Impressive care and treatment through state-of-the-art facilities


The Four Sixes offers a full range of equine veterinary services at its modern, state-of-the-art medical facilities located at the main headquarters just west of Guthrie. Each year, more than 1,400-1,500 mares are bred from ranch, performance and racing Quarter Horse disciplines, while maintaining a 95% conception rate.

Medical Facilities


The Four Sixes’ modern medical facilities include a laboratory, surgery room, foaling boxes, recovery stalls, breeding area, and more. State-of-the-art equipment includes, but is not limited to, digital x-ray, ultrasound, hematology and blood chemistry machine, semen analyzer, and computerized record keeping with breeding and hospital module.

Internal & General Medicine


In addition to the on-staff veterinarian, two full-time veterinary interns are employed. Memberships are maintained in both the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) and the American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP). Ongoing, continuing education is sought at all times in order to remain up-to-date on the latest advances in equine veterinary medicine. Because of the high number of horses living on-site, the veterinary staff has extensive experience with a wide variety of diseases and conditions—both pediatric and adult.

Lameness


Full work-ups are available for evaluating lamenesses and providing proper treatment, including leg wound care. In addition to digital x-ray capabilities, our facilities allow for appropriate evaluation even in inclement weather. With a large horse population on site, we have “seen it all” regarding lamenesses and welcome outside cases.

Imaging


Our digital x-ray and ultrasonography capabilities are second to none, ensuring the best results for diagnosis and prognosis in most cases. Cases ranging from reproductive to medical benefit from both our modern equipment and wide-ranging experience.

Dentistry


Routine dental maintenance is performed on all resident horses, ensuring the benefits from comfortable feed consumption, and therefore optimal nutritional intake. Under veterinary supervision, both power equipment and hand tools are available for use, depending upon each individual case, and sedatives are properly administered when needed. Dental care is available to outside horses by appointment.

Preventive Care


The Four Sixes is dedicated to good preventive care for its horses, increasing the chances that individuals remain healthy and productive throughout their lives. Preventive care services include: regular vaccinations, timely deworming, good nutrition, safe housing and proper farrier and foot care. These services and consultations in those areas also are available to outside clients.
