We love working with Bend Equine! Whether it’s foaling season, general annual care, or an equine emergency, the veterinary team and staff are attentive, knowledgeable, and kind. Their expertise and state-of-the-art clinic and equipment are huge assets to our ranch and the entire community. We always feel confident that our horses are in good hands whether at the clinic or here on the ranch, and we can always count on well-researched expert advice and care.
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.
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.
