without these people in my life.

    Paula Nova Scotia
  • Dr. Chad Hewitt is an amazing and forward thinking vet! He really believes it takes a team of professionals of different modalities to support our performance horses and his willingness to open up his practice for team members to participate in assessments, diagnosis and treatment plans is such an important part of our success.

  • Over the past 7 years of being a client I have brought in a large variety of cases to Dr Elliott and no matter what the odds are, she comes up with a plan and is always willing to try. From major lacerations and eye injuries, to lameness exams and gut health, she has helped me through it all. She brought my weanling colt back from the brink and I will forever be grateful for her dedicated work, passion and commitment to her clients. Dr Elliott is CORE to my herd, I wouldn’t go to anyone else.
    Kayla Alberta
  • Dr. Welsh has all the qualities of a great vet - knowledgeable, caring and friendly! He is of enormous comfort to me to have a vet that you can trust, not only for his veterinary care but also his manner with the horses. He always takes the time to educate me and ensure that I have a full understanding of the procedures and treatments. Would highly recommend him.

She patiently listens to our concerns and teaches us things to make us better horse owners. The health and welfare of our animals is always her top priority. Her compassion is exemplary. She is knowledgeable and driven to do her absolute best job every single time. Having her as a resource makes me a more confident Barn Manager and I am proud to have her as our Barn Vet. Fabulous!
