About us

Welcome to McKinlay & Peters Equine Hospital!

How thankful we are to have our roots in such a beautiful part of the West. Dr. Jed McKinlay began the practice at his home in the Green Bluff area, north of Spokane, in 1993. Since that time the practice has grown and flourished.

In 1999, Dr. Bob Peters joined the practice and a solid partnership in equine veterinary care was formed. From our humble beginnings on Green Bluff, to our first facility and Reproduction Center in Colbert, to our new state of the art hospital in Newman Lake, our main focus has always been to provide the most comprehensive, compassionate care for horses possible. For the Love of Horses is not just our motto, but also our way of life. Each of our doctors, technicians, and staff are either horse owners themselves, or have a deep and abiding love for horses. We invite you to read a little about each of us. It is our hope that as you do, you will come to know that when you trust your horses care to McKinlay & Peters Equine Hospital, your horse is being cared for by horsemen and women who have dedicated their lives to one of God’s most beautiful creatures on earth — the Horse.
