OCTOBER 2016
 
TEVA Certified Green  
Annually, since the 2009 inception of the Loudoun County Green Business Challenge, Total Equine Veterinary Associates has been named a Loudoun Green Business. This year was no exception.
The Green Business Awards were presented at the October 26th Chamber of Commerce reception held at Catoctin Creek Distilling Company in Purcellville, VA.
TEVA’s environmental sustainability efforts is just one more layer to the company’s commitment to the community. Being recognized annually for achievements, improvements, and a consistent “green” plan is evidence that everyone can make positive changes in energy conservation efforts. From office equipment to light bulbs, and recycling programs to telework policies, implementation of TEVA’s green efforts continue to improve with each passing year.

Pasture Mgmt & Toxic Plants 
You be the judge!

Lameness stems from a multitude of culprits. Learn how to identify common lameness causes, levels of lameness, and proven methods to help ease your horse’s pain. Explore popular veterinary technology available to speed healing combined with an important discussion about the nutrition aspects of joint health.
How to grow the good stuff! Ask the experts as they join us to present important and timely topics on pasture management and toxic plant identification for equine enthusiasts. Presented by Dr. Bridgette McIntosh from the Virginia Tech MARE Center and Chris Van Vlack from the Loudoun Soil and Water Conservation District, this evening’s worth of information is sure to get you growing in the right direction.

HELP US HELP YOU
Make the Most of Your Vet Appointment
1. Be on time and have your horse caught and haltered. To maximize the time your vet can spend with you, please have your horse ready, especially if your horse is difficult to catch!

2. Make sure your horse is clean enough for the vet to examine.

Whether needing to look good for Coggins photos or facilitating preparation for procedures or vaccines, a clean horse is less likely to have negative reactions.

3. Work with your horse and teach good manners. 

Not every horse enjoys a visit from the vet, but if it has basic manners things will go much more smoothly.  Simple leading, trotting a straight line and the ability to stand quietly for temperature taking are imperative.

4. Write down questions and concerns beforehand.

 Present your list at the start of the appointment. Large concerns that are forgotten until the end of the exam cannot be properly addressed at the end of the appointment.
