What's New at PVH



Gastric Ulcer and Scoping Clinic set for August 12-13

On August 12 and 13, PVH will be hosting an educational seminar and scoping clinic for equine gastric ulcer syndrome. The seminar will help horse owners recognize the symptoms and learn how to treat and prevent ulcers.

The educational seminar will be Tuesday, August 12 at 6:30 p.m. in Rose Bud (exact location to be determined). The scoping lab will be held on Wednesday, August 13 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m at our clinic. There are a number of symptoms that may indicate ulcers, but the only way to definitively diagnose this disorder is by a gastroscopy exam.

For more details and to RSVP, please call the clinic at 501-556-5355. Space is limited. The seminar and lab are sponsored by Merial and MWI Veterinary Supply.

PVH has a busy Spring

It was another very busy Spring at PVH. New foals and calving season have kept us running. We had a good breeding season with several successful embryo transfers.

We have seen a fair amount of illnesses so far this year so be sure to keep up with your annual vaccinations. Another problem that we have been seeing in more horses in our area every year is "Pigeon fever" also called Dryland Distemper. It tends to be more prevalent when the weather gets hot and dry. "Pigeon Fever" gets its name from swelling associated with abscesses in the horse's chest area, which makes it protrude resembling the breast of a pigeon. The first signs of the disease are abnormal swellings around the horse's chest or belly area. We recommend you check these areas at least twice a week as early detection is key to successful treatment. If you have any questions or concerns, please give us a call.

On the small animal side, we have been seeing a terrible flea and tick problem. We do have a product that is working very well called Nexgard. It is a chewable treat that prevents fleas AND ticks for 30 days We are offering a 10% discount on Nexgard for July and August! It is a prescription product so we do need to have seen your pet within the last year in order to prescribe it.

Good luck, Donna!

This April we said goodbye to one of our PVH family. Donna Horn started a new career in the oil and gas industry. She will be traveling around the country managing field offices for Circle K Construction. We still see her frequently and miss her daily! Good luck, Donna... we all love you!

2014 Equine Health & Hoof Fest

The Equine Health & Hoof Fest was a runaway success! Veterinarians, farriers, researchers and horse owners came together in January at Back Achers Ranch in Conway with one goal in mind — share information to help horses have healthier lives. This was the fourth year for the event, created by Paul Dorris Jr. of the Arkansas Horseshoeing School and Dr. Mike Pallone.Their vision is to make life better for horses by sharing information among different groups of equine practitioners. For more photos from the event, CLICK HERE.

Dr. Larry Snyders presented new research on stem cell therapy, which he believes will prove to be the ‘medicine of the future.’
