We are dedicated to providing the highest level of care to our patients. This includes staff specialists in both surgery and internal medicine who have pursued advanced training and can offer the most current and effective diagnostics and treatments.

BEMC opened in 1998, following a fourteen month construction phase that incorporated design features from veterinary hospitals and universities across the country.

Our 7,000 square foot climate-controlled equine hospital contains a large equine treatment area, a spacious surgery suite, heavily padded induction and recovery rooms, a clinical laboratory with hematology machines and a microbiology laboratory, a complete pharmacy and a reproduction laboratory.

Bend Equine Patient
of the Month



Our Bend Equine Patient of the Month is from our Small Animal Division!  His name is Oscar and he is an 8 month old Labrador Guide Dog in training. Three days prior to presentation, he got into an equine vitamin and mineral supplement and ate an unknown amount of concentrated copper, zinc and selenium. On presentation to our clinic, he had an engorged abdomen, was feeling quite lethargic, and had intermittent vomiting and diarrhea as well as drinking/urinating excessively. Blood work revealed that he was having mild kidney trouble and x-rays showed that his stomach was HUGELY engorged with an unknown food material. We suspect that his kidney disease was related to a mild toxicity from the mineral ingestion and that he also managed to get into something else the morning of presentation which was causing his engorged stomach. This boy is as sweet as they come but he is a Hoover vacuum cleaner when it comes to food/food-like substances!
Oscar spent the day in our Small Animal Division on fluids and monitoring. The following day, he came back for a recheck and his kidneys were much better, his abdomen no longer looked like he swallowed a basketball and he was back to his normal self. If you can believe it, he lost 9 POUNDS in 12 hours by passing all of this material through his stomach! His family is getting to know his "tendencies" so hopefully this handsome boy will stay out of trouble in the future!
