Rehabilitation & Layup

Crystal's American Idol

The advanced facilities at Aurora Farms allow us to custom tailor treatment for horses in recovery from injury, illness, or surgery.  We work hand-in-hand with equine hospitals and veterinarians to serve post-surgical patients and offer long-term care for all types of injuries.

Getting Ready to X-Ray

State-of-the-art Diagnostic Lab

Having our on-site equine diagnostic lab available at all times provides us with enormous capabilities and advantages in rehabilitation. We are able to run detailed tests in-house and get rapid results, including on weekends and holidays. This quick turnaround eliminates days of waiting on an outside lab, and allows us to put those lab results to work immediately, to direct the course of treatment and speed recovery.

HIPAA for Horses

Aurora Farms was created with two simple missions:  provide exceptional care for horses and provide peace of mind for their owners.  For these reasons, we maintain absolute patient confidentiality, or what we call HIPAA for Horses.  While being cared for in our rehabilitation center, no information on a horse’s identity, ownership, health status, medical history, or treatment will be made available to anyone other than the owner or individuals approved by the owner.
