Healing Springs Animal Hospital
Large Animal Veterinarian Service

Our clinic (Healing Springs Animal Hospital) provides these large animal veterinarian services:

Llamas & Alpacas

Healing Springs provides a full range of large animal veterinarian services for llamas & alpacas. This includes wellness, reproduction, injury care, sick care, and 24/7 emergency care. We can visit your farm by appointment in our fully equipped mobile veterinarian SUV, you can visit our clinic, and/or we can board your llamas and alpacas while receiving treatment.

While all Healing Springs large animal veterinarians are happy to provide excellent care to your llamas and alpacas, camelid medicine is a particular passion of Dr. Heather Jenkins. Dr. Jenkins has owned llamas, has served as the primary veterinarian for multiple llama and alpaca farms, and has completed significant post graduate work in camelid medicine. Recently, Dr. Jenkins volunteered at an alpaca research station high in the mountains of Peru. The research station is gathering information to develop protocols for the care of pregnant and newborn alpacas. In Peru, Dr. Jenkins had the opportunity to do more camelid reproductive work than most American large animal veteterinarians do in a lifetime.

To talk to Dr. Jenkins or schedule a visit, call (276) 236-5103.

Horse Breeding

Our clinic (Healing Springs Animal Hospital) also performs horse breeding services. This can include artificial insemination (chilled or frozen), palpation, breeding soundness exams, and delivery. We can visit your farm in our mobile veterinarian SUV, or you can board your horse in our affiliated stables.
