We are dedicated to providing the highest level of care to our patients. This includes staff specialists in both surgery and internal medicine who have pursued advanced training and can offer the most current and effective diagnostics and treatments.

BEMC opened in 1998, following a fourteen month construction phase that incorporated design features from veterinary hospitals and universities across the country.

Our 7,000 square foot climate-controlled equine hospital contains a large equine treatment area, a spacious surgery suite, heavily padded induction and recovery rooms, a clinical laboratory with hematology machines and a microbiology laboratory, a complete pharmacy and a reproduction laboratory.

Bend Equine Patient
of the Month

Odie Almgren

Odie is our May Patient of the Month!  He presented to BEMC after his owner noticed him displaying signs of colic. After examination, he was diagnosed with a large colon impaction.  Due to previous history of gastric ulcerations, a gastroscopy was also performed and Odie was found to have Grade 1 gastric ulcerations in his stomach.  He was treated at the clinic with IV fluid therapy, pain medications, oral medications to help resolve his impaction, and gastrogard to treat his ulcerations.  Acupuncture was also used to help decrease abdominal pain and stimulate gastrointestinal motility. Odie's colic was complicated by a large colon displacement during his stay.  We were concerned that Odie may have to go to colic surgery to resolve his abdominal discomfort (impaction and displacement), but he was able to correct himself without surgery.  He had a lengthy stay at the clinic, but we are happy to report that Odie is home and doing well!
