Cross Country Veterinary Service

With the impending hurricane, please take a moment to review these tips!

Thank you for your interest in Cross Country Veterinary Service.  Established in 1993, we are a large animal ambulatory veterinary clinic that is dedicated to providing high quality medicine and superior customer service.  Primarily an equine focused practice, we offer extensive veterinary services for all ages, breeds, and disciplines, from the show jumper to the backyard pony.  We also treat llamas, alpacas, goats, and sheep.

Chew on This - Proper dental care is vital to your horse's overall health. Cross Country Veterinary Service supports the American Association of Equine Practitioners' (AAEP) 2008 campaign to promote the need for all horses to receive a thorough oral examination at least once a year. Click the Chew on This link for more information.

Pre-Purchase Examination - Are you looking to buy a horse?  Don't sign that check until you have the horse evaluated by a veterinarian.  Cross Country Veterinary Service will custom-tailor a pre-purchase exam specific to your needs. For details, call us or visit www.bayerequineconnection.com/main/ownership_finances/exam.cfm

Technical Large Animal Rescue Class - This specific kind of training, equipment, and expertise is brought together to allow first responders (police, EMTís, paramedics, firemen, etc.) to work with non-traditional first responders (veterinarians, veterinary staff). Dates in November are available. Please contact XCV at 413-283-6610 for details.

Cross Country Veterinary Service is located in Palmer, Massachusetts.  Dr. Bonnie Smith and her able staff are available to provide services to those in Massachusetts and Connecticut, however it is not unusual for us to travel considerably further for Pre-Purchase exams or Dentistry. Our focus entails Sports Medicine, Lameness issues, Dentistry, Pre-Purchase Exams, Nutrition, and Yearly Vaccinations with Wellness Exams focusing on the whole horse.

Your time is valuable.  We can help save your time by providing quality care at your farm.  Rather than taking the day off to trailer your horse to a hospital, we will come to your horse or other farm animal.  Our hospital quality ultrasound and radiology equipment brings advanced medicine to you.  Ultrasound aids in non-invasive diagnostics of cardiac, abdominal, lameness and eye diseases.   

We strive to provide the best service to our clients and patients. Please browse our site and call or email us with any questions or suggestions you may have.  We look forward to meeting you and your equine friend!
