Livestock shows are among the most popular and widely-recognized 4-H events in Oklahoma. Many times, youth participating in 4-H events will care for their animals for an extended period to ensure they are as healthy and comfortable as possible when competition begins. However, this can be tricky for some breeds of show animals depending on the current season and other factors that could negatively impact the animal. Our commitment to ensuring show animals remain happy and healthy has made us a popular service provider for show animal veterinary services.
We can treat a wide variety of show animals including:
Comprehensive Show Animal Veterinary Medicine
Advanced Care Veterinary Hospital has large animal veterinarians that can provide preventative care, nutritional advice, general care recommendations and much more for various show animals. While we do not offer on-site visits for barnyard pets or show animals currently, veterinary services are available at our facilities. We ask that all show animals remain loaded and the pet owner calls from their vehicle upon arrival. To ensure the best experience possible, please contact our team in advance to ensure we can provide services for your specific show animal breed.

Our hospital provides a variety of services designed to meet the unique needs of show animals. Although, show animal owners need to know what signs signify a problem may occur. Then bring their show animal in for a check-up to determine the underlying cause. Some of the services for show animals that we provide include:
Like other domesticated pets, show animals require specific vaccines based on their unique needs and environment. Our knowledgeable vets can help create and administer an individualized vaccination protocol designed to address the common viruses or bacteria that show animals may be subject to throughout their life.
Wellness Exams and Preventative Care
A proper preventative care plan for show animals requires semi-annual wellness exams to identify emerging health issues and treat them quickly. For some show animals, our veterinarians may also recommend annual bloodwork to screen for potential underlying problems and a semi-annual intestinal parasite exam.
Animal husbandry will often require day-to-day care and selective breeding to ensure the best outcome possible. As a tradition rooted in agricultural livestock, the need for husbandry services among show animals is immense. Our experience and dedication make us the perfect partner whenever you need these specialized services for your show animals.
Many show animals are larger than the average domesticated pet and require specific nutritional plans to be “show-ready.” While many show animals are raised in traditional environments, it is still vital to ensure they are well-nourished, healthy and comfortable at all times. Advanced Care can help simplify these requirements.
