Cedarbrook Veterinary Care

Cedarbrook Veterinary Care It's all about the horse! Dr. Hannah Mueller is a 2004 graduate from Oregon State University, College of Veterinary Medicine (view her resume here).
(27)

She has loved, cared for, ridden and trained horses for most of her life; horses are her passion. Before becoming a veterinarian, she gained experienced as a veterinary assistant, horse trainer, and farrier. During veterinary school, Dr. Hannah focused on equine sports medicine, lameness and advanced equine dentistry. After graduation from veterinary school, Dr. Hannah worked first as an associate

veterinarian, then in December of 2004, she started what was then known as Evergreen Holistic Veterinary Care - Equine based out of Monroe, WA. Dr. Hannah continued her studies of herbs and physical therapy and became certified in veterinary acupuncture in 2005 and chiropractic in 2006. Dr. Hannah discovered her gift of hands-on healing as she mastered these two modalities. Dr. Hannah strives to provide the best care possible for her patients and believes her unique holistic approach allows her to do so. Dr. Hannah has a solid foundation in sports medicine and lameness. This, along with her training in acupuncture, chiropractic, stretch exercises, massage techniques and other hands on healing modalities, allows Dr. Hannah to rehabilitate horses to their fullest potential. She excels in rehabilitating horses with lameness, neck and back injuries as well horses with pain related behavioral problems. While Dr. Hannah continues to offer farm calls, she has now added a rehabilitation center for haul-in appointments and short or long-term boarding with rehabilitation packages. Dr. Hannah believes in following holistic principles not only in her practice but also in her daily life. She feels that stewardship to animals, the environment, and to her community is a key element of holistic living. She has a driven, passionate desire to make a difference to all the animals in her care. Because of this passion and the need to give back, Dr. Hannah established a non-profit rescue rehabilitation fund with American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF) Cedarbrook Fund. She feels this is her way to give back and to be able to look back over the long years of her life and know that she made a difference to equines and made an impact in regards to the humane treatment of animals. To join her efforts please visit: https://www.vccfund.org/forms/donation-form/?ref=1882&company=Cedarbrook+Veterinary+Care

Dr. Hannah also enjoys giving talks for Cedarbrook's Educational Series and teaching veterinary and veterinary technician students how to perform veterinary procedures while providing veterinary care and rehabilitation for rescue horses. She enjoys teaching equine yoga and stretch classes as well as bodywork workshops for horses through Cedarbrook Veterinary Care. Dr. Hannah resides in Monroe, Washington with her family as well as her dog, cat and horses. She enjoys hiking, biking and of course, riding.

**A call for raffle/silent auction items **

With the Summer Solstice Music and Art Fest 2023 fast approaching I am putting together a small raffle/silent auction fundraiser to have in the Cedarbrook booth at the event for our Cedarbrook Veterinary Care Benevolence Fund. In the days of NWESC we had a whole team to help fundraise for our horse rescue efforts, now without NWESC I haven’t done a good job of keeping up with this and our benevolence fund is dwindling. This fund allows me to discount and donate veterinary care to local horse rescue organizations and other case by case horses in need. Please let me know if you have items to donate, horse related or not! Thanks 🙏

Save the date for Cedarbrook Farms' annual summer solstice music and art festival! Confirmed musical guests (more TBA): *Nobody's Peach! *Daisy Wrench! *Eric Mueller! *Hannah Duffy! Bring your family and friends! Starting at noon, music from 1-7pm. There'll be yard games and flower crowns and photos with a flower pony, food and more! Got an instrument? Jam with us into the night! More details forthcoming--we've got a potential market of local makers & artists in the works as well as some other fun stuff. Come celebrate the long summer days with us!

It's all about the horse!

In addition to what the AAEP suggests, haul in appointments are also greatly appreciated! Hauling in allows me to see several more horses in a day than I could see by doing farm calls and let’s me prioritize farm calls for senior horses who truly can’t haul. Thank you for your understanding!

Have you been waiting longer than usual for an open appointment with your veterinarian or been unable to access after-hours services for your horse? The shortage of equine veterinarians in the U.S. is likely the cause. Many veterinary practices have too few horse doctors to service all their clients.

