Feast or famine

When it rains…it pours.
Like most things in life, being a large animal vet typically runs all or nothing. There are times of the year that are naturally busier due to weather and life cycles. Spring time is always busy and we usually have our hands full with spring vaccinations, coggins tests, foalings, calvings, kiddings, lambings, colics and founders (due to the lush green grass growth) and then rebreeding all those females. People are out riding more and everyone is loving the great weather. Not to mention that when bad things happen, they always seem to happen in a rash […]

When my phone rings

By |March 19th, 2014|

My phone rings all the time. Sometimes it rings because there is an emergency, or because someone thinks it is an emergency but turns out not to be, or someone wants to schedule an appointment, or it is just the wrong number.

For anyone out there that does not know how our phone system at Bear Creek Mobile Vet works, during the day if you call the main line (704-986-0000) it rings in the office. However, at the end of the day, when the office person leaves, they transfer the phone to the doctor’s cell phone. At that point, any […]

Quiet time in the pool

By |March 19th, 2014|

As most of you know ,I am a very busy person at work and at home. It has always been a struggle to balance taking care of everyone else (and their animals) and myself. I’ve never really made time for myself. My physical health and mental well-being are always taking the proverbial back seat. The years have taken their toll on my body, especially my back. Pulling calves and kneeling under horses to sew up cut legs and wrestling with goats and other critters had me nearly crippled and living on ibuprophen, caffeine and B vitamins just to keep […]

Are you prepared for a disaster? Part I

By |March 12th, 2014|

WOULD YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO?

What if your barn caught fire? Or there was a hurricane or flood in our area?
What about a disease outbreak that affected your animals? (Foot and Mouth disease-cattle, pigs, goats, etc ; or Vesicular Stomatitis-horses, cattle, goats, pigs, etc.)
Most people try hard not to think about these things happening to them, but in the event that something like this did happen, would you be able to handle the effects on your farm? Would you be able to assist your neighbors or your community as well?
Being prepared isn’t something that just happens. It is an […]

How to Build a Go Bag

By |March 12th, 2014|

What goes in my Go-Bag?
First, there is no perfect answer to this question. What suits one person or family might not suit yours. What is appropriate for a person in Alaska, wouldn’t apply in the deserts of Arizona. We wil share some great ideas for items for your bag below, but you also need to keep individual factors in mind when planning.
Keep these thoughts in your mind when you plan your go-bag:

What is appropriate for the climate where I live?
What is appropdiate for the climate I’m going to? (If you’re planning to travel a significant distance.)
How many family members […]

What to do in the event of an emergency?

By |March 12th, 2014|

Help! What do I do?
This is a common enough event if you have horses, but the information in this article will work for just about any species.
Cuts (aka Lacerations) and Hemorrhage
Most people see blood and they panic. The truth is, there is rarely a need to do so. Here are some good rules to live by.

Location, location, location-the location of the bleeding determines the danger of that bleeding. The farther away from the main portion of the body, the less likely it is to be life threatening. Larger vessels like the aorta, jugular vein, carotid, femoral artery, axillary artery […]

Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA)

By |March 12th, 2014|

What is EIA?
This disease is something most horse owners only know in relation to the test we use to identify the disease, aka Coggins test. That term is thrown around quite a bit but it surprises me how little people actually know about this disease. If you own horses then you should familiarize yourself with the ins and outs of EIA. Here are some relevant facts about EIA that you may not know.

EIA virus is closely related to the HIV-1 virus that causes AIDS in humans. The disease is transmitted by biting flies (usually the tabinus horse flies and […]
