About Us

Our History

Owned and operated by Dr. Charlene Cook, Central Georgia Equine Services began in 1988. The business started small with one truck, one barn and one veterinarian. Over the next several years, the business grew, and in 1993 a second barn was built followed in short order by the main clinic facility and the staff to provide the quality care you receive today. In addition to the main clinic, the facilities now include an isolation barn, a foaling barn, several private paddocks, and double-fenced pastures situated on 70 acres of lush rolling pasture land.

Over time we expanded our services adding the most modern and portable equipment to allow premium health care for our mobile patients. We advanced our education by attending veterinary conferences on embryo transfer, tendon, and ligament ultrasound, lameness, ultrasound-guided injections, hysteroscopic insemination, fetal sexing, and many more.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you accept emergencies?

During business hours, we are able to take emergency cases. We ask that you ALWAYS call ahead so our team can assess the situation before you bring in your horse. There are also many times that we are off on farm calls and only our office staff is present. We are currently under limited hours of emergency service due to staffing issues. We offer emergency services from 8 am to 10 pm, 365 days per year. We welcome new patients.

If you have an emergency after hours, we recommend calling (478) 825-1981
