The Wait is Over! Dr. Coppelman has arrived at Total Equine!

I am super excited to bring Dr. Elizabeth Coppelman to Total Equine Veterinary Associates. She's a great catch! In an ongoing effort to bring the highest quality care to your farm, we recruited another specialist. Dr. Coppelman (or "Dr. E" to her clients) is a surgeon and brings us many years of both practical lameness and equine veterinary experience. She recently completed her contract as a Clinical Professor at the University of Minnesota School of Veterinary Medicine and decided to come home to family and friends in Northern Virginia, and TEVA. She is a local and grew up riding in this area.

Advanced lameness, emergency, dentistry, and routine care are all service areas that Dr. E will provide to TEVA patients. And coming from a university, she loves teaching and explaining procedures as well as answering lots of questions.

While we don't envision building a proper hospital in our near future, Dr. E can bridge the referral gap of services that can be safely and efficiently performed on the farm. Here is a short list of surgical services that she brings to TEVA:

  • Cutting ligaments for laminitis or upright hooves
  • Helping with crooked baby legs
  • Neurectomy for navicular disease or pain in the heel
  • Cryptorchids
  • Eye removals
  • Extensive wound repair

Dr. E will be riding around with Dr. Hyman and I over the next several weeks. We are excited to introduce you to her during our routine visits and indoctrinate D.r E to TEVA's unique style and high level of service.

Elizabeth is a natural. She is a great horseman, a thoughtful and courteous veterinarian, easy-going, and I wouldn't bring anyone into TEVA that didn't already personify those characteristics that make TEVA what it is today.

She a great fit for all of us, and we will all continue to serve you and your horses with the greatest attention and enthusiasm.

Please read her biography below and welcome her to the TEVA family.

Dr. Jay

PS - While we're super excited about Dr. E, this doesn't mean you lose your choice of veterinarians. YOU CONTROL the vet that sees you. Just ask when making your appointment. We want to do this YOUR way!
