Cascadia Equine Veterinary Clinic

Cascadia Equine Veterinary Clinic Cascadia Equine Veterinary Clinic is a fully mobile equine veterinary practice serving the Willamette Valley and coast range of Oregon. Dr. Wickliffe first became interested in horses at the age of 13 through the Boy Scouts of America at the Butte Creek Scout Ranch in Silverton, Oregon.
(14)

This interest soon became a passion leading to his career path as an equine veterinarian. Dr. Wickliffe earned Bachelor of Science degrees from Oregon State University in Economics (1992) and Colorado State University in Equine Science (1998). During this time, Dr. Wickliffe had the opportunity to become the first student of the Colorado State University Farrier Program and went on to be a teacher’s assistant in that program. This led to the development of a successful farrier business. Dr. Wickliffe completed his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Colorado State University in 2002. After earning his DVM, Dr. Wickliffe worked in 3 large surgical equine veterinary hospitals with the ultimate goal of owning an equine focused veterinary practice. In the Fall of 2007, Dr. Wickliffe opened Cascadia Equine Veterinary Clinic. An ambulatory equine veterinary clinic based in Corvallis, OR. Cascadia Equine Veterinary Clinic is a 100% mobile practice designed exclusively for horses and focused on advanced equine dentistry, lameness, podiatry and preventative medicine. Dr. Wickliffe along with his wife Erin and daughter Addie, are happy to call the Willamette Valley their home.

Miller Quarter Horses

The saying is “it takes a village to raise a child”, however that is also true for this filly. This spring, I found this filly, early one morning when I went to do chores and check on mares. She was up and very spry, however her mother hemorrhaged after birth and died. Kyle came and loaded her into the trailer, and we obtained some mare colostrum from some friends. We tried two different nurse mares, one from a cousin, one from a friends.
So with neither mare loving “Hobo”, we were back to feeding foal replacer. I figured Hobo needed some company, so I thought she could live with Doris the Milk Cow. Next morning when Doris was milked, she only gave 4 litres, when she would usually give 8-10 litres per milking. Same thing that evening. We then caught Hobo In the act.... Doris loves Hobo. LOVES her immensely. If Hobo isn’t in her sight, you will hear Doris bellar for that filly. Weaning time is going to be hard on Doris the milk cow. First picture is from the first day we caught Hobo nursing, second picture is from today.

The autumn weather transition is just like spring in reverse and just like spring, our first instinct is to get our horses out on that beautiful green pasture. But, if not done properly, that luscious fall grass can cause more harm than good.

The beautiful Willamette Valley grass contains a large amount of sugar in both spring and fall. Horses turned out on these types of grasses are at risk of consuming large amounts of sugar and therefore at risk for certain health conditions.

Once the Smoke Clears: A Guide to Safely Start Working and Riding Your Horse

Learn more about safely returning your horse to work after being exposed to wildfire smoke. The article is written by Dr. Dawn Sherwood from Oregon State University. We are currently on day 11 of clean air in our area!

During wildfire events, horses are exposed to smoke and ash. Breathing in ash and particulates can be harmful, and caution should be taken to ensure horses are recovered before working and riding them. This publication provides useful tips and guidelines.

09/15/2020

Are you wondering when you can return to a normal exercise routine with your horse? It is imperative to give your horse adequate time to recover from smoke inhalation before returning to an exercise routine. Airway damage resulting from wildfire smoke takes between four to six weeks to heal. Horses should return to exercise no sooner than two weeks after wildfire smoke has completely dissipated. While it is very tempting to return to riding as soon as possible, doing so too early can provoke the condition, delay healing, and compromise your horses performance for several weeks to months.

RETURNING TO AN EXERCISE ROUTINE AFTER SMOKE HAS DISSIPATED:
*Ideally, provide four to six weeks before returning to an exercise routine.
Week 1 & 2: Provide two weeks off. Your horse can be turned out during this time.
Week 3 & 4: Hand walk for two weeks.
Week 5 & 6: Walk and trot in the saddle for two weeks.
Week 7: Return to a normal exercise routine.

Please call our office at 541-207-8308 with questions.

First, we would like to thank everyone who has provided additional help the last few days by hauling horses, providing hay and other materials as well as manpower to help get horses evacuated and in place on our property. Our new facility work this week may have been put on hold, but you, our community, are the reason why we are here and it is times like these that solidify our practice.

We have had a lot of questions regarding the smoke and ash from the surrounding wildfires. We thought we would put together some tips to help horse owners during this trying time.

Keep in mind, these conditions do not happen often and will hopefully dissipate in the coming days. Horses experience similar effects from smoke as we do. They could experience irritation in the eyes and respiratory tract and will have reduced lung function. The higher the concentration of particulates in the air means that there can be persistent cough, increased nasal discharge, wheezing and increased physical effort in breathing.

In order to help your horse, you can:

- Provide fresh, clean drinking water often and clean water buckets at least once per day
- To limit additional dust exposure, soak hay prior to feeding or provide dust-free hay when possible
- Provide at least 2 weeks once the smoke and ash have dissipated before getting back to normal exercise routine

If you have any questions or concerns, please give our office a call

Thank you so much Dr Chris! Herk can hold a jog for the first time in a couple years. It's obvious now that this was probably one of the first signs of arthritis setting in.
This clinic is open to horse owners and interested parties to audit for 20/day. This is a great learning opportunity to watch vets and farriers working together.
