Equine & Farm Animals

Valley Veterinary Associates offers exceptional farm animal care and veterinarian services to the Oneonta, NY area. Our veterinarians have over 50 years of experience in both bovine and equine care.

Our hospital has dedicated 1200 square feet to equine and farm animals.

With an assortment of diagnostic tools, we are able to assess, diagnose, and successfully treat our patients.

  • Endoscope: used to visualize problems in the pharynx, larynx, trachea, esophagus, and stomach. At the back end the endoscope can assess the urethra, vagina, uterus as well as bladder and colon.
  • Ultrasound: used externally and internally to capture images of the thorax, abdomen, muscle, tendons, and any suspicious swelling.  Also utilized to safely guide biopsy tools into areas that need tissue sampling.
  • Digital Radiographs: used to enhance subtle changes in both orthopedic and soft tissue problems.  Images can be enhanced as well as sent electronically to specialists for second opinions.
  • Blood Analysis Machines: allow for accurate results in a timely manner.  This aids in a rapid diagnosis and monitored response to treatment.
