New year -- new clinic

new brand


We are so excited to share our new clinic offerings with you including our monthly Massie Equine Masterclasses, Fitness Coaching & Bodywork and equine care plans that make it all affordable!


do you still see pets and livestock?


Any pet or livestock client with a current exam on record during 2023 is still active in our system and we are happy to serve you in 2024 and beyond if we see your animal annually. Going forward we will only see NEW pets and livestock for established equine households. When equine clients switch their pets and livestock over to our clinic you will receive 10% off their annual exams. Folks love that we can come to their farm and see every animal on the property! You can also bring them to the clinic as well.

Equine fitness coaching & bodywork with Andria


Andria is our equine physiotherapist. Her extensive experience as a trainer and equine bodyworker helps Dr. Massie evaluate our patients' posture, gait abnormalities, muscular and soft tissue tension, and behavioral manifestations of pain. She uses a variety of equine bodywork modalities for horses that are sore, tight or stiff from either normal workload or underlying causes and who may be exhibiting discomfort or irritability. Our bodywork practices include non-invasive massage therapy, trigger point therapy, spinal manipulation, and musculoskeletal, soft tissue, and cranial sacral adjustments. 


Work with Andria one-on-one through a series of in-hand or in-saddle equine fitness sessions to uncover physical restrictions your horse may be facing when attempting to move freely. Andria will provide you with a plan you can work on together to help your horse return to unrestricted movement. Call Tori today at 541-636-1191 to schedule your bodywork and equine fitness coaching session with Andria and uncover what may be holding you and your horse back!


latest blogs



Stand up straight, shoulders back, keep your head level, and don’t slouch -- we all understand the basics of good posture for ourselves. But have we ever considered the equivalent for our horses? Horses spend over 20 hours a day standing, which means their posture has much more of an effect on their athleticism than we realize.



Our monthly newsletters will always update you with what is happening here at the clinic and provide you with veterinary excellence in equine healthcare. For daily updates, emergency information, and equine care tips please follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Youtube.


Thank you and as always, reach out to us with any questions you may have by calling Tori at 541-636-1191 or emailing reception@massievet.com
