I will never be able to thank Dr. Taraba enough for all he did for my horse! He treated him with nothing but kindness and did everything in his power to get him healthy. My gelding was diagnosed with ...EPM 6 months ago, I thought my horse would never be sound again. Thanks to Taraba, he is doing better then ever and only 2 more weeks and he can start being rode! He truly is an AMAZING vet and does everything he can to succeed. I could not have asked for a better vet. See More

Doc is beyond patient with our horses. He takes the time needed to answer all our questions and goes above and beyond for us every time we’re there and even when we’re not. He’s the best

Can't thank God enough for all that he does. We made it to the 5d short round for the BBR Southern Territorial Finals. We wanted 1st, but we still placed 4th in our division. Doug, we have work to do!...!!
Thank you SEM performance for our training. @Netexasequine for keeping my boys right. MULE for keeping Doug feeling good. Rosie Bradley for our oxygen supplements. @bluebonnetfeeds for our amazing nutrition support. D.j. Tdkdallas for visual support ���

Dr. Tabara is a phenomenal vet! I have only had one other equine vet that was rated 5 stars, and that was a vet from over 8+ years ago. I am extremely picky with my vets, and so far I haven't found an...y down here that rate any higher than 3 stars! I love how thorough he is will the equines, and how he always takes his time instead of rushing! Thank you so much for amazing care! See More

Absolutely love bringing my barrel horses to see Doc. Your appointment is your appointment. No sharing with other people or horses. You get one on one attention. Doc goes over your entire horse from ...head to toe. He takes time to explain everything in detail to you. See More

I call Keith Taraba first. He is my go to vet and has taught me a lot. All dealings are fair and he goes the extra mile for his clients - and in my case, lots of miles! I really appreciate that he ...stays current and knows his stuff, is always willing to listen and then honestly does what is going to be the best for the horse. I wish he'd clone himself so he could move a clinic to the Paris area! See More

Dr. T got my gelding feeling his best again. Thank you! Love the leg paint ♥
Testimonial: "I would like to thank Dr. Keith and Vanessa THANK YOU for all you have done for Star. Sense we started treatment with the polyglycan and pevocox he is a totally different horse. You just had to know this horse before. He now picks his feet up when asked, he drops his head to take the bit, he allows me to stretch him. Just an about face. When I run him he is smoother and really wants to work. We have followed your advice on how to set his feet. It's just everything put together. It has worked for us. The monthly health plan makes it easier for me to give my horses this care also. Thank you again. Look forward to a continued care for my horses." Gina, Star, and Spanky

Scheduling Appts Before the Move


To all of our loyal clients,


First, I want to extend my gratitude for your support during our move. We have been greeted with so many kind words and encouragement, even though we know it is saddening that we will be leaving. While it is bittersweet, Vanessa and I are excited about beginning the New Year and a new chapter in the life of our family.

I wanted to let you know that I will continue to see patients in Northeast Texas regularly for a couple more months, until we officially relocate. However, our office hours will be abbreviated. Please leave a voice message when you call, shoot me a text at 903-855-3179, or send us an email at this address, and we will get you taken care of.

After the move, I am hoping to be available a couple times a month in Northeast Texas, and will keep you posted on how to schedule these visits.

A Farm Call Day is scheduled for Tomball, TX Jan 6th. Please respond to this email to schedule.

Something new I am going to start offering is sports medicine treatments for dogs. Everything we do in horses, shockwave, joint injections, pain management, etc, I am going to begin applying in canine medicine. If you have a dog that is showing signs of lameness or pain, please call me on my cell, 903-855-3179, and we can talk about what type of pain management options may be a good fit to help your pet.

Intra-Articular Injections

Joint injections, also known as intra-articular injections, are commonly performed in human and equine medicine for the treatment of osteoarthritis. For small animals, these injections are less often performed primarily due to lack of adequate understanding of their healing abilities and/or lack of formal training.

The Jr NFR is underway here in Las Vegas and we got the chance to chat with a few of our MVP riders that qualified for the event! Good Luck to all our Team MVP riders!

Very interesting article.

Nearly 75% of horses in a recent study had significant motion asymmetry, but were sound according to their owners.

Dr. Taraba will be traveling to Tomball, Tx. He will be there on December 2, 2017. He will be set up at Jodi Travis's place again.
