Our purpose-built facilities were made with the large animal in mind and have the ability to provide the best care for the most sensitive and complicated cases. Our facilities are equipped with specialized divided stalls for mare and foal, special colic facilities and stalls for extended stays, and climate control for extreme weather conditions or when needed for the patient.

UF Large Animal Hospital
Equine Performance Laboratory
The UF Veterinary Hospitals MRI unit is a Toshiba Titan, ultra-wide bore, high-field 1.5 Tesla magnet. It is the largest gantry on a short-bore MRI manufactured to date. Our board-certified veterinary radiologists provide highly detailed images of damage in bone and soft tissue with greater precision than any other imaging modality.
Reception & Waiting Area
The UF equine and large animal reproduction facilities feature a hydraulic height-adjustable phantom mare, full-service laboratory, USDA-approved semen collection & distribution center, liquid nitrogen semen storage and basic & intensive care facilities for foaling and high-risk pregnancies.
The large animal isolation facilities can accommodate any patient. Special protocols are required for staff and faculty in our isolation facilities and throughout our hospital based on our bio-security program. As with all stalls at UF, the stalls in this facility have windows because we believe that attitude plays a key role in healing and the outside view is beneficial.
All stalls in the UF equine and large animal internal medicine and neonatal foal unit contain dividers to allow a mare to be with her foal while one is being treated. The wing also houses a padded stall with a hoist for animals that are neurologically compromised and a wildlife stall for patients too large to be housed in small animal.
The UF stallion facilities are located next to the reproduction facilities for the most efficient care and examinations. UF provides advanced stallion evaluations to prevent problems from happening during breeding and to find problems that arise. Our board certified reproduction veterinarians specialize in diagnosing and treating reproductive issues and working to solve behavior problems.
