Equine Medicine

Avon Animal Hospital is proud to offer an array of advanced medical procedures to our equine patients. All of our doctors have completed post-graduate training in equine medicine. Both Drs. Paul Johnston and Jeannine DeLuca completed their American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP) Equine Internal Medicine Residencies at Purdue University and Atlantic Veterinary College, respectively. Furthermore, Dr. Johnston is additionally boarded in Equine Reproduction. Our doctors have the knowledge and experience required to recognize and obtain a proper diagnosis and implement an appropriate treatment plan.

Our Equine team provides the following services:

  • Ophthalmology
  • Dermatology
  • Neurology
  • Chemotherapy
  • Upper Airway Endoscopy
  • Gastroscopy
  • Cystoscopy
  • Diagnostic Imaging
  • Regional Limb Perfusions
  • In-House and Referral Laboratory Testing

Due to COVID travel restrictions, we are currently able to collaborate virtually with specialists at the Atlantic Veterinary College and perform procedures that may otherwise be referred.