Why? Only about 6% of new veterinary graduates annually enter equine practice. After five years, 50% of these young veterinarians leave for small animal practice or quit veterinary medicine altogether. The primary reasons are the personal demands of the profession and equine practice’s lower starting salaries. Many new veterinarians begin their career with more than $200,000 in student loan debt, making an equine position with lower compensation often unthinkable. When financial concerns are combined with the always present demands of emergency coverage, many equine veterinarians choose to leave for a healthier way of life.

The good news is that the AAEP along with private veterinary practices and veterinary schools are addressing the pain points which have led to the current crisis. But the solution is complex and will require the support and collaboration of every person in the equine industry — including horse owners. As we work to improve the profession for current and future veterinarians, you have a huge role to play in the much-needed transformation of equine practice. Horse doctors look forward to working together with you for the good of the horse and the sustainability of veterinary care!

Boarding at Cedarbrook Farms ~ $950/month

Boarding at Cedarbrook Farms is unique! We are not just your typical boarding barn; we specialize in senior horse care, retirement board, high needs horses, rehabilitation cases, and boarders seeking holistic horse keeping. Our boarders come here because they are seeking consistent, well managed, loving and professional level care for their horses. They appreciate that Dr. Hannah is continually observing their horses through her expert peripheral vision and assessing their health and wellbeing. This oversight allows early identification of any potential problems leaving our boarders with complete peace of mind whether they are able to be here or not.

Our facility is set up with a holistic approach in mind for your horse’s best interest in order to meet their emotional and physical needs 24x7. We utilize herd turnout (when appropriate) and horses are housed year-round in matted loafing sheds with large, attached mud free paddocks in order to avoid having horses stalled or confined. We do have hospital stalls available in the barn through Cedarbrook Veterinary Care’s rehabilitation program for horses needing short term stall rest. We also offer seasonal pasture or track paddock turnout to keep your horse turned out as much as possible and still avoid mud and maintain healthy pastures. The track systems allow horses to move freely around the perimeter of their pastures and simulates pasture turnout while the pasture is being rested. The track paddock system is also ideal for horses that have dietary restrictions which prohibit or limit pasture access (insulin resistance, laminitis, Cushing’s disease, obesity, EPSM, etc) as they allow turnout without the access to pasture grass. We also utilize slow feeder haynets and nibblenets to simulate 24hr access to feed and natural grazing while limiting the rate of consumption depending on your horses’ needs.

We have both indoor and outdoor shared riding spaces for you and your horse including a 70x130’ covered riding arena, pastures, and a 40-acre trail system. We welcome outside trainers to come for lessons and clinics and outside horses are allowed to haul in for a fee.

Boarders and their families enjoy the park like setting of the farm and the wooded trails. We strive to provide a safe and positive environment to meet your horse’s individual needs including custom nutritional plans with veterinary oversight, good communication, and participation in our Equine Facilitated Mental Health and Learning Program.

If you are personally interested in participating in activities and events on the farm, we will find opportunities that you will enjoy onsite at Cedarbrook Farms. And, of course, we have an awesome barn cat named Potter!

Please call (360) 794-9255 or email [email protected] to inquire about joining our Cedarbrook Farms family!

Heat wave! 🌞Prepare now for the upcoming heat wave- make sure your horses have extra water, clean and fresh. It is also helpful to give electrolytes starting the day before, during and a day after the heat wave. Misters and fans can be set up or hose off your horse as needed to help keep them cool. Also, avoid trailering, exercising, and stressful events to help avoid heat stroke. A normal temperature for a horse should be between 98-101.

Hi All,

Did you know Cedarbrook Farms has its own Dog Agility Park? Did you know you can schedule it for your own personal use or bring friends and rent the space together? Well, it’s true…we do!!!

As we are getting into the warmer weather and we are all getting outside and enjoying playing with our canine (or feline) partners here is the perfect opportunity. Our agility course is a fenced in location complete with multiple single jumps, A-frame, dog walk, tunnel, teeter and newly added weave poles!

Costs are $15 for 30 minutes or $30 for 1 hour. For more than one individual/dog you can add friends by choosing a group session. For each group session there is an "Add On" feature that allows you to add additional people. Each is for one person, add up to as many as 5 and bring your friends! Scheduling and payment are online through Acuity scheduling. Here is the link: https://app.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php?owner=18333212

Whether you’re getting ready for a competition or just want to play this is a great location to enjoy!

