Allaround Equine Veterinary Care, Inc.
Articles & Testimonies
Now, as ambulatory equine veterinarian, I travel from farm to farm taking care of horses. although I cover a larger geographical area fro Amherst to Roanoke, and Fincastle to Smith Mountain Lake and Franklin County, I try to schedule farms visits in the same general location in one day. This isn't always possible when an emergency call comes I and I have to cancel appointments and go to another location to treat a critical horse. It ends up being a lot of time on the road in one day, but I usually have my dog with me which helps to pass some of the time.
A typical day consists of treating all types, ages and breeds of horses from wellness scare to sick or lame horses. I have state-of-the-art equipment, including digital radiography, which allows me to view x-rays immediately, helping to make a swift diagnosis and treatment plan. I also carry with me a digital ultrasound, an endoscope, ophthalmoscope and other equipment, My truck is packed with all types of medications. I specialize in lameness diagnostics and treatments, pre-purchase exams and ophthalmology, but treat all horses from young to geriatrics and sick horses.
I am the resident veterinarian at the famed
"Rose Hill Farm" in Bedford, Va.,(firstname.lastname@example.org/rosehillfarm) where I get to work & collaborate with and known as one of the best horsemen on the east coast Mr. Hunter L. King, with more then 50 years experience in the equine business.
Every day I am on the road to someone's farm is a good day. No matter if I am going for a routine visit or anticipating a serious or complicated case, it is a rewarding day because I get to help horses.
although I am at a farm to treat a horse, I also enjoy the owners and trainers I meet. I enjoy nice people and I am lucky to have many nice, caring and contentious clients that want to do the best for their horses.
I consider myself a fortunate person. I not only have a profession that I love. I also own a very nice show horse that I compete. Most Saturdays you'll find me at a horse show ring riding my horse. Right now we are successfully showing in the 3' Amateur Hunter division. Being an ambulatory equine veterinarian means working lots long days, but it is a unique and rewarding job the suits me well. I can't imagine any better profession.
