Who We Are
At Energy Equine, our slogan is #StartStrongFinishStronger, and truly, that is the ethos of the veterinary practice. Our team approach to wellness encourages and welcomes body workers, therapists and farriers to be a part of their client's veterinary care. We firmly stand behind the products that we carry and have chosen each one specifically for the benefits they provide horse and rider.
Sports medicine and treating the equine athlete is what drives us. The ability to apply cutting edge healing technologies and then watch the equine athlete recover from a performance limiting injury and continue to successfully compete is what Energy Equine is passionate about, and what we love to do. Our team has been carefully selected to provide the perfect balance of experience, knowledge, and passion. We offer a unique team approach to veterinary medicine to ensure the highest level of equine care and client satisfaction.
What started as a one veterinarian-one truck show has evolved into a leading edge veterinary clinic and premier veterinary facility that serves Western Canada and beyond. Dr. Chad Hewlett, who has been in practice for over 25 years, founded Energy Equine in 2006 with the specific goal of treating performance horses. At the time, Dr. Hewlett operated ambulatory out of O'Brays Equine Services in Carstairs, Alberta. Ten years, and a few truck changes later, Dr. Hewlett is still in practice but Energy Equine has grown exponentially.
On July 7, 2016 Energy Equine moved into a brand new, custom designed facility just north of Airdrie, Alberta. On October 13, 2020 Synergy Equine opened it’s doors, just south of Spruce Meadows.
At Energy Equine our focus is on a collaborative approach, positive client experiences and an innovative approach to medicine. Our Airdrie location was finished in 2016 and our Dewinton location was completed in 2020. We take great pride in being able to offer a comfortable experience for both the client and patient at Energy Equine. Both clinics feature a comfortable reception area, treatment rooms, recovery stalls, as well as holding stalls, a covered round pen and large area for evaluations. We love welcoming each client and patient through our doors. In our lobby you will find a selection of products we believe in and recommend. These include, Kentucky Performance Products, EquiFlax, Core Balance, Ice Horse and Soft Ride to name a few.
