Having grown up in St. George and Pine Valley, Dr. Justin Gardner has long dreamed of owning an equine practice in Southern Utah. He is a graduate of Dixie High School and holds degrees from Dixie State College, AS; Brigham Young University, BS; and Colorado State University, DVM, MBA.
After graduating from Veterinary School in May of 2013, he had the opportunity to intern at Outlaw Equine in Decatur, Texas, where he was mentored by Dr. Josh Harvey and Dr. Don Lee, who specialize in equine sports medicine. As a fan and participant of rodeo, Dr. Gardner enjoyed working on some of the best performance horses in the pro rodeo circuit during his internship.
He has a particular interest in diagnosing and treating equine lameness and has made this the focus of his equine practice.
