We all hate to get sidetracked from what we love doing- whether that be roping or racing, time out is not part of the plan. As competitors themselves, Dr. Dorris knows that finding out what is wrong is more important than just being able to inject a bunch of joints on your horse. We work to get an answer and then tailor a treatment program just for that problem. Equipped with trained eyes and hands, high-tech imaging such as thermography, computed radiology and ultrasound and full service in house lab work, SEQSM is adept at pinpointing subtle problems and getting your horse onto the road to recovery.

Dentistry is a key part of keeping your horse healthy and sound and SEQSM excels at providing a range of equine dental services including annual floats, wolf teeth extractions, cap removals, managing malalignments and malocclusions and even TMJ injections.
A busy year on the road means constant exposure to viruses, bacteria, and parasites that can put your horse under the weather and out of the competition. SEQSM provides a full range of vaccinations that are tailored to your needs along with assisting you in developing a parasite control program.