Check out our other facility rentals: Theraplate - vibrational therapy treatment modality (equine or canine) and our Covered Roundpen Practice Arena - 60ft with sand footing and well lit. Great for those rainy PNW days.

Urgent! Covid19 Update and what the Shelter in Place order means for us:

On Friday, March 20, 2020, Governor Inslee “prohibited medical and dental practices from providing health care services, procedures, and surgeries that, if delayed, are not anticipated to cause harm to the patient within the next three months.” This is subject to our judgement on a case by case basis.
Today, March 23, 2020, Governor Inslee “issued an Executive Order directing all residents immediately to heed current State public health directives to stay home, except as needed to maintain continuity of operations of essential critical infrastructure sectors and additional sectors as the State Public Health Officer may designate as critical to protect health and well-being of all Washingtonians.
In accordance with this order, the Governor has designated the following list of “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers” to help state, local, tribal, and industry partners as they work to protect communities, while ensuring continuity of functions critical to public health and safety, as well as economic and national security.”
Thankfully, we are included in the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers list:
“Healthcare/Public Health: Workers supporting veterinary hospitals and clinics”

Public service announcement: There is a lot that we don’t yet know about Covid19. You are my community and I care about each and every one of you. I have been researching Covid19 extensively and while the information (and my opinion on it) changes daily, I feel it is important for me to share my thoughts with you. As you probably already know, if there was an award for keeping my vet truck the cleanest and most sanitized I would probably win it. Everything that comes off the truck gets sanitized before going back on the truck, always has, always will. Believe me, it has saved me from unknowingly spreading Strangles among other things multiple times over my last 16 years as a veterinarian. I do it because I can and because I care. With Covid19 there is a lot of speculation still, some evolving facts, some things presented as facts but are actually still unknown. I believe it is best to plan for the worst and hope for the best. Here is the worst case scenario (speculative, not fact):

-Covid19 can incubate for 2-14 days or possibly up to 30 days
-You can have Covid19, be completely asymptomatic, and spread it without knowing it.
-Covid19 can remain in the air in closed air spaces for up to 4 hours after an infected person has left the area
-Covid19 can infect you through your eyes by air contact without you even touching your eyes
-Covid19 can remain viable on metal or plastic for up to 9 days
-Covid19 can get into your hair or onto your clothes from respiratory droplets
-If you get it once, you may be able to get it again and it could be worse the second time
-Dogs can test positive for Covid19 but cannot get sick or spread it; However, it came from other animals, and dogs/cats/horses etc all have their version of corona viruses. This is an emerging virus and may evolve over time. Animals can carry it on their fur/skin just like door handles etc can carry it.

So what do we do? Prevention, prevention, prevention!

-Pray for a safe and effective vaccine ASAP
-Stay home as much as possible
-Covering your cough decreases the distance respiratory droplets can travel, but a mask will contain it even better. Cover your cough/cough into your elbow and wear a mask as much as possible anytime you are in proximity to other people. If everyone was doing this, we would reduce the spread of Covid19 significantly. If you do not have a mask, a home-made mask, scarf, or bandana face covering is acceptable, you will not be able to buy a mask at this time as they are needed at the hospitals. Please note the masks are not to keep you from getting Covid19 (unless you happen to have a properly fitting N95 mask) but rather are to keep you from spreading it if you have it unknowingly. -Do not go into closed air spaces with other people. Have your groceries delivered to your home, do not interact with the delivery person, and sanitize them before bringing them into your house. 6’ distance is not nearly far enough if droplets remain in the air for 4 hours.
-If you must be in proximity to other people wear eye protection such as goggles or even glasses.
-Gloves are easier to sanitize than your hands- wear gloves if you have them and sanitize them repeatedly, use proper sterile glove technique, turn them inside out when you are done and wash your hands thoroughly afterwards. If you don’t have exam gloves, use your winter gloves or mittens and wash them immediately upon returning home.
-Shower and change/wash your clothes immediately upon returning home.
-Sanitize your shoes before entering your house or leave them on the porch.
We believe that safely providing veterinary care to our patients is essential during this pandemic. My animals are valuable members of my family, and I know yours are as well; we will make sure our patients get the care they need. I have been and will continue to work in a mask, eye goggles, and gloves and I have improved PPE coming in hopefully 2-3 weeks.
-Take your temperature multiple times a day, if it starts to go up, quarantine yourself from your family members and have them thoroughly sanitize your house immediately.
-Keep your pets indoors unless on leash/away from other people, do not pet other people’s animals.
-If you are short on supplies, please let me know, we may be able to help.


