Re: Veterinary Help With Cushings
To those who claim this groups advocates NOT using a vet, nothing could be further from the truth. I get chastised by members regularly for not wanting to involve my local vets in cases involving my client horses.
Unfortunately, we do not have a vet in our very rural area who prescribes to the current protocols involved with these diseases, but I have learned from this group to consult with them anyway. It is my hope that if I have enough success with this group maybe they will get on board. I have realized the necessity in consulting with a vet, regardless of their views if for no other reason that to protect both my and the owners legal position in the way we deliver care to the horse.
I have clients who have actually driven their horse(s) hundreds of miles away to find a vet they can work with. I would not have encouraged that if not for the strong encouragement of this group and Dr. Kellon.
