Springwater Veterinary Services is devoted to providing the highest quality veterinary rehabilitation, chiropractic, and integrative medicine services available. Since 2001,  Dr. Porter has been dedicated to serving the animals in and around the Northern Idaho and Eastern Washington areas.  Dr.Porter is the only certified canine rehabilitation and certified equine rehabilitation practitioner in northern Idaho and surrounding areas. She is passionate about what she does and uses her skills and education to enrich the lives of her patients and her valued clients.

At Springwater, a large portion of the case load focuses on athletes;  including rodeo, reining, cutting, dressage, eventing, english and western pleasure and trail riding  horses.  The canine athletes participate in agility, herding, confirmation, schutzhund, hunting, tracking, nosework and protection. In addition to keeping these athletes in peak performance, extensive rehabilitation services are offered following injury or surgery and assisting geriatric animals to maintain a good quality of life. 

Dr. Porter has a passion for nutrition and supplements and as such, she uses a lot of herbal and natural remedies in treatments to minimize or eliminate the use of pharmaceuticals.

While most of the patients at Springwater Veterinary Services are horses and dogs, several patients of the feline variety are regular patients also.  There is a clear understand that animals are more than just pets – they are a part of the family. That’s why  each and every patient is treated as if they were her very own.

Dr. Porter always welcomes new patients and is looking forward to meeting you and your beloved pet in the near future!

We are happy to offer a number of resources that enable you to learn about how to take better care of your pets. Please feel free to browse our site, particularly the informational articles. The best veterinary care for animals is ongoing nutrition and problem prevention, so becoming knowledgeable about preventative pet care is essential to the ongoing success of your animal’s health. If you have any questions, call (208) 651-0973 or email us and we'll promptly get back to you. Our Hauser veterinary office is very easy to get to -- just check out the map below!
