Welcome to Fox Run Equine Center
We are a full service equine hospital located near Apollo, Pennsylvania. We are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. While we are a referral hospital, we also have an extensive patient base that we tend to daily. Dr. Brian Burks, our director, is board certified by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners in all aspects of equine medical care and is the only veterinarian to achieve this status of expert in equines in the Western Pennsylvania area.
We offer a wide range of services including digital radiography, nuclear scintigraphy, in house laboratory and Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ECSWT). Our hospital includes 22 stalls, divided between our medical and surgical case barns, ICU, and isolation. We also offer ambulatory services for routine and minor care.
We believe in a complete synergistic relationship between you and your horse. Visit us to see what services we can offer your horse.
If you know a horse with one of these diseases (which you may know as equine COPD or heaves) – you’ve seen how they can suffer. Inflammation of the airways causes breathlessness, wheezing, and coughing that no horse should experience
If your horse is over age four and has been diagnosed with Recurrent Airway Obstruction (RAO) or Summer Pasture Associated Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (SPAOPD), your horse may be eligible to participate in this FDA-regulated clinical study of an investigational medication that will help bring much-needed quality research to the equine community.
Afflicted horses are now being recruited for this study to carefully evaluate an investigational drug with the potential to treat RAO and SPAOPD.
Our hope is that the research will result in an approved treatment – because today there are far too few FDA-approved drugs for horses afflicted with these diseases.
You can get full information on the study here, including which horses qualify, what’s involved, benefits to you, and how you can help.
If you are interested in learning more or enrolling in the study, please call us today! Participation is free.

Dr. Burks came out on a weekend when my horse had colic. He was very thorough and was great with my horse as well as decent conversation and didn't make me feel badly when asking questions. Thank you for looking at my boy with such short notice!
