I have used Royalton Equine and Dr. Jeanne Best for 20+ years. She and her associates have always been knowledgeable, professional and responsive. Their diagnoses and treatments are right-on but they are also very honest with difficult cases, requesting second opinions if necessary. Their new clinic is a godsend: for example, a step-down unit for a horse coming out of the hospital at Cornell but still requiring treatments that would be difficult or impossible to do in your home barn. And finally, they are compassionate and supportive if your animal passes. Five stars all the way! E.A.D., MD

Highly recommend! Dr. Best has been treating my mare and she's been fantastic. She's professional, kind, and very responsive to calls and emails. She clearly cares about her patients and I completely trust her judgment when it comes to the health of my girl! Everyone I've interacted with from their practice has been a pleasure to work with. Our area is very lucky to be serviced by such knowledgeable professionals. Thank you for all you do!

Dr. Best took on a horrific dental problem that other so called equine dentists said could not be corrected without surgery. After 2 visits our horse is doing so much better. He is gaining weight, his attitude has improved and he is now more energetic. I highly recommend Dr. Best for all your equine needs.

What is considered and emergency?

You know your horse. When something is wrong, please do these things:

  • *Assess the area- is he eating/drinking/passing normal amounts of manure? Drinking?
  • *Check his temperature- a digital thermometer from the drug store is perfect. Normal is 99-100.5
  • *Take vital signs- heartrate should be under 42, respiratory rate usually under 20.

When you have this information call us! We will discuss the situation with you and advise on how to continue. We will triage your situation.

Does it need an appointment?

Does it need to be seen the same day? Does it need to be seen ASAP?

Please be prepared to trailer your horse in the event of an emergency. If you have a trailer, keep it current and accessible. If you don’t, line up a few friends that you can call to assist. Many emergencies will do better and be easier to manage at the hospital especially when we are running more that one emergency and traveling all over western New York.

What phone number do I use?

Always call the office voicemail-(716) 629-8384. Leave a message there and follow the instructions if you have an urgent problem.

We ask you to do this because sometimes cell phones don’t work and we can check this number throughout the day for messages.

The emergency phone is (716) 800-5279 and it goes to the veterinarian on call. Do not text in emergencies.

What about texting?

We don’t generally respond to texts- unless we have directed you to text us in certain  situations.

Can I email you?

You can, at drbest@besthorsevet.com but we strongly encourage you to also CALL the office! We don’t get to emails as frequently as we do the phone, but it is a way to send us pictures or copies of paperwork.
