An ill horse is every owner’s worst nightmare, but if your horse is boarded at a large barn or if they became seriously sick, would you know what to do? Would you be prepared to handle it
We have always done more than write. In addition to bodywork on horses and smaller mammals, including humans, we provide excellent care for Critters, Farms & Houses when dear friends travel. Occasionally we must go to extremes in order to ensure the well-being of their animals and homes: these efforts more than justify the small amount we ask to help our bill-paying fund (aka income before outgo!).
I’m in the midst of my final exams for school so things have been very busy, but I have some very exciting news that I wanted to share! We finally got the news we’d been hoping for! As of November 14, Palermo has officially been cleared to go back to work! Yay! While his injury still isn’t entirely healed, our vet feels as though he is ready to start rehabbing. This made me nervous at first, as I tend to err on the side of caution, but I’ve had to come to the realization that this is our ‘new normal’. There has been really significant improvement, especially since we did the PRP injections, and our vet feels as though he is ready to start going back to work.
