PLEASE EXCUSE OUR 'UNDER CONSTRUCTION' APPEARANCE!
As you can see, SLREH is bustling with activity. We are excited to announce that we have taken the first step of a large scale renovation and development project. The hospital was first developed in the 1970's and is in need of a facelift; and we are outgrowing the space at an incredible rate thanks to the support of our incredible clients. As such, we are looking to renovate and expand, bringing you and your horses the state of the art facility that parallels the high quality medicine and care you have all come to expect here at SLREH. We are starting with an upgrade to our ICU facility, followed by development of a new isolation facility, new orthopedic and imaging building, and upgraded sports medicine complex. This transition is going to take time, performed in phases, and we have strategically planned it so as not to disrupt daily flow or patient care at the hospital.
We ask that you check in at the office when you arrive, and be patient with the construction sites and restricted areas that you see around you. We promise, it is most certainly going to be worth it!

"As we work to qualify for the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto for Dressage, I like to use acupuncture roughly every two weeks on the boys I ride (Landor and Fine & Smart) and train (Treffer and Di Scansano, rider Wendy Christoff). They're being ridden about 5-6 times a week and I can tell an immediate difference after our acupuncture session. Under saddle they move better, they're looser to ride, and they take less time to warm up. It's a part of my routine to physically feel their muscles before and after rides, and I love that I can literally feel relief in their muscles after acupuncture. I use Dr. Korin Potenza of San Luis Rey Equine Hospital because of her thoroughness and the attention she gives to each horses' comfort and health."

"Thank you to Dr. Huggons and the whole SLREH team for taking care of the chip in Cleo's left hind fetlock a few months ago. She received amazing care and is now back under saddle! Great facility and great people who truly care about each horse as if it were their own!"
"Thank you for your continued excellence. I always appreciate the time and effort everyone there puts in with my horses."
"Thank you for saving my horse, my friend."
"I am so grateful that my equine vet recommended Dr. Huggons when my horse, Dudley, experienced a strangulating lipoma. Dr. Huggons saved Dudley's life. San Luis Rey Equine Hospital is a very clean and organized facility. Dudley was at SLREH for 14 days. I visited him 10 of the 14 days. His stall was always immaculate and so was he. The technicians, staff, and interns were wonderful and so considerate. Dr. Huggons called me every morning with an update on Dudley's condition.
The 13th of September will be the 3rd anniversary of Dudley's surgery. He is doing great. Some of my friends can not believe that he looks so good and is completely normal. He does look great for a 22-year old.
Thank you Dr. Huggons and everyone at San Luis Rey Equine Hospital."
"I won't send my horse anywhere else in the future! I felt confident that he was getting the best medical care possible and always had great communication with the doctors and staff. I have since received two follow up calls from Dr. Potenza herself which I really appreciated."
"Your staff as well as the consultants from the Eye Clinic for Animals did an absolutely outstanding job for our colt. This prevented the certain loss of his eye and helped to assure that he will mature to be the outstanding show horse he has promised to be since birth. Thank you so much!"
"King and I want thank Korin and her team for the care to the snake bit at Kings heal bulb. He is feeling so much better and it is healing nicely. We will be back sorting cows and running down the trail soon!"
