Founded in 2008, Lupine Valley Equine Veterinary Services is a 100% ambulatory practice committed to providing high quality veterinary care to horses, ponies, donkeys, and mules within the state of Maine.
Our preventative care services include wellness exams, vaccinations, deworming program development and nutrition counseling. Our large geriatric horse population greatly benefits from our abilities to diagnose and treat various endocrine diseases (Cushing's Disease, Insulin Resistance, Equine Metabolic Syndrome), as well as our in-house laboratory. Dr. Benner has a strong interest in lameness diagnosis and treatment. Our portable digital radiograph and ultrasound units provide state-of-the-art diagnostics at your farm! LVEVS is also capable of performing surgeries at your farm including castrations, Caslick's, mass removal, and laceration repair. (Note: LVEVS does not perform colic surgery).
We offer emergency service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Common emergencies include colic, choke, lacerations, and lameness. Our portable ultrasound unit can be utilized for colics unresponsive to routine medical treatment.
Please Note: Lupine Valley Equine is closed on weekends except for emergencies. Medications are dispensed only from Monday through Friday.
Lupine Valley Equine offers experienced veterinary care, with the most current equine knowledge and state-of-the-art diagnostics and treatments. You and your horse will be glad you found Lupine Valley Equine Veterinary Services!
