..Rhabdomyolysis; PSSM (EPSM); “Tying-Up”
In decades of practice, we have acquired knowledge of many aspects of animal care, some of which we wish to share with you, as the first observer of an animal’s behavior and appearance.
We hope that you will find these fact sheets both useful and informative.
Q. What species do you treat?
A. Our practice is limited to horses, camelids (llamas and alpacas), and small ruminants (sheep and goats). We do not treat pigs, cattle, or exotics. We provide small animal services (for dogs and cats) on a limited appointment basis: vaccination, heartworm testing, and at-home euthanasia.
Q. What geographic area do you cover?
A. We routinely go anywhere in El Dorado County from Pollock Pines west to the Sacramento County line and Folsom, as far north as Cool, Georgetown, Greenwood, and Kelsey, and as far south as Plymouth.
There are extra fees associated with appointments in Swansboro and Mosquito, upcountry of Georgetown as far as Volcanoville, Amador County south of Plymouth, Sacramento County west of Folsom, and Placer County.
Q. What Forms of payment do you accept?
A. We accept cash, checks, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and CareCredit. Payment is expected at time of service.
Q. What provision do you make for response to emergencies?
A. Emergency medicine is a focus of our practice. We are committed to being as available as we possibly can be to respond to emergencies. On most days (including weekends) there are two mobile units available, and we are ready, willing, able, and predisposed to reschedule an entire day’s routine appointments, if necessary, in order to provide prompt response to emergencies; for our own clients, as well as for neighboring practices, though we do give priority to our own established clients.
Emergency surcharges apply, and depend on the distance, urgency, degree of disruption of the normal schedule, and other factors.
