Pioneer Equine Hospital is located in California's central valley near Oakdale, CA. We are nestled between the foothills of the Sierra Mountains and the valley's vast agricultural landscape. Pioneer Equine Hospital opened its doors in 1973, when two veterinarians a vision to form the premier equine veterinary clinic in the area. Drs. Britton and Black built one of the most recognized equine hospitals in the country for their foremost work in equine surgery and lameness. Since its opening, the doctors and staff have been successful in not only excelling in equine patient care but more importantly creating an atmosphere that welcomes a diverse population of equine disciplines to Pioneer Equine Hospital.The clinic has since evolved to ten veterinarians and a newly constructed 22,000 square foot full service equine hospital that offers the most advanced lameness, surgical, and diagnostic imaging on the west coast. There are two spacious surgical suites as well as an extensive covered lameness evaluation area. Our large exam rooms and stalls optimize patient comfort and client ease. Not to mention, we have just installed the only high field equine MRI in Northern California. Our goal remains to provide the utmost and advanced equine medical technology, diagnosis, therapy and care to our patients and their owners.
