Claresholm Vet Services was established in 1971 by Doc Al Martin, mainly for the reason of having some place to do his numerous cattle c-sections. The clinic was then renovated in 2000 to add a larger reception area, another exam room and some office space. The facility now expands over 2750 square feet. Claresholm Vet Services is a full service mixed animal practice with approximately 60% small animal and 40% large animal clientele. The practice area is the greater Claresholm and surrounding communities, and is bounded loosely by Nobleford and Champion to the east, Ft. McLeod to the south, Cayley to the north, and Rockies and Hwy 22 to the west.
On the small animal side of the clinic, there are two exam rooms, a surgery suite with a Surgical and Therapy Laser, a full service lab, and a radiology suite. On the large animal side, there is an area for bovine and equine examinations, with an indoor chute system for our bovine patients and a set of equine stocks. Just outside the practice, there are 2 horse stalls, and an additional chute system for cattle, all under one roof. As well, the facility has an isolation ward, where highly infectious diseases can be better controlled.
We are pleased to be associated with the University of Calgary Faculty of Veterinary Medicine as part of their Distributed Veterinary Learning Community. Each year we host students for 4 week rotations, where they are able to gain valuable hands-on clinical, diagnostic and professional experience in our clinic.
