Dr. Jim Hassinger is a graduate of North Carolina State University and Auburn University School of Veterinary Medicine. He has been actively practicing veterinary medicine for 25 years. In 2003, Dr. Hassinger narrowed his focus and opened Hassinger Equine Service in Aberdeen, NC as a sports medicine and performance centered practice dedicated to equine lameness, performance management, rehabilitation and imaging. "There has always been a need for a rehabilitation clinic, run by "horse people," to support the efforts of equine veterinarians nationwide." Dr. Hassinger is an active rider both at Hassinger Farm and at shows along the East Coast.
Hassinger Equine Sports Medicine is one of the only clinics in the United States to have a cutting-edge, mobile veterinary hospital. The mobile clinic is a state of the art facility in which we are able to complete all the same services as our home location in a surgically sound environment, such as intra-articular joint injections. The clinic provides a climate controlled, horse-friendly environment while traveling to horse shows around the nation and private facilities.
