June-July Newsletter 2011


Hello everyone,

We apologise for the tardiness of our latest edition, as you're probably all aware we've been extremely busy since Dr Kylie's case of Hendra at Park Ridge. We'd like to say thank you to everyone for your messages of support, we truly appreciate the friendship we have found in our local horse community. Until a vaccine is developed, we all need to be armed with proper hygiene practices, as well as a general knowledge of the virus and its symptoms.

On a more cheerful note, Dr Kylie passed her specialt equine surgery exams, and has been honoured with a position amongst the small band of board-certified Australian equine surgeons. Go Kylie! She's looking forward to the completion of our surgery so she can begin to further-utilise her knowledge and aid the local equine population in more complicated surgical procedures again. 

To brush up on your knowledge of Hendra, check out our page on it. The DPI website also has many interesting links and you can get the latest updates on cases there. 

This newsletter features problems of the eye, a delicate organ which if showing any abnormailty, we treat as very urgent. With the recent wet weather, and consequential lush pasture, Dave had written on overweight horses and the problems this condition can result in.
