⭐ CLIENT HIGHLIGHT ⭐

Our youth riders are on FIRE as the season begins to wrap up. We love all our patients and sharing in client successes, but being able to take care of the great horses that take care of their youth riders is really something special. 💕

Here's a report from Kristy McArthur: "I have to give these two a shout-out. These daughters of mine have worked their tails off this year and I couldn't be prouder of them both. Cass ended up winning the 1D high point at the Cinch It Up Series and Ches came in a close second on her sister's heels for the year but won the final jackpot on Sunday. Both horses have been working hard as well, some ups and downs but that's horses. The friends they have made and the people they interact with makes me a proud mom too, always lending a hand or a smile."

& we are proud of those two outstanding horsewomen too. Thank you for sharing Kristy, and for having Energy Equine as a big part of your team. ❤️

The clinic has been fielding multiple calls about equine infectious anemia (EIA) and we thought it would be prudent to share some information regarding the virus:

➡️ What is equine infectious anemia?

Equine infectious anemia (EIA) is a potentially fatal viral disease affecting horses and other members of the Equidae family, such as donkeys and mules. EIA-infected animals remain carriers of the virus for life and can be a source of infection for other animals. There is no human health risk associated with EIA, and unfortunately there is no vaccine or cure for EIA.

➡️ How is EIA transmitted and spread?

Transmission of EIA occurs mainly through the transfer of contaminated blood from one animal to another. Insects, such as horse flies, stable flies and deer flies, are the main culprit. EIA survives for less than four hours on fly mouthparts and research has shown that the further away a potential new host horse is, the more likely the fly is to return to its original victim.

Transmission can also occur through blood-contaminated objects like needles and syringes if used on multple animals, and can be transmitted through the semen of an infected stallion.

Residual blood in a used syringe and needle can be significantly greater than what is carried by insects, and the virus is viable for at least four days, in comparison with the four hours it is viable on the fly.

➡️ What are the signs and symptoms of EIA?

The incubation period is generally 2-4 weeks but can range from 1 week to 3 months. Horses may show symptoms of lethargy, weakness and reluctance to eat. They may have intermittent fevers, become jaundice, show swelling of the extremities, weight loss, loss of coordination and small hemorrhages under the tongue and eye. Some die during the acute phase of the virus. Many horses temporarily recover from the severe stage of EIA and then often relapse with similar, but less severe, symptoms within 2-3 weeks. Episodes are often associated with the use of steroid drugs or with periods of stress such as hard work. Infected animals remain carriers of the virus for life.

➡️ How is EIA diagnosed?

A blood test known as a coggins test.

➡️ Why is EIA so serious?

EIA is a "reportable disease" under the Health of Animals Act. This means that all suspected cases must be reported to the CFIA. If a horse tests positive for EIA the CFIA places movement restrictions on all premises on which EIA infected horses are found. All horses on the premises are tested for the disease. Sadly, any horses confirmed to be infected with EIA are ordered to be euthanized.

➡️ What can you do to protect against EIA?

The good news is that we as horse owner's can do a lot to protect against EIA - it all comes down to biosecurity, surveillance and vector control!

- Use strict hygiene and biosecurity practices when vaccinating or collecting blood samples from horses
- Use disposable needles and syringes, and do not use the same needle on more than one equine
- Do not insert a used needle or syringe into a multidose bottle
- Do not reuse intravenous (IV) tubing
- Ensure any equipment that is used and could be contaminated with a horse's blood is properly cleaned and sterilized after each use
- Implement insect control measures
- Routinely test your horses
- Isolate all new horses on site until they test negative for EIA

➡️ EIA is a terrible virus, with a horrible outcome. However, thanks to surveillance and testing within populations and at the Canadian border, the occurrence of EIA in tested horses in Canada is extremley low. We reccomend that horse owner's remain vigilient with biosecurity protocols and vector control and if they have any further questions or concerns, to always reach out to their veterinarian.

Woooooo thank you so much to everyone at Energy Equine for these amazing tickets!!! GO FLAMES!!!
Really like energy equine veterinary services.
Knowing Dr. Chad Hewlett for over 20 yrs is like having known Garth Brooks before he released "The Dance". He is a rock star and he has put together one heck of a crew!! Simply the Best!
THANK YOU🙏 Energy Equine for being at the West Central Regional 4-H horse show at the Red Deer Westerner. It was a busy, hot weekend and you were there no matter what for the kids and their horses! Truly amazing and we appreciated that💕
We would like to extend a huge thank you to Dr. Chad Hewlett of Energy Equine for donating his time to come up and do a lecture and dissection on the equine hoof and lower limb. We all learned so much and got to see first hand how the hoof, tendons, and ligaments play such a vital role in soundness. And also thank you to Kris and Greg for organizing it and Parkland Equestrian Center for hosting it at their beautiful facility. Heather Archer
Dad & I are joining in the energy field as you celebrate your wonderful clients/owners. We’re grateful for Energy Equine’s health & wellness mission. ❤️🎄❤️
Just wanted to say how much I appreciate a follow up call this am. Spent a long night with a colic, that luckily only needed some veterinarian advice. But I felt like Equine Energy was at my back and there if things got worse. Always hope we don’t need you but sure glad you’re there when we do!
Thank you Everyone at Energy Equine for hosting a fantastic Stampede Breakfast, it was Excellent!!
Feliz and I would like to thank everyone at #BackOnTrackCanada and #EnergyEquine for the awesome mesh sheet that we won at Saturday’s lecture series 😊. As some of the people in attendance know, Feliz has been diagnosed with Temporohyoid Osteoarthropathy, and is going for surgery on Wednesday morning. We have been borrowing a friend’s BoT sheet since her diagnosis at New Years, and I had “put it out to the universe” that she could really use one of her own, so we were incredibly happy that the universe answered in such dramatic fashion!
This was at its worst just over 2 weeks ago.
