Trust ◊ Education ◊ Professionalism
Our veterinarians are fortunate to have an assistant with them the majority of the time. Their primary duties are to assist veterinarians in countless ways. Depending on the procedure, they may also be called on to handle your horse. For the majority of the time, however, you will be required to handle your horse.
It is very helpful for us to have clear directions to your horse and the ability to have our vehicles close the patient when we get there.
Dogs can be problematic. They often like our bloody gauze sponges and sometimes can agitate a sick horse by barking or getting too close to the sick horse. If possible, we ask that dogs be kept inside and away from the emergency.
