About Colorado Equine Clinic
Colorado Equine Clinic is a full-service equine veterinary practice established in 1988. We are passionate about the horse-human bond, offering medical care for horses in the Douglas, Jefferson, Arapahoe, Denver, and Elbert counties.
We recently opened a Small Animal Clinic at our practice in August 2019 allowing us to now be a full-service general practice small animal hospital. We work with cats and dogs to provide advanced, compassionate care using many of the same regenerative medicine techniques that we use with our equine patients.
Colorado Equine Clinic treats horses of all disciplines, levels, and ages. Our veterinarians have special interests in sports medicine, podiatry, and dentistry, and have obtained national certification to provide the alternative modalities of chiropractic, acupuncture, and farriery.
