Just a couple short months ago, we sent out our "State of the Practice" email with our plans for the upcoming year. Well, thanks to our fabulous clients who continuously help us grow our business and a few connections we made at December's AAEP conference, our newest bundle of joy arrived THIS WEEK! Now, I'm sure it's not what you're thinking, but we're so excited! Some of you may have heard us talking about it already, but for those of you who haven't....
It's a GASTROSCOPE!
We can now do gastroscopy at your farm or barn! You asked! We listened! We're now the first and only mobile equine vet in Loudoun County to be offering this on-your-farm technology. No more hauling your horse in for expensive in-hospital gastroscopy!
We're saving you time, money, and piece of mind... our gastroscopy procedure will be $375 plus your farm call fee. This includes sedation and the scoping procedure combined with recorded video and photography.
Okay, some of you may be asking... What's gastroscopy?
Gastroscopy is a painless procedure that allows our veterinary team to see live images and video of your horse's stomach, using a very long, flexible camera. Gastroscopy is often used to diagnose gastric ulcers, as it's the ONLY way to get a definitive diagnosis for Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS). Using gastroscopy, the vets can also see which type of ulcers exist and the severity or extent of the ulceration. Gastroscopy can also identify stomach impactions, tumors, or other abnormalities of the upper GI tract. Based on the severity of the findings, we can initiate a tailored medication plan, instead of just a "best guess" eliminating under- and over-medicating.

Have You Tested Your Horse for Lyme Disease?
Lyme disease manifests itself in equine in a variety of ways, many of which are non-specific. Fever, stiffness, muscle pain, swollen joints, lameness, changes in behavior, and skin sensitivity are all potential symptoms of Lyme disease. Have your horse tested, treated if necessary, and vaccinated to protect them from this common tick-borne disease. Read more.

Barn kitties looking for work!
The Loudoun Community Cat Coalition is looking for new outdoor homes for 7 beautiful cats. These kitties are used to living on a farm with horses, peacocks, geese, and a dog. They are fixed and up to date on vaccines and there is no adoption fee. The Coalition has volunteers that can assist with the relocation. All you need to do is offer food, water, and proper shelter and they will work year round to rid your outdoor buildings of mice and other rodents.
Contact Kim at email@example.com or 703-687-6009 if you are willing to help!

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.
