Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I would like to welcome you to Rocky Mountain Equine Hospital, PC, the new parent company of Sheridan Equine Hospital, Cody Equine Hospital, and our new facility in Billings, Montana. The new facility is located at White Aspen Ranch, Billing’s premier equestrian facility. All three locations are fully staffed and equipped with the most advanced digital imaging from Sound technologies, Bio Sound Digital ultrasound, full service broodmare capabilities, and complete laboratory facilities including the use of all stem cell, PRP, and IRAP systems. Our Sheridan facility will continue to serve as our principle referral surgery center and stallion station. Our state of the art surgical center provides surgical services including colic and all routine abdominal procedures, laparoscopy, advanced operative arthroscopy, surgical arthrodesis, fracture repair using all AO/ASIF procedures and implants, upper airway surgery, and spinal interbody fusion. We continue to be world leaders in the development of prosthetic devices for the most severely injured equine patients. We anticipate the addition of Hallmarq standing MRI in late 2014. Our Sheridan breeding facility accommodates advanced stallion, broodmare, and neonatal care, embryo transfer and semen freezing and transport. Our stallion roster for 2014 includes AQHA Stallions Ain’tSeenNothinYet (Frenchmans Guy x Smart N Famous x Dash Ta Fame), Frenchmans Biankus (Frenchmans Guy x Kay Tee Bar x Biankus ), and Perkolatin (Dash For Perks x By Yawl x Dash For Cash). We are very pleased to add Dr. Alex Parkes to our staff. It is only because of your continued support and trust as your referral center that we have continued to grow and can now serve you in our third location. I am grateful and blessed to have been able to help your horses and your clients. It is truly a privilege to be part of your case management team. We look forward to this new and exciting chapter.

Sincerely yours,

Ted P. Vlahos DVM, MS, Diplomate ABVP
