About Us

In J.R.R. Tolkiens " The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, the Elven King Elrond's house Rivendell is a place of peace, quiet, and healing. Our mission is to make Rivendell Equine Hospital the perfect place for your horse’s care and well being in St. Lawrence County.

Founded in 2009 by Dr. Dorothee, we are the only veterinary practice in St. Lawrence County that limits itself to only serving the medical needs of horses and other equids. 
While having a one-track mind is annoying when we have to take our own dogs and cats to a colleague for veterinary care (trust us, it's better that way!), it makes us really good at the one thing we do: taking care of horses, ponies, and donkeys. This allows us to spend all of our resources on equine-specific continuing education, and enables us to purchase specialized equipment. We believe that we can offer better medicine this way, enhancing the chances of a positive outcome for your equine companion.
