Surgery

Energy Equine is expanding our Surgical Practice!
Meet Dr. Jase Skelton, DVM, MS
Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Surgeons (Large Animal)

As many of you know, Dr. Jase Skelton joined Energy Equine in June of 2023, and we are excited to promote his expanding surgical and consultation services.
 
Dr. Jase Skelton is a board-certified large animal surgeon. He was born and raised in southern Alberta and graduated with distinction from University of Calgary Veterinary Medicine in 2016. Upon graduation he completed an internship at Pioneer Equine Hospital in Oakdale, California, followed by a three-year residency and master’s degree in large animal surgery at Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine in Indiana. After Indiana he then moved to Texas where he completed a one-year sports medicine fellowship with Equine Athlete Veterinary Services before working as an associate surgeon for two years.

His work carried him across the USA working on performance horses at regional and national horse shows. During his time in Texas he would travel to Michigan to perform surgeries for Michigan Equine Surgical Associates. In 2021 Dr. Skelton became board certified in large animal surgery and is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons.
 
Dr. Skelton’s experience in both surgical case load and sports medicine practice makes him a well-rounded and excellent fit for Energy Equine. His professional interests lie in orthopedic surgery, arthroscopy, lameness and diagnostic imaging. He is looking forward to expanding the surgical services offered at Energy Equine Veterinary Services. Currently, Energy Equine is investing in the development of surgical facilities at Energy Equine in Airdrie, with plans to develop a surgical suite in conjunction with a rehab facility, at Synergy Equine in Dewinton, by 2025.

  • Sequestrum Surgery

  • Castrations (routine, mature or high risk)

  • Cryptorchid Castrations

Stay tuned for future surgical services that will be added to the list as we develop our surgical suite and offerings, including kissing spine surgery, upper airway surgeries and more!
 
Dr. Jase Skelton welcomes surgical referrals, so please feel free to reach out to our clinic for consultations on specialty cases. He is more than happy to work with referral veterinarians on cases, as well as discuss cases with owners.
 
We look forward to providing this new and improved level of service and accommodation.
