Dr. Mike Fox, Dr. Marty Ivey and Dr. Steve Hurlbert were friendly competitors at Trinity Meadows Racetrack when they decided to join forces. Their partnership became Equine Sports Medicine and Surgery, which in the beginning was simply a supply and billing office in Weatherford, TX, for treatment of the equine athlete. Their vision became our current state-of-the-art equine medicine and surgery facility which opened its doors in September of 2001.
To be the premiere equine practice in the Southwest, and set the standard for quality veterinary care for the equine patients we serve.
We strive to provide exceptional and compassionate care for the clients and patients we serve. This mission is accomplished with facilities that include a cutting-edge critical care/intensive care unit, a neonatal intensive care unit, hospital with 6 exam rooms, a surgery suite with two induction/recovery stalls, hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber, and over eighty stalls for hospitalization. ESMS is made up of over 20 veterinarians including three board certified surgeons and a board certified internist. Our entire staff is committed to providing the best possible care for you and your equine athlete.
