Saliva-Based Tapeworm Test Available to U.S. Horse Owners

thehorse.com

The test is designed to detect evidence of tapeworms in horses' saliva and help guide dewormings.

Interesting new way of testing horses for intestinal parasites. Previous testing methods (ie fecal egg count) were limited to strongyles, but now with this saliva test we can accurately diagnose and treat horses with tapeworms. This will allow veterinarians and horse owners to accurately target horses with tapeworms, rather than just blanket treating all horses with a praziquantel based dewormer once or twice yearly! http://www.thehorse.com/articles/39471/saliva-based-tapeworm-test-available-to-u-s-horse-owners

You won’t find us working on non-equines very frequently... but when the patient is this adorable (and dressed for the holidays), she’s practically the size of a horse but sits calmly on the couch for acupuncture and laser, and the appointment is inside out of the cold, how could we say no?!? Please also notice the curious sister spying through the window, she’s equally as cute and almost equally as big! 🐶🐶

Our mobile office is officially parked for the holidays. 🎄 We will be back to seeing appointments next week on Wednesday December 27th. In the mean time, and as always, please contact your primary care veterinarian with any equine related emergencies. (Wish we were still looking at this beautiful holiday scene and those blue skies!)

Protect People, Pets, Pipes and Plants

wilco.org

Cold weather is anticipated to move into Central Texas this weekend with a chilly Christmas Day in the forecast. Before the cold weather arrives, Williamson County’s Office of Emergency Management urges residents to take actions to protect the 4 P’s: people, pets, pipes, and plants. People: Befo...

It's another beautiful day outside! Unfortunately a change to cold, wet weather is predicted over the next few days. Protect your horses by providing them fresh (unfrozen) water at all times, plenty of good quality hay, and access to shelter from wind and rain. http://www.wilco.org/Home/protect-people-pets-pipes-and-plants

Between appointments today, this elf is delivering holiday sweets to our local veterinary clinics. We appreciate all of the referrals we receive from our veterinary community and are also very grateful for the many wonderful veterinary practices where we can refer our patients for additional workup. It takes a village to keep our horses in tip-top shape and we are lucky to be part of this particular village. 🐴❤️👩🏼‍⚕️🐴

However, TCVM actually has four branches: acupuncture, herbal medicine, food therapy, and medical massage. These therapies can be used alone or combin...
