Welcome to OWV

Welcome to the One Woman Equine Veterinary Services (OWV) main website. OWV provides care for pleasure horses, including general medicine, lameness, colic, emergencies, vaccination, dentistry, and castration. We also conduct pre-purchase exams and provide general reproductive services.


The main purpose of this site is to enhance education and information transfer with OWV clients, including secure access to x-ray images and photos. We will periodically post items of interest to our clients, including announcements of events or developments in horse medicine. We maintain a set of open-access client education pages, which may be of general interest to all horse owners.
