Randall G. Scarrow, DVM

Dr. Scarrow is a 1984 graduate of The Western College of Veterinary Medicine. His focus has always been horses, through vet school and since the day he graduated. Dr. Scarrows experience covers almost all aspects of equine veterinary care. Twelve years were spent on the racetrack with responsibilities that included lameness diagnostics and treatment on numerous champions and world record holders. An equal time was spent in ambulatory practice, including providing the veterinary services for a number of Standardbred breeding farms, which was one of the first breeds to allow collection of semen for distribution for artificial insemination. The years in field practice have given him a great deal of experience in an amazing array of equine health and field surgery – there is nothing he will not attempt to fix. Dr. Scarrow claims to have always liked equine dentistry and the incorporation of power dentistry into the practice has allowed him to further pursue his passion for this aspect of care. Through it all, Dr. Scarrow really cares and loves horses. “I can’t imagine a day where I couldn’t get up and go and look at horses all day long…”
