Telephone woes...resolved

Phone troubles the last few days due to some programming issues with Comcast have disrupted our ability to keep up with important communications.  We feel we've worked them out with an additional bonus of a new regional telephone number: 717-467-5757. Please accept our apologies and feel free to call our primary numbers 717-249-7771, 717-502-6742, and 717-467-5757.  We are always available via email (cvequineservice@gmail.com), or message us on Facebook.

FUO, maybe PHF?

FUO--Fever of Unknown Origin, is a common urgent call for me.  Consider common viral infections like flu or rhinitis, but more sinister is PHF: Potomac Horse Fever.  I've seen a few cases already this summer, and the PHF season (June through October) is just beginning.  http://www.merckvetmanual.com/mvm/digestive_system/intestinal_diseases_in_horses_and_foals/potomac_horse_fever.html

Young horses with acute, severe respiratory infections..

I'm increasingly seeing young horses with snotty noses, fevers and abnormal lung sounds...lungs with wheezes and clicks similar to older horses with heaves...These are young horses of training age, 2-4 years old, in multi-horse stables.  The older animals are not getting sick.  We'll be testing any new cases for equine rhinitis A virus infection as well as influenza and rhinopneumonitis.  A vaccine is available to help protect against equine rhinitis A virus....interested?
