      TO THOSE REGISTERING FOR MEMBERSHIP ON UJ   01/06/2018

      To the Guests who have decided to register for Membership. PLEASE add more info than just  "hunting" or "Upland hunting" or "birds" or "outdoors" or similar nebulous terms in the required INTERESTS field. Despite this Boards strong spam filtering it is not bullet proof, so Spam registrations do sneak through. I need an inkling that you are a warm blooded human being not a Spam Bot tagging onto key words. Thank you.

NEW Vets By State Topic

Recommended Posts

Brad Eden

We had a Vet By State Topic pinned to this forum at one time. I think I may have removed it since the links on it kept going bad.

This is a good time of year to create a new Topic given many of us will be traveling away from our regular vets to bird hunt.

Please feel free to post any links to websites listing vets or info on good vets in your area that might be a resource for UJ Members.

Thanks.

My vet is Ridge Runner Vet Services in Winterport, ME., Rachel Emerson DVM. 207.223.2596, www.ridgerunnervet.com. This would be the Central/Coast/Mid Maine area.

She is very good and understands the unique needs of bird hunting dogs. She did the surgery on Cash to remove the imbedded quills in his chest and made small incisions with staples so we could salvage some of his first hunting season. She also worked to try and save Jake.

Central ND has a good one at Missouri Valley Vet Clinic in Bismarck. Their speciality is dogs and the vets have their own hunting dogs.

For anyone visiting Vermont to hunt, this may be a little ways away from most hunting areas, but it's a small state...

Anyway, Ryan Canales is a guy I met in the bird cover behind my house...I heard the bell on his setter Jack, who was obviously from a coverdog breeding.  He's a hunter, bird dog owner and a real person, not a "big city" vet who has never dealt with working dogs.  I've been using another vet for a number of years, but am strongly considering switching over.  Ryan just opened his own practice in Williston village (about 20 minutes east of Burlington).

Also in Colorado I would highly recommend Dr. Hoffman at the Piney Creek Veterinary Clinic in Centennial 80015 if your in that area.

 We brought our dogs there for years.

His office is across the road from this pic below of the Cherry Creek State Park.

If you happen to be in central NH around the Lakes Region, I would recommend:

Noreast Veterinary Association

5 Wareing Road (On Route 106)

Belmont, NH 03220‎

(603) 267-7007

Our family has used them for our pets for over 25 years. Dr. Tierney always likes to know how the dogs are doing in the woods and when they were pups he would offer training advice to me.

For anyone needing a vet in Northeast Oregon, I highly recommend Dr. Ursula Kelly at La Grande Small Animal Clinic. She has bird dog wallpaper in the exam rooms. Seriously though, she has been really good to me. She doesn't hesitate to refer to specialists and I've never felt ripped off.

1807 Cove Avenue, La Grande, OR 97850

(541) 963-8002

For Willamette Valley vet needs the Oregon State University Teaching Hospital is top notch. Sam was a blood donor and did underwater treadmill and other rehab demonstration there.

In the southern part of Albuquerque is Deanza Small Animal Clinic.  I have always like Dr. Sharp; she is always helpful and is quite popular with dog owners.

7601 Isleta Blvd. SW, Albuquerque, NM 87105. 1 505 873 0319.

Though I dont know why anyone would be in Southernmost Ill to hunt anything save perhaps some waterfowl I can strongly suggest two vet practices.  

1. Central Hospital for Animals in Marion and another office in Harrisburg.  Dr. Gorden Rhine (sp. and I am embarassed at that) is now retired (bird dog guy and an up and comming Sporting Clays shooter) but he has staffed his operations with noteworthy vets.  The Harrisburg office is run by a GSP gal who knows her stuff.

2.  Meller and James in Vienna and main office in Anna.  Their staff of vets cover the the whole deal from cows and horses on down and really care about you and you dog(s)

I've been going to Forest Lake Veterinary Hospital (Forest Lake, MN) for almost 25 years.  I highly recommend Dr. Tom Randall, he's compassionate, competively priced, and he won't snow you.

This is turning into a very resourceful Topic which I will pin soon. Thanks Pa'tridge Hunters for the info on the emergency clinic in Brewer, ME. I was gonna add that given I have taken a few emergency trips there in the past after my regular vets office was closed. :(
