We are the answer to your animal’s medical needs; whether it is at our facility or during a farm call at your location.

Leatherstocking Veterinary Group gets its name from James Fenimore Cooper’s tales of the pioneer days in Central New York. In true pioneer spirit, our veterinarians take an innovative approach to the solutions of animal health problems. We offer a full range of equine & dairy health, surgical, & reproductive services – including 24-hour emergency coverage. For the horse owners, our services include: stallion and mare management, equine medical management, and diagnostic and surgical services in an ambulatory and hospital setting. Our dairy service offers routine herd health management programs, ultrasound pregnancy diagnosis, computer records analysis, and routine and emergency services. We also provide care for small ruminants, camelids and pigs.

Our Facilities

Leatherstocking Veterinary Services sits on over 380 acres of rolling hills and forests in picturesque Central New York. Our main barn includes:

  • 28 matted stalls with full mesh sliding doors and timed lighting
  • 4 heated foaling stalls with mattresses and 24-hour HD video monitoring
  • A heated treatment room that contains a breeding area with a phantom, tease chute and stocks
  • An attached fully-equipped breeding lab with the latest technology
  • The main office that contains a full pharmacy, reception area, offices and a break room.

In one of the original buildings of the property we have a heated quarantine stall that has 24-hour monitoring for critical horses that need to be isolated. For our busy spring season we have a shed row with tens stalls allowing us to always have room for new horses. Amongst our rolling hills, there are six paddocks and three large pastures giving us plenty of room for daily turnout. At our auxiliary farm across Route 80, there is room for an additional 20 stalls, 5 paddocks and several large pastures.
