Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Dr. Strain came out late on a Saturday night and spent a considerable amount of time working on my senior Standardbred who may have been one of the most difficult cases of choke Dr. Strain has came up against. He arrived ASAP after our call and Tez wouldn't still be standing had it not been for Dr. Strain. He had to work in low light conditions and showed great compassion towards my horse as things got messy. I highly recommend Strain Equine Services. I can't believe how reasonable the cost of this emergency call was."
    Rachel S. W.
  • "For the last 2 years, we have used Strain Equine. Every visit, whether a farm call or a visit there at the site, I grow more and more appreciative of Dr Johnson and the staff. They explain what they are doing to my girl and why they are doing it. They explain what to expect and that means so much. If not for their help and attention to details, our situation would be a lot different today. Dr Brook treats all the horses and horse owners the same They ALL listen, show kindness and compassion. Thank you to the whole staff for being so great at what you do, for your kindness and for your compassion."
