Get horses ready for fall/winter!
Fall and winter are right around the corner. Along with the cooler weather, this season also brings hazards for your horses — acorns and persimmons. Every year we treat multiple severe colics due to their ingestion. These colics are very hard to treat and are frequently fatal.
We often talk about “winterizing” your horse to get them prepared for the cold weather which requires them to burn extra calories to maintain body temperature. If your horse is underweight going into the winter months, it is extremely hard to maintain optimal body condition. We recommend a dental exam and a fecal test to check for internal parasites.We also recommend starting a fat supplement now if your horse is borderline underweight. Geriatric horses are prone to dental problems and usually require extra calories to maintain body condition.
PVH offers Stem Cell Therapy
PVH offers a new era of medical treatment in regenerative medicine. We are able to harvest, process and administer stem cell therapy to your horse, dog or cat. The stem cells are derived from your animal’s own fat. Because the cells come from the animal's own tissue, the risk for adverse reactions is minimal. Stem cellls are administered by IV or local administration directly into the site of the problem.