Telemedicine: We are offering Telemedicine appointments! You will need to be able to video chat with me (such as Facetime, Skype or Zoom) or send photos/videos for the appointment. Telemedicine appointments will be scheduled through the office as regular appointments are. An active VCPR is required by state law (Veterinary-client-patient relationship) which means I have to have seen the patient within 1 year. There is some leniency in the law for “operations with several animals such as encountered at farms” (we can thank the animal agriculture industry for this), so if I have had “medically appropriate and timely visits to the premises where the animal(s) are kept” that qualifies as an active VCPR for all of the animals on site. This is a grey area but gives us some flexibility for barns where I have examined one horse within the year but not all of the horses within the year and have been on site where I could have visually seen all of the horses at that time.

Cedarbrook Farms rules for Dog/Cat appointments and Horse haul-ins:
-To keep this space safe and Covid19 free I ask that you take your temperature frequently and stay home if you are sick or have potential exposure.
-Do not exit your vehicle until we have asked you to.
-Remain in your vehicle at all times or you must wear a mask and gloves while you are outside of your vehicle. If you do not have a mask, a home-made mask, scarf, or bandana face covering is acceptable, you will not be able to buy a mask at this time as they are needed at the hospitals. Please note the masks are not to keep you from getting Covid19 (unless you happen to have a properly fitting N95 mask) but rather are to keep you from spreading it if you have it unknowingly.
- Stay at least 10’ away from others at all times. This will make it difficult for procedures that usually require horses to be held by their owners such as dental floats, blood work, chiropractic and acupuncture treatments, etc as you will not be able to handle your horse for me. However many horses may do fine with these procedures without you handling them. I’m game to try and have been perfecting new handling while vetting techniques this past week ;).
-Use the sanitizer spray bottles that are at each gate/doorway/Theraplate/bathroom- spray anything that you touch and also spray your gloves frequently, make sure to spray enough into your hands to also disinfect the spray bottles that you have touched. The sanitizer spray requires a 5 minute wet contact time to be effective (so do most hand sanitizers by the way). Stay out of the barn as much as possible and only use the bathroom if you absolutely can’t wait.
-Eye protection is recommended but optional. With masks and a 10’ distance you should be safe but there is a lot we don’t know, please stay home if you are concerned or come at your own risk.
-The usual: Do not touch your face without sanitizing before and after. Cough into your elbow with your mask.

Horses: Please unload your horse and tie them to the trailer only after we let you know you can exit your vehicle. If you don’t have a mask/gloves, I can load/unload your horse for you (please schedule a farm call if your horse is a difficult loader). Once tied and you have stepped away I can approach your horse for treatment. We will decide at the time of the appointment where to do the treatment (in the barn, arena, outside) depending on the weather and the procedure needed.
Dogs: We have an X-Pen set up in the dog treatment room with a blanket covering the floor. The blanket will be changed out between dogs and the X-Pen will be disinfected. Weather permitting we can keep the treatment room door open so you can watch the visit from your car and we can chat. If you would like to watch from your car please park in the marked area at least 10’ from the treatment room door.

Farm calls/House calls: If you can’t come to us, I can still come to you (dogs/cats included; farm call fee applies). We encourage all farms to follow similar rules to what we have place below at Cedarbrook Farms. I will be wearing appropriate PPE at all farm calls and encourage you to do the same. A 10’ social distancing is required. For small animals, I will need an open air area with a blanket or dog bed such as a porch, open garage, or front yard.


The information above is in flux and will change with more information and time so keep in touch. Please know that we are here for you and we care about each and every one of you! Please be patient with us as we navigate working from home as much as possible- we are figuring out a system but it is a work in process and currently does require you to leave a voicemail for us to get the message and our return calls may come from a blocked number. (Email will reach us more quickly!) Stay in touch and let me know what we can do to help. Thank you for your consideration and taking this seriously during these challenging times as we all work together to keep each other safe and our pet's healthy!

