Welcome to Heartland Equine Health Center

Since 1983, we have been providing veterinary care for horses. In March 2010, we began offering in-hospital services at our clinic location in Curran, Illinois. Our well-established mobile practice provides preventative care, emergency services, and healthcare needs such as surgery, dentistry, reproductive care, pre-purchase exams and lameness evaluations to Springfield and the surrounding communities. The clinic enables us to offer these services to horse owners outside of our ambulatory practice area, and provide more in-depth diagnostics, treatments and hospitalization.

We strive to offer our clients high quality medical and surgical services at a reasonable price while emphasizing outstanding service and client communication.
