The MERC center offers a wide variety of medical care, post-surgical care and rehabilitative therapy, hydrotherapy and conditioning services. Our experienced staff is here to help your horse recover from illness, injury or surgery as quickly and happily as possible. Your horse’s physical and mental well-being is our greatest concern.
The rehabilitation and conditioning center has just been completed. Midwest Equine Rehabilitation and Conditioning (MERC) Center offers the latest in accelerated conditioning and injury rehabilitation. This complex houses state of the art therapy equipment, stalls with small paddocks attached, and treatment areas.
Rehabilitation and conditioning services are supervised by the horse’s veterinarian. The specific therapies recommended by the veterinarian will be carried out by the MERC team headed by Anne Thornbury. We will be happy to put an appropriate “team” together for any horses staying with us that do not have their own personal veterinarian available. The MERC staff will handle the scheduling of appointments, daily nursing care, physical therapy and conditioning exercises.
Outpatient services are available as well. Owners and trainers are welcome to ship their horses to the MERC center for therapies recommended by their veterinarian.
