Mission Statement

Providing a Higher Level of Care to Horses in Western NC

Welcome to Higher Ground Equine.  We have been providing a "higher" level of care to the horses of WNC since July 1, 2013.  Dr. Williamson is a licensed equine veterinarian and was also certified in Animal Chiropractic by the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association.  His areas of interest include lameness and performance evaluation, chiropractic evaluation, podiatry, dentistry, and reproduction. In January 2018, Higher Ground Equine merged with Cedar Ridge Animal Hospital.  Please click the following link to visit our new practice.  www.cedarridgevet.com

Good news!  Now we can perform fecal egg counts in house to guide you on a control plan.