Air hugs and be well!

Good morning, I'm wondering if you allow us humans to stay with our dogs during a Chiro/acupuncture appointment, or are you having us wait outside? My dog has seen you before
Come and join us!

Wildtype EHV-1 detected in one Snohomish County horse, quarantine order issued.

The Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) has quarantined a Snohomish County facility near Arlington after a single laboratory-verified case of equine herpes virus EHV-1, non-neuropathogenic strain, was detected there.

This “wildtype” strain of EHV-1 tends to be less contagious than the neuropathogenic type.

On August 3, 2018 one horse at the facility tested positive for the virus. This horse is isolated on the premises and WSDA has quarantined the facility. Test results for a second, suspect horse are pending. The quarantine will last until 14 days after WSDA confirms no further signs of the disease and the horses test negative.

The facility has cooperated fully with the quarantine order and is working to ensure strict biosecurity measures are in place. WSDA is tracing movements of horses off the premises and may issue additional quarantine orders if needed.

Given the infectious nature of EHV-1, WSDA urges horse owners to follow the recommendations below.

Watch your horse for signs of possible infection such as:

· Fever of 102.5 F or higher

· Discharge from the eyes or nose

· Respiratory symptoms

· Swelling of the limbs

· Spontaneous abortions

· Neurological signs such as unsteady gait, weakness, urine dripping, lack of tail tone and recumbency.

Check your horse’s temperature twice daily, ideally first thing in the morning and last thing at night. Also, check before administering medications as some can lower body temperature, masking fever.

Notify your veterinarian immediately if you detect any of the symptoms above. Your veterinarian may wish to take nasal swabs for virus detection or blood samples for serological evidence of exposure to EHV-1.

When the virus is detected, WSDA and local veterinarians work closely with affected communities to ensure the best biosecurity standards are practiced. For more tips on keeping your own horses safe through good biosecurity practices, please see the WSDA web site for Equine Biosecurity.

The time between exposure and illness from EHV-1 varies from two to 14 days. By self-quarantining animals with possible symptoms, practicing good biosecurity and contacting your veterinarian as soon as you suspect possible symptoms, you can help prevent the spread of this virus.

The Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) has quarantined a Snohomish County facility near Arlington after a single laboratory-verified case of equine herpes virus EHV-1, non-neuropathogenic strain, was detected there.

This “wildtype” strain of EHV-1 tends to be less contagious than the neuropathogenic type.

On August 3, 2018 one horse at the facility tested positive for the virus. This horse is isolated on the premises and WSDA has quarantined the facility. Test results for a second, suspect horse are pending. The quarantine will last until 14 days after WSDA confirms no further signs of the disease and the horses test negative.

The facility has cooperated fully with the quarantine order and is working to ensure strict biosecurity measures are in place. WSDA is tracing movements of horses off the premises and may issue additional quarantine orders if needed.

Given the infectious nature of EHV-1, WSDA urges horse owners to follow the recommendations below.

Watch your horse for signs of possible infection such as:

· Fever of 102.5 F or higher
· Discharge from the eyes or nose
· Respiratory symptoms
· Swelling of the limbs
· Spontaneous abortions
· Neurological signs such as unsteady gait, weakness, urine dripping, lack of tail tone and recumbency.
Check your horse’s temperature twice daily, ideally first thing in the morning and last thing at night. Also, check before administering medications as some can lower body temperature, masking fever.

Notify your veterinarian immediately if you detect any of the symptoms above. Your veterinarian may wish to take nasal swabs for virus detection or blood samples for serological evidence of exposure to EHV-1.

When the virus is detected, WSDA and local veterinarians work closely with affected communities to ensure the best biosecurity standards are practiced. For more tips on keeping your own horses safe through good biosecurity practices, please see the WSDA web site for Equine Biosecurity.

The time between exposure and illness from EHV-1 varies from two to 14 days. By self-quarantining animals with possible symptoms, practicing good biosecurity and contacting your veterinarian as soon as you suspect possible symptoms, you can help prevent the spread of this virus.
