    Default Vets in Ocala area?

    I'll be shipping some horses down to Ocala soon, and wanted to be sure I had the name of a vet in my contact list in case of emergencies. Any suggestions?

    Dr. Adam Cayot at Peterson & Smith he did my PPE, and was a pleasure to deal with I can't vouch for him regarding an injury but he was very thorough in his exam.

    I believe you're safe with any vet at Peterson & Smith Equine Hospital... they took excellent care of my boy this summer!

    Ditto the Peterson & Smith recommendation. They are wonderful to work with and all of their veterinarians are good and professional.

    We use him too and Eric, who just bought is practice with his wife has been working with us as our general vet and he's great too. Dr. Yoho will continue on in the practice.

    Ditto Jackie Linkus. There are an abundance of good vets in the Ocala area....
    The thing about smart people, is they look like crazy people, to dumb people.
