About Us

Sport injuries occur at all levels of performance whether on a leisure trail ride, speed events or being able to run and jump. Injuries can include muscle strains, tendon/ligament injuries or arthritis pain.

Evaluations are performed from head to tail to monitor your horse’s comfort. This can include dentistry, lameness diagnostic and treatments, regenerative therapies such as High intensity Laser therapy, Shockwave, injectables, acupuncture and preventative maintenance programs.

But It's not enough to simply have access to various products. You have to know when, where, and why you are using them. We will explain and make recommendations on which treatment or therapy will be best for your horse.

After graduating from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine, her interest in equine sports medicine brought her out East and to Wellington, FL to work with United States and Canadian Olympic Veterinarians for Show Jumping and Eventing.  There she traveled nationally and internationally to care for FEI level athletes and as an FEI treating veterinarian at major competitions.

Dr. Horner is also certified as an equine acupuncturist through the Chi Institute to continue to offer the best services for her patients.

Dr. Gatz is a MN native and earned her DVM from the University of Minnesota in 2013. She began her career in ambulatory general practice in southeastern MN and western WI, prior to moving to Texas.

 

While in Texas, Dr. Gatz spent 2 years in private practice in the
Midland/Odessa area where she gained a wide variety of experience ranging from equine reproduction to emergency medicine. She eventually moved to Houston for a staff veterinarian position at the Houston SPCA. During her time at the HSPCA, she gained experience managing and re-feeding the emaciated equine, handling large scale cruelty cases involving equids, acting as a court witness, and disaster response. This is also where here professional interest in equine
dentistry blossomed. Upon her return to the North Star state, Dr. Gatz has worked in small animal urgent care while forming Gatz Veterinary Services, PLLC, a practice that provides dental care and acupuncture to horses in the area. Dr. Gatz is a member of the AAEP, sits on the
