The Flying Cow Arena opened a veterinarian clinic on June 1st, welcoming recent graduate Ryan Grant and his wife Lacy. The arena, located on highway 59 north already hosts several events, including Bar None Cowboy Church on Sunday. The recent addition of Small and Grant Veterinarian clinic is sure to be a plus for animal owners in the community.
Arena owner Tony Smalls met Grant during his preceptorship while in school. Grant, a 2010 graduate from Oklahoma State University says he has always been an animal lover, but it was his grandpa that pushed him into the field.
“I grew up with cattle and horses and my grandpa really encouraged me to pursue this as a career.”
It was during his hands on training at The Flying Cow the two tossed around the idea of opening a clinic. According to Grant, when Tony gets an idea in his head, he makes it happen. And happen it did; in a matter of 10 days, the clinic was built and decorated in true “Cowboy” style.
The clinic consists of a surgery room where minor and elective surgeries can be performed; in house kennels for patients as well as the boarding of animals; an ultrasound machine for both equine and bovine animals; a portable xray machine and cattle facilities. For added convenience, the clinic does their own in house blood work.
There are times when it is not possible to bring your animal in, the friendly staff will come to you on a house call. Grant says he wants the public to know that they are there for them, both clients and patients.
From horses to cats, the new clinic is a full service facility open Monday through Friday from 8 to 5:30 pm and Saturday 8 to 11 am. For more information or to make an appointment for your animal please call 918-257-8448.
