As our practice has evolved into all sports medicine and lameness consult, and with the departure of Dr. Stewart, we want to remind our clients that setting up your horse(s) with a practice for general medicine and emergency in advance of necessity can alleviate stress if you should unfortunately need emergency assistance. We will miss our annual visits with our patients for wellness and vaccines, but acknowledge that we cannot be available in a pinch if we are traveling. Therefore we advise considering your options of other practices, and setting up an account with them before your spring vaccines may be due. This will allow the veterinarian that you call in an emergency an opportunity to meet you and your horse(s) and establish a relationship that you are comfortable with. Emergencies are stressful enough, but having a plan of who to call when you have one is the first step.
We are looking forward to continuing to see all of our friends, human and equine, in the future for your sports medicine and lameness needs. As always we hope to help our patients the best we can, whether they are in need of diagnosis or management!!
