Rush Animal Care Clinic Backyard Veterinarian 

The increase in popularity of backyard and peri-urban agriculture provides both challenges and opportunities for veterinarians. Rush Animal Care Clinic offers  veterinary services to owners who often view their animals as pets rather than production animals. This requires a unique approach and different skills sets than providing veterinary service to owners of conventional or commercial livestock operations. If you're looking for a caring and reliable backyard veterinarian to treat your pet, Rush Animal Care, P.C. in Johnston can provide the most comprehensive services.

Backyard Veterinarian


Backyard Veterinarian

Dr. Pat Huston will treat backyard goats and sheep, as well as ponies, donkeys, and alpacas.  These visits must be done by appointment.  We can see small goats in the office.  For larger animals, or multiples, he can make an on-site visit. This would include the smaller farms, or acreages. 

Dr. Pat can offer medical consultations, husbandry advice (feeding, housing), and guidance on setting up year-round health programs.  Sound nutritional advice and parasite control are imperative to maintaining good health, especially for a breeding program. Dr. Pat is an accredited veterinarian, so he can do examinations for health certificates on these species.  

Dr. Pat is not able to accommodate after-hours emergencies for these animals, and is not offering services for backyard chickens, pot-bellied pigs, or pet deer.
