Welcome, About us

Hello and welcome. My name is Sammy L. Pittman, DVM and I am a veterinarian, farrier, and horsemen with a great interest in the field of equine podiatry. My wife and I own and operate Innovative Equine Podiatry and Veterinary Services in Collinsville TX. I offer a full line of horse veterinary care, however my passion lies within the health and well being of the hoof to better serve your equine companion. With so much lameness attributed to the lower limb many horses require an out of the box approach to achieve the success desired.
Give us a call and we will be glad to help you in any way we can. Thanks so much.
I will be discussing different Cases and thoughts from our world with the horse. Feel free to contact us via text or call at 918.235.1529 or send an email to iepvs11@gmail.com. Thank you for reading and enjoy

Pictures from the 5 day Podiatry class with Dr. Ric Redden

Well it was an exciting and educational week spent at Dr. Ric Reddens equine podiatry 201 clinic in Versailles Kentucky.  Attendees where largely international with teams from Switzerland, Germany, Costa Rica, Texas and of course Oklahoma.  Dr. Redden, his wife Nancy and his staff create a hospitable, laid back environment for easy learning.  We had several cases ranging from club feet, acute and chronic laminitis and navicular cases.  Mornings where spent in lecture covering topics with great detail that where relevant to the afternoon cases.  Dr. Amy Rucker of Midwest Equine in Columbia, Mo a long time student of Dr. Redden's, and popular lecturer regarding laminitis treatment and venogram study was also present assisting in the educational process.  It was very exciting to see the world wide interest that Dr. Redden has inspired through his multiple lectures across the world.  I plan to post several pictures in which more information will be in the caption below.  A special thanks to my team members, Frank the German Brendan Frost from Stillwater Ok.  It was a great pleasure meeting everyone and getting to spend valuable time with Dr's Redden and Rucker.
