Large Animal Services

Field Service

We offer a wide range of primary health and preventive care services to help keep your livestock healthy and productive. Our team will give your animal or herd a thorough checkup and ensure that all preventive health measures are up-to-date.

Specialized Services

In addition to routine veterinary care and farm visits,

Highview Animal Clinic provides a variety of clinical and specialized services for large animals including internal medicine, medical imaging, reproduction, surgery, and ophthalmology, among others.

After Hours and Emergency Care

Coggins and Export

Rodeo stock, performance horses and other equines travelling to the U.S. need Coggins testing for Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA) and export documents. Many competitions, sales and events also require a current negative Coggins as the disease is spread through the blood of infected animals by biting insects who then carry the disease from horse to horse.

Highview Animal Clinic offers this testing and the necessary export documentation. We’ll be happy to send the papers in or you can take them for in-person delivery.

For more information or to schedule a testing appointment for your horse, call us at 403-652-1300.


At Highview Animal Clinic, we provide experienced surgical castration services.

In addition to being the safest and most humane method of castration, the surgical option gives you the assurance that both testicles were removed completely. Our veterinarians will ensure that your animal is well cared for throughout the procedure and provide post-operative monitoring and care instruction as needed.

Have questions about castration services or want to schedule an appointment for an animal? Call us at 403-652-1300.

Herd Health and Out Calls

Getting livestock to the vet can be difficult, time-consuming, and in some cases, impossible. That’s why Highview Animal Clinic offers out call service, so your animals can get the care they need. We can come to you to provide veterinary services for small animals, cattle, horses, sheep, goats, alpacas, and lamas.

Out call services are by appointment, and we can accommodate most days and times. To schedule a visit, call us at 403-652-1300.

Calf Scour Ward

Calf scours (diarrhea) is a common problem with neonatal cattle that can quickly become life-threatening due to rapid dehydration. Viruses, parasites, and bacteria are the most common causes, making this condition very contagious and necessitating the isolation of affected animals.

At Highview Animal Clinic, we can provide hydration and treatment in a dedicated ward that’s kept warm and dry for recuperating calves.

Questions about sick animals or our calf scour ward? Call us at 403-652-1300.

Semen Testing

About 20% of bulls tested are sub-fertile—and as a livestock owner, that could cost you serious money. At Highview Animal Clinic, we can help you determine breeding soundness with bull semen testing, which includes:

- Rectal exam
- Testicular palpation
- Scrotal circumference assessment
- Electroejaculation and assessment of semen structure

If you have questions or want to set up testing for an animal, please give us a call at 403-652-1300.

Pregnancy Testing

We understand that reproductive ability and efficiency is important to you as a livestock owner. At Highview Animal Clinic, we can help you determine pregnancy status early on to ensure the health of the mother and offspring as well as effective economic management of your herd.

We offer both ultrasound and manual testing for cattle, and ultrasound pregnancy testing for horses, sheep, and goats.

In-House Pens and Chute

Our facilities feature a headgate and squeeze that can be used for C-section deliveries and semen testing. We also have pens to hold multiple animals.

For horses, we utilize a basic equine stock for exams, floating teeth, and treating cuts and other injuries.

No matter the procedure, your animal will be given the highest-quality, most experienced care possible.
