Promised an update on the navicular cyst case. While the coffin joint injections did help dramatically, they didn’t provide full relief of lameness therefore we went ahead and did a neurectomy today

We ask that if you are experiencing flu like symptoms or not feeling well that you have another person on hand to handle your horses during any routine procedures or emergencies. On our part, we will be diligent in our sanitization procedures & happy to answer any questions should they arise. Our distributors have also been in touch with us and let us know that they are following correct sanitization procedures while packaging our ordered products.

DID YOU KNOW?

That's right -- horses can catch the flu, too. Equine influenza is a highly contagious respiratory condition, and is one of the most common infectious diseases of the respiratory tract of horses. Influenza is endemic in the equine population of the United States, which means it's always around.

Equine fu spreads rapidly through groups of horses in aerosolized droplets dispersed by coughing, and the severity of clinical signs depends on the degree of existing immunity within the affected individual, among other factors. Any horse showing signs of respiratory disease (cough, nasal discharge, persistent fever) should be isolated immediately until the cause can be determined by your veterinarian.

Contact your horse doctor for more information on how to prevent this disease through an appropriate vaccination protocol and biosecurity practices.

The Regenerative Advantage

Regenerative Laser Therapy (RLT) is achieved when light is delivered in very short, very high-energy pulses. When these pulses are absorbed deep into the tissue, they create an outgoing shockwave (in all directions;) called a photo-acoustic wave that propagates even deeper into the tissue. More importantly, these waves can interact with the extracellular matrix, a web of tissue around the tendon/ligament that hold important growth factors. RLT can force these growth factors to be released and absorbed into injured cells when they would NOT have naturally. RLT technology broadens the scope of what can be treated to the more severe pathologies, especially in the ligaments and tendons of the equine athlete.

Injuries that will naturally cause scar tissue, which over time will compromise the elasticity of the tendon/ ligament, can now be nipped in the bud (if caught early) or even restored in chronic cases.

Call today to discuss the RLT laser & schedule your appointment

Interesting case today. 15 year old gelding with a lameness score of 2+/5 today, sore to hoof testers, blocked out to an abaxial nerve block. Images showed a navicular cyst. Injected the coffin joint to see if it will provide relief from lameness. Fluid was thin & irritated. Will post follow up on this case in a week.

I am excited to begin offering a limited “online pharmacy” through Vetsource. First time buyers get a one time 25% discount on their entire first order with potential distributor discounts on certain products as well. Subsequent monthly specials will be posted & appear like the ads below. Right now I am operating on a “call me” to place an order basis & I will do my best to get you what you’re looking for. I will still be selling products “off the truck” so to speak but would like to be able to offer “maintenance or monthly” medications at a discounted price if possible... Payment will be taken directly through the website & the items ordered will be shipped to you within 5 business days. Please call me at 803-295-8509 or email me at [email protected] to ask me if I’m able to set your animal up on this program. Currently compounded medications are being ordered through Wedgewood pharmacy only. Information needed will be the animals name/age/sex/breed, owner name/address/email/credit card information. We can set you up on monthly/quarterly etc auto ships on your required products. Will be doing some small animal products as well (flea/tick, etc). Let me know how I can help with your orders. Obviously there needs to be an established client/patient relationship to make an order as well.

Dr. Thompson is now using acupuncture in her practice! This ancient Eastern medicine is a fabulous alternative modality and Dr Thompson enjoys educating the client as she goes through a thorough exam of each horse.
Event horse 'Deadpool' was licking his lips throughout his treatment, giving the stamp of approval.

There has been a confirmed case of strangles (strep equi) in phase 6 of Three Runs. The horse is in proper quarantine & is being treated. Recommendations at this time are to have your horses vaccinated with the intranasal form of the strep equi vaccine for the most effective immunity. Please call to schedule an appointment to have your horses vaccinated or if you have any questions.

Moved here recently from Seattle and finding a vet was a high priority. Sarah came with great recommendations and has surpassed all expectations. The long trip took a toll on my of my horses and she has been there every step of the way, even checking in while she was on vacation. Sarah is terrific!
A HUGE thank you to Dr. Sarah Tennant Thompson and her crew for saving not only my mares’ life, but her unborn foals’ life also. A few weeks ago, one of my broodmares came down with Colitis. But thanks to the speedy and aggressive treatment, she rebounded and was home a week later with a clean bill of health. Sarah and company worked around the clock for the first few days, getting my mare back on the upswing. Then continuous monitoring ensured no back sliding. They went above and beyond in ALL aspects, with outstanding care and compassion. Thank you so very much ❤️❤️
I have to give a HUGE thank you to Dr. Sarah Tennant Thompson, on saving not only my mares’ life, but her unborn foals’ life too. A few weeks ago, one of my broodmares came down with Colitis. Due to the speed and aggressive treatment, my mare responded quite quickly and was back home in a week with a clean bill of health. Sarah and her crew pulled together for round the clock treatment for a few days to help shift my girl back into an upswing, then continued with top care to make sure that continued. I can’t thank you enough for going above and beyond in ALL aspects, you all are top class ❤️
Like this a lot. Very clear and attractive yet covers you & your practice and sport. Certainly think 24hr message spot on.👍
