Large Animal Veterinary Services in Los Lunas
Our doctors and staff at Los Lunas Animal Clinic have over four decades of large animal experience involved in nearly every aspect of veterinary medicine.
The clinic’s main large animal focus is equine medicine and surgery. We are one of the very few places in the southwest where nearly any equine surgery can be performed.
We also do ranch work on cattle which includes pregnancy checking, bull fertility, and miscellaneous care. All of our cattle work is done at your place since we are not equipped with a cattle chute at the clinic.
BSE – Breeding Soundness Exams
Using a subfertile bull may lead to longer calving intervals, a lower number of calves produced and increased costs from wintering over open females. All of these results cause serious economic loss to the cow-calf producer (Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs Factsheet 410/20 Beef Bull Fertility).
Los Lunas Animal Clinic doctors perform bull fertility exams at your ranch. We have an experienced team of professionals who can come to you and meet your fertility program needs. We customize your results to the breadth and depth required by your fertility program.
We use a Pulsator electroejaculator and a digital microscope so you can view each bull’s semen as we evaluate. We can help you make decisions on which bulls to continue as we test. More comprehensive written reports are available if desired.
Trich testing (for trichomoniasis) is also available and recommended at the time of evaluation.

Exams & Consultations
Regular checkups allow us to establish a baseline in your pet’s health and make us aware of any changes that may indicate future problems. We highly recommend regular exams. Often times health problems that go undetected can become more serious issues when left untreated, so checkups are important even when your pet appears healthy.
There are a variety of diseases which affect our pets and other animals. This makes proper vaccination vital in protecting them from the many types of illnesses they are susceptible to. It’s important to consult with us about the unique risks of living in our region. We will be happy to discuss the benefits of protecting your pet with vaccinations, as well as, provide you with information on the required vaccinations for your pet.
