Welcome to AuroraSeren Equine!
(formerly Serenity Equine)
Laminitis (Founder), Lower Limb Trauma, Amputation and Prosthetic Placement, Club Feet, Angular Limb Deformities, and Heel Collapse
Welcome to AuroraSeren Equine (formerly Serenity Equine) - Virginia's first equine transitional care facility utilizing advanced laminitis treatment techniques.
Why the name change?
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose. (Ecc. 3:1)
The time has come for Serenity Equine to transition from only a clinic-based veterinary practice to that of a consultant role in the fight against equine lameness and laminitis.
AuroraSeren offers up a bit of the Celtic. AuroraSeren means Dawn Star. Just like a star at dawn, it signifies a new beginning....
Located in the tranquil hills of Central Virginia, our mission is to provide the best consultation to your veterinary and farrier team.
We are still here to help you....
When necessary for your horse to be in our care, we pledge to provide the best care, surgery, and post-operative treatment possible. We will do whatever it takes to relieve your horse from the emotional and physically crippling disease of laminitis (founder), lower limb trauma, heel collapse, club foot, and angular limb problems. We also offer the alternative of amputation and prosthetic placement, when there is no other way to save the foot.
Dr. Floyd's life-long concentration on lower limb and lameness issues has led to the development of new surgical, shoeing, trimming and recovery techniques--producing remarkable results in treating a wide range of problems.
There is hope, and AuroraSeren Equine is here to help.

Published by Elsevier Publishing House, this invaluable text reference by Dr. Floyd will help horsemen, farriers and veterinarians alike in understanding hoof issues.
This comprehensive text not only covers basic principles of horseshoeing, but also focuses on medical and surgical foot care management. Starting with the anatomy and physiology of the equine foot, this one-of-a-kind book then evaluates the foot, its pathological conditions (including structural, developmental, and traumatic conditions in addition to laminitis), balancing and shoeing the healthy and diseased equine hoof, and ends with a chapter on new directions in equine podiatry, written by cutting-edge researchers in the field.
The book is available through Amazon, and a complete table of contents is available at Elsevier Publishing.
Through the mists of our beginnings,
they came to us, though we may never know why.
From the dawn of our history they have been there.
They have died for us on the battlefield, they have carried
our kings to coronation and our Gods to their heavens.
They have been there at our humblest moments
and witnessed our most foul deeds.
We have abused them and adored them.
Now it is time to respect them...
- Andrea E. Floyd, D.V.M.
