Kentucky Lake Equine Services was established in 2004 exclusively as an equine ambulatory practice serving western Kentucky. Dr. Abernathy-Young quickly realized that she wanted a higher quality of care for her patients than a mobile practice could provide. In 2005, Dr. Abernathy-Young and her husband, Monte, purchased a piece of property at 4224 Mayfield Highway in Benton, Kentucky. Then the building process began to erect a facility with the capability of housing hospitalized horses so that patients could receive the most accurate diagnosis and treatment.
Over the last decade, several changes have been made to the hospital. We have an ICU stall for critical patients needing extra attention. Two foaling stalls are available with cameras for around the clock monitoring.We have an area dedicated to stallion training and collection. As well as an area for full lameness examinations and diagnosis. We provide nine individual paddock turnouts with covered areas. We can run a variety of in-house testing for the quickest diagnoses. We offer two endoscopes on-site for horses with gastrointestinal problems as well as respiratory issues. The clinic is equipped to service a full range of reproduction needs, including AI, frozen or cooled semen, cycling hormones, and so much more!
We pride ourselves in being the foremost provider in western Kentucky of Comprehensive Compassionate Care to your equine athlete or backyard horse or mule, by having the facilities and staying up-to-date on new advanced procedures and treatment protocols.
