PSA Yakima Valley Equine Emergency services or lack thereof
Horse owners PLEASE read and SHARE
If you have horses and you have not used a veterinarian in the last ONE YEAR, you may not be able to obtain emergency services.
I received a record number of emergency calls over the Christmas
weekend. It will likely be the same over this next weekend which is New Years. PLEASE call your veterinarian and ask if they will b e taking your call if you have an emergency, I can NOT cover the entire valley's problems. IF your horse has not been seen in the last year by your veterinarian, you may not have an active Client/Veterinarian/Patient relationship.
If you are unable to reach a veterinarian in your area, please look in the neighboring areas, Ellensburg and Tri Cities, where you may have to take your horse. Please so NOT wait to arrange to have a trailer available. Serious cases may be referred to WSU or OSU or PILCHUCK>
PLease share this so you are not left without care.
