Offering full service equine care in the heart of Oklahoma
With a passion for equine heath and being able to provide all their medical needs despite the complexity, Precision Equine Surgery and Medicine is making a name for itself.
Located close to I-35 in Purcell, Oklahoma, Veterinarian Matt Nimmo brings his years of surgical knowledge and equine care to the heart of Oklahoma. Dr. Nimmo is not new to the area, as his first start in the area began with contracting with Oklahoma Equine Hospital.
“When I started looking for places to open my facility, I knew I wanted to be close to I-35,” Nimmo explains. “With the dense horse population in Purcell, this was a great fit.”
Precision Equine Surgery and Medicine has been open since the end of 2019. Nimmo and his team of three veterinarian technicians is a full ambulatory practice meeting the needs for their clients.
Nimmo graduated from Oklahoma State University with his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 2005. After graduation he accepted an internship and then a surgical residency with Peterson and Smith Equine Hospital in Ocala, Florida. During his time at Peterson and Smith Equine Hospital he worked with the top surgeons in the country learning an emphasis with arthroscopy, colic, upper airway and fracture repair all while becoming proficient in sports medicine, neonatal care and general medicine.
After completing his residency, Nimmo took a position as an equine surgeon for Tennessee Equine Hospital in Thompson Station, Tennessee. During his two year stay in Tennessee he completed his requirements to become a board-certified equine surgeon.
“I grew up in Ada, Okla. and wanted to be closer to my family,” Nimmo explains. “Once I moved back, I started practicing as a full ambulatory equine veterinarian and then started contracting with Oklahoma Equine Hospital.”
With a desire to start his own practice in Oklahoma, Nimmo was able to bring his years of knowledge and expertise to start Precision Equine Surgery and Medicine and offer complete care from beginning to end.
“Being able to have a strong veterinarian/patient relationship all while building trust with the owners is what we strive to offer and I am excited to continue to grow our practice in this area,” Nimmo concludes.
