One of my favorite clients took these pictures this morning. The handsome young llama in the picture is named Night Shade.
I call him Deadly Night Shade. I castrated him a few weeks ago but he doesn't hold it against me. He is a pasture guardian. He protects sheep against predators. He takes his job seriously and he's getting better at it every day.

Winter Special!!!

Y'all know I work on many large animals, but my favorite are horses.
In recognition of Christmas and my 10th year of self employment, I am doing some equine specials.

Core vaccines (Rabies, EEE, WEE, West Nile & tetanus) and full horse exam emphasizing teeth, eyes, ears, heart, lungs, all 4 feet as well as many other equine topics. Only $80 each.

Equine dentistry performed by hand under light sedation. No power tools. I may be the most qualified veterinary equine dentist in the area with over 3,500 hand floats under my belt.
I get a lot of satisfaction doing horse dentistry Christmas special - $100 each.

Hoof abscesses, corneal ulcers, chokes, belly aches? Bring it on. I excel with colicy horses.

Need your goats tuned up? No problem.
Got chickens? Me too! Let's talk about them.

Pregnancy check your cattle? I've put my arm inside more cattle in Aiken county than anyone else. It's hard to put a number on it but I'd say well over 10K cow preg checks in my time.

Rabies is on the rise and it's a real public health issue. Need your farm animals Rabies vaccinated? I can do that!
Dog & cat Rabies vaccines with tags and certificate are $25 each.

I have a degree in animal nutrition from Michigan State and can help you in that department.

Not sure what you need? Just need advice?
Just need a rural farm psychiatrist?
I can do that. I am happy to do as much or as little as you would like. I always try to work within your goals and budget.
I grew up on a farm and have earned every penny I have ever had. I know the value of a dollar. Before I was a vet I made a living riding and driving horses. It's in my blood. My experience will save you time and money as well as provide a better quality of life to your animals.

Don't expect a quick response through Facebook, rather text me at 803-522-2981.

Make an appointment for any time within the next 3 months and I will honor these special prices. I primarily serve Aiken county.
Thank you for your support over the past decade, here's to the next ten years!!!

Written and posted by a colleague:

The Rainbow Bridge

Once two angels went to the Rainbow Bridge. They watched as new arrivals came to the bridge and watched as their beloved pets who have been waiting for them broke from the group and ran towards a joyful reunion with their family member.

A short while later, a person approached the bridge, and every head turned towards him in anticipation. This person was greeted by a multitude, and he loved and petted on many animals. As they turned to cross the bridge, they looked around and several more animals joined them and their pets. The second angel said to the first angel "Why were there so many animals with that person and why did more join them to cross the bridge?" The first Angel smiled and said "That was an Animal Rescuer. All the animals that greeted them we're animals that they had rescued. The animals that joined them to cross the bridge did not have a home in the earthly world. The rescuer is making their final rescues."

Then suddenly, the meadow became very quiet and every animal looked across at the lone figure coming towards them. As the person approached, animals broke from the pack and ran joyfully to him. While the happy reunions were taking place, the rest of the animals formed into columns leading to the Rainbow Bridge. The person and his pets walked between these two lines. The person frequently stopped and petted and murmured to animals. The second Angel asked the first angel if that was another Animal Rescuer. The first Angel smiled and said "No, that was a veterinarian and all those animals were animals that he helped." The two angels watched as the veterinarian made his way through the crowd of animals slowly, stopping often to greet old friends. More animals joined them as they passed by. The first angel told the second angel that those were animals that were loved more by the veterinarian than they were by any other human. When the veterinarian reached the bridge, all the animals bowed, and with one last look back at the meadow, the veterinarian crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.
