Welcome to Countryside Equine Medicine & Dentistry!
We exist to provide the latest in medical and dental services to the horses of the greater Savannah, GA. region.
Core Values we’ve developed for CEMD:
One of the worst feelings as a horse owner is having an emergency medical situation arise with your horse, and not knowing if a veterinarian is available. Clients of CEMD can be assured that Dr. Myran is available 24/7 for any emergency care your horse requires. With 15 years of clinical experience, you can also rest assured that if an emergency happens, your veterinarian has the training and "real world" experience to handle it with calm, compassionate, and knowledgeable care.
Another foundation of a healthy horse is its feet. Because of this fact, I have developed a strong working relationship with the farriers in the Savannah area, and have taken on the studying and preparation needed to be able to converse and collaborate with professional blacksmiths of the region. I am on a first-name basis with nearly every farrier in the area, and have their phone numbers on speed-dial: it's that critical to your horse's health that we have a close working relationship.
The essential building block of a healthy horse is sound nutrition. Proper feeding of the horse is an area of special interest to me, and I've spent extensive time studying feedstuffs and forage. When I examine your horse, you can expect to have an in-depth discussion of your horse's feeding program, with knowledgeable feedback and advice. I encourage my clients to obtain forage and feed laboratory analyses, and am ready and able to assist with interpretation of the results.
Taking care of the oral health of horses is an area of special interest for me. Over the past 15 years, I have performed roughly 2,000 dental procedures in horses, attended several continuing education seminars, and invested in the equipment necessary to provide not only routine care, but also all manner of advanced procedures when required. The majority of these involve the extraction of diseased teeth and correction of malocclusions. I also accept dental referrals from my veterinary colleagues in the area. CEMD clients will also be pleasantly surprised to note that not all horses need to be "floated" once a year!
Offering AI and ultrasound services for local breeders.
Taking care of aged horses has become more critical in recent years, as it is now common to see horses live into their late 20's and even 30's. Along with advanced age comes special dietary and medical needs. A large number of my current patients are older horses, and I have devoted considerable study to meeting these special needs.
