Our Facility

Austin Equine Hospital Facility

As leaders and collaborators in equine healthcare, Austin Equine Hospital strives to provide our clients with professional, compassionate and ethical care. Our facility is specifically designed to accommodate all manners of equine veterinary and surgical services. Our facility comprises four main units: Examination, Intermediate Care, Intensive Care and the Surgical Facility.

Two examination rooms are fully equipped with diagnostic and emergency care tools at all times to ensure prompt and comprehensive care for your horse. Advanced diagnostics include: two digital radiography machines, digital ultrasonography, 1-meter and 3-meter endoscopy/gastroscopy, shockwave, and colic kits.

The Intermediate Care barn comprises a shaded structure of 6 open-air, floor-padded stalls. An automatic fly-control spray system and individual stall fans ensure comfort for boarding horses during all seasons. Due to the temperate weather of Driftwood, heaters may be used in rare cases of extreme cold.

The Intensive Care Unit comprises 2 floor-padded stalls with 24-hour video surveillance. Our ICU protocol enforces strict control of infectious diseases and intimate care for our critically ill patients.

Please see our Surgical Facility page for more information.

The foundation of our diagnoses and treatments relies on sound, safe, and evidence-based principles of equine medicine. We are grateful for the opportunity to support your horsemanship endeavors, as well as the ability be a part of the ever-exciting and advancing field of equine research.

Commitment to Our Patients and Our Planet

Austin Equine Hospital aspires to be environmentally conscious, and strives to establish enduring commitments to conservation and sustainability. Count on us to arrive at your facility or barn in VW Jetta wagons that run on clean diesel fuel and average 50 mpg. We use rainwater collection from our facility’s large roof space to catch 3,000 gallons per inch of rain. With careful conservation we have ample water throughout the year. Horticulture aficionado Dr. Evans has carefully chosen drought and heat tolerant natives for our landscaping, and we conserve resources by recycling gray water from our stalls for plant watering and by using a special floor-cleaning machine for our exam rooms that consumes significantly less water than standard hoses.
