Large Animal FAQs

 We prefer to see patients by appointment to allow ample time for all patients and scheduled surgical procedures. Emergency cases may take precedence over regularly scheduled appointments, so an occasional appointment delay is inevitable. Please call us or use the email appointment form on our website to schedule your appointment.

Please call our equine receptionist to schedule an appointment for your horse(s) by calling (410) 822-8505 and asking to speak with the equine receptionist. You may also email us at equine@vmceaston.com. Please allow 48 hours for a response. For routine appointments or questions include owner’s name, horse(s) name, where they are stabled, and nature of visit.

 If you need to change or cancel your appointment, please call us at (410) 822-8505 or e-mail us at equine@vmceaston.com. We request the courtesy of at least 48 hours’ notice for cancellations so that we may schedule another patient in your place.

We require full payment at the time that services are rendered. For your convenience, we accept cash, check, Visa, American Express, Discover, MasterCard, Debit, and Care Credit. Our credit card merchant requires an original signature by the cardholder on all credit transactions. If your animal needs to be brought in by a friend or family member, please make sure that you have established a method of payment.
