Holiday season is just around the corner and once again there have been many changes through the year. We want to wish everyone a very happy, healthy holiday season and hope it is safe and memorable for you and your family. The year started off with several client seminars graciously hosted by SNL Feeds with information ranging from snake bites to strategic deworming and information about the medications commonly used in equine veterinary medicine.

Dr. Hustace became certified in medical acupuncture and shared information about why it works and what conditions can be treated with it. Vaccination clinics were successful with a reminder of why we vaccinate our horses and how yearly exams by your veterinarian can help identify conditions so they are prevented or treated before becoming detrimental to your horse’s career and/or life. The annual barbecue was a great party with a performance by the kids of Horsemanship Headquarters kicking off the night. Milburn Equine and Boeringer Inglheim provided a fantastic tri-tip dinner and Clyde Burchell performed western music as people visited and danced the night away.

In October, Jaime and Erik got married and what a celebration it was! Family and friends came from as far away as England, New Zealand and Australia to rejoice with this couple as they start their lives together. With this new step in Dr. Hustace’s life, there will be some changes to her schedule so she can be with her husband in Montana. The plan is for her to be available for appointments 7-14 days per month. A schedule will be set in advance and posted on the website (www.sierranevadalah.com). Emergency services will be provided when she is in Nevada. We will continue to be available by phone at all times so appointments can be scheduled and if you do have an emergency when Dr. Hustace is in Montana, another veterinarian will be available. Over the last year and a half we have tried to hire a veterinarian in order to provide non-stop service. This has not been a very easy task and we are continuing to try to hire someone. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to email (sierranevadalah@gmail.com) or call us (775)465-2150. We thank you for all of your support with our business. It has been and continues to be such a pleasure working with you and your animals.
