Emergency Veterinarian Hospital in San Angelo, TX

We would like to invite everyone to come and see our cutting edge emergency veterinary hospital as well as our cat and dog boarding facilities.  Western Veterinary hospital is being run by someone you are very familiar with, Gary D. Hodges, D.V.M.  

We are VERY excited about the new facilities as well as our horse rehabilitation and equine endoscopy procedures that we will be offering that have not previously been offered in our area.



Colic- a syndrome, describing abdominal discomfort in the equine species, can be a significant financial burden on anyone from the weekend Trail rider to the high performance Western or English rider. Typically, to take a horse to colic surgery, one can expect to spend anywhere from $5,000-$15,000, depending on intraoperative intestinal health and recovery until time to go home. Now, while we don’t wish this on any horse there are ways to mitigate costs. Platinum Performance has a simple product that paired with routine Veterinary care, (Float, Vaccinations, Fecal, Deworm), can give reimbursement up to $10,000.00, if your horse should ever have to undergo colic surgery.The vast majority of cases we see are due to impaction, which Platinum Performance products may help with reducing the incidence of colic. Overall we see this as one of the least expensive ways to insure your family horse member and provide confidence that should colic arise, there will be some compensation.
