About Us

Mid-Michigan Equine Services was established in 2006 by Laura Pylman, DVM (formerly Chamberlain).

Laura Pylman, DVM

Dr. Pylman completed her undergraduate degree at Michigan State University with a bachelors in Animal Science –Equine Emphasis.  She then attended MSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine where she completed her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree.  While there she took a strong focus in Equine Lameness and Reproduction.  After graduation Dr. Laura worked for Prairie Equine Veterinary Clinic (one of the greater Chicagoland’s premier Equine Sports Medicine practices) in Barrington Hills, IL.  During that time she also worked at Animal Medical Center of Crystal Lake, her mother’s full service small animal clinic in Crystal Lake, IL.  This unique combination of experiences allowed her to develop a broad range of surgical, diagnostic, and treatment skills that benefit all her patients -large and small.

Dr. Laura’s horse interests cover a broad range of breeds and disciplines.  As a youth she began riding Arabians in english and western pleasure events.  Later she became involved in high school and college rodeo and began barrel racing and roping on Quarter Horses and Paints.  Veterinary school placed a large time constraint on showing, so Dr. Laura began studying dressage and riding warmbloods in what little free time she had.  After graduation, Dr. Laura purchased a racing Quarter Horse, Abrcadozen, that she ran on the track for 2 years.  During that time she also began taking jumping lessons on her Trakehner mare, Mrs. Hyde, and competed in local hunter/jumper shows as well as a few USEA recognized events.  Currently Dr. Laura has been showing her young Arab/Dutch Warmblood cross, GA Aphrodite (Affie), in halter, Sport Horse In Hand, and dressage classes, while continuing with her dressage and jumping lessons on Abra (now retired from the track), and learning the finer nuances of dressage from Mystique, her new Hannoverian schoolmaster.  Anishnaabe (Levi)  is a racing Arabian foal she co-owns that should be hitting the track in 2011, so her horse life truly has come full circle!
