Director of Operations, Coyote Rock Ranch

I’ve been a BEMC client since 2008 and couldn’t be happier with their service. From vet techs to veterinarians to admin staff, I’ve always received wonderful care. They’re communicative, honest, and willing to discuss all aspects of treatment to help with decision-making. They’ve been there in emergencies and brought my beloved equids through serious illnesses. They bred my mare, helping tirelessly throughout the pregnancy. And they’ve helped me make important end-of-life decisions with compassion and reassurance. Whether it’s regular care or pop-up issues, I know that the folks at BEMC are always there for my herd, and for me. It’s comforting to have the support of a clinic like BEMC.

Horse Owner

Bend Equine has been our veterinary team since the start of our sanctuary, and we literally could not do what we do without them. Dr. Findley and the team are outstanding in their knowledge and offer the highest level of care. We are so grateful for all hundreds of ranch calls they’ve made over the years at often difficult times. Being a rescue we regularly take in the worst equine cases and all of them come back to amazing health under Bend Equine’s care and guidance.

This week’s warming weather is a reminder that Summer Solstice (June 21) is around the corner! The longer days mean our Central Oregon horses should almost be done trading in their winter fuzzies for sleek summer coats. But what if your horse isn’t shedding normally?...
