If you’re looking for a comprehensive equine veterinarian in central Pennsylvania, you will be pleased to discover that we offer exceptional equine services at two separate locations. Dr. Russel LaPierre is our team’s experienced health care provider for horses and offers his services as both a Lewistown veterinarian and Mifflintown veterinarian. As a certified horse acupuncturist and equine dental service provider, Dr. LaPierre offers an array of services to keep your animal in good health.
Both our primary office and our satellite location are equipped to handle equine patients. We boast an in-house lab, digital x-rays and modern diagnostic techniques to asses your animal’s condition quickly. We can perform most surgeries on-site in addition to providing wellness examinations and administering annual vaccinations. However, Dr. LaPierre provides two unique services that you’ll be hard pressed to find at any other veterinarian in Lewistown or Mifflintown: equine dentistry and equine acupuncture services.
Dental examinations are equally important to animals and humans, as many oral diseases and conditions can cause an array of symptoms and complications in the body such as infections and pain. Dental burrs, hooks on molars for bitting, gum disease and gingivitis are common in horses and require immediate treatment. Our veterinarian in Mifflintown can assist with these conditions in addition to abscessed and fractured teeth, dental restoration and bite issues.
Equine acupuncture works to heal and alleviate pain in the body in the same fashion as humans. Acupuncture has been shown effective in reducing pain and inflammation, increasing blood circulation and promoting muscle relaxation. It can also help balance hormones in aging horses and those looking to breed. These holistic healing sessions are virtually painless, and can help with an array of conditions and ailments.
Contact our veterinarian in Lewistown at Pleasant View Veterinary Clinic at 717-248-4703 or call our satellite location, Juniata Veterinary Clinic at 717-436-9790 to reach our veterinarian in Mifflintown to schedule an appointment for your equine friends.
