Great day at Jersey Fresh! I was fortunate enough to spend the day with my favorite Bajan (Barbados) mare Cami and Monique as they continue their qualifications for the Pan American Games in Lima Peru this summer. I was able to sneak away today from the practice in support of Barbados Eventing (actually it is my job as her veterinarian to preserve soundness, identify potential risks and early lamenesses, and address issues proactively before they become problems).

Monique and Cami are doing very well at the 3* level. The acceptance Jog and dressage are behind them, and the stadium jumping and cross-country are this coming Saturday. (Saddened that I cannot stay through Saturday as our daughter has her first official archery tournament in Richmond).

I know many of the extended Total Equine family watched last summer as the Barbados Eventing Team (and me as team veterinarian) took Bronze in the Caribbean and Central American Games in Bogota. These qualifiers are natural progression for qualification to the Pan Americans. So all of the new Barbados equestrian fans in Virginia can continue to watch this tiny island's big journey.

I will update this post Saturday afternoon when we get the full results of the competition.

Total Equine Veterinary Associates practice owner Dr. Jay Joyce recently released his annual State of the Practice announcement. Each year, he takes time for thoughtful reflection on the past year and an insightful look into changes for the coming year. This year, we had to release the announcement in two emails - there were just too many great topics to share to fit in one!

The highlights of 2018 included growing our team and expanding our services; achievements and accolades combined with education; protecting our young athletes and how we're helping to prevent veteran suicide.

We also included some pretty interesting tidbits, like how many syringes we used in 2018 and how many miles our veterinarian team added to our fleet of fully equipped trucks.

Read our 2018 Highlights Here: https://conta.cc/2Dvk9ch

The 2019 Road Map looks bright and promising. While we continue to expand our office team to bring you the best customer experience in the industry, we're also adding other great things like telemedicine services. In our efforts to keep your horses healthy for life, we're adding a vaccine to our fall package, continuing with our seminars, and have expanded our professional partnerships... oh, and Dr. Joyce is off to Peru this summer as well.

This is not easy for me to admit – but a cow intimidated me today – okay, I was a little scared.

Loose angry cow with big horns in Leesburg today. TEVA got the call from Loudoun County Animal Services and Leesburg Police to dart a loose cow in a downtown Leesburg neighborhood. A horned Dexter cow was loose. Last year, on the same farm, another Dexter cow mauled a handler and the handler was helicoptered to the ER. These can be mean, feral cows.

Anyway, TEVA has a dart gun and a vet (me) who spent time in Africa darting rhino, zebra, buffalo, lion and many other wildlife for research and disease control. Not to mention, local zebra that get loose, local bulls, and now, we can add loose Dexter cow to the list.

My trusted assistant (wife Paula) and I raced out to help before the cow got more agitated and ran around the city putting people and automobiles in danger. After some assessing and coordinating with the LCAS Officers, police, and the cows' owners, we decided darting and moving her back into the pasture or stock trailer was the best plan. All attempts to approach her closer than about 20 yards ended in her aggressively charging, then running away.

I wish I had a dart rifle with longer range instead of my dart pistol. Knowing that this cow would love to gore me, and I’m not as fast as I once was, Paula edged the vet truck closer to the cow while I crouched alongside the cab. Then at the nearest moment before the cow bolted away or at us, about 20 yards, I took the shot – and missed right over her back. Drat! Paula loaded another dart while the Dexter settled into another spot. Paula rolled up on her again, and pow, the second shot hit her fleshy hip.

She immediately started running to escape us (sorta funny to watch a slightly drunk cow run at full speed), then amazingly she jumped back into her pasture. She rocked back on her hind legs, and clumsily lobed herself over the wire fence (even funnier at this point). Even Paula commented that our horse Zuko could not clear that wire fence from the stand still. Regardless, the Dexter was now safely back in her pasture. 5 minutes later, she collapsed asleep when the sedative kicked in fully.

Mission accomplished. She was back in her pasture safely, no harm or damage to the general public, and we didn’t have to drag her into her pasture. Win-win-win.

Anyway, it was great to work again with LCAS and the Leesburg PD. Both have always had the best, most professional team members that help us vets in every way. Thank you LCAS and LPD for the combined success of getting Ms. Dexter home safely.

Fortunately, our only casualty of the morning cold. My trusted companion of more than 19 years. We listened to so many hearts together, so many colics, raspy lungs, gut sounds, even some pregnant housewife's baby bumps. Poor rubber stethoscope snapped in the bitter cold of 4 below. He was just 1 year from retirement. RIP old friend.

We Understand Horse Care is NOT Optional!

Horses provide us with great therapy... but for many furloughed government employees, horse therapy sometimes comes with a scary price during difficult times. We understand the uncertainty of today's world, and we don't want horse owners in our region delaying necessary or emergent care at the risk of a horse's health.

We all know horses don't choose the time of day or day of the week they present with a dreaded colic, a bleeding laceration, or an unresolving lameness issue requiring veterinary intervention. While we always waive emergency and weekend fees (for clients in good standing) to get your horse the care he needs without the added stress of additional fees, we are prepared to add an extra layer of sensitivity for our family of furloughed workers. We are willing to provide assistance and resources for clients affected by the shutdown and will discuss options directly with individual clients on a case by case basis, as no two horse care situations are alike. Expanded client benefits may include waiving late fees and interest charges, payment extensions, and discounted services. We're here to keep your horses healthy for life, and we care about our clients. Without your support, we couldn't continue doing what we love every day.

Call us, let's talk. Let's figure out how to keep your horse healthy for life with the least amount of stress to you!

Sincerely,
Dr. Jay Joyce and Your TEVA Team

We are a tad tardy in our warm welcome to our newest TEVA team member but none the less thrilled to have her on board! Please join us in welcoming Katie Cofer to our team! Our office team continues to expand to meet the daily needs of our clients and Katie is a great addition.

A little more about Katie: While horses have always been a part of her life, her formal training began at 18 when she was presented with an opportunity to work with the renowned horse behaviorist and trick trainer, Chantal Corminboeuf-Turvey. Through this year-long internship, Katie learned a lot about horse behavior and effective horse / trainer communications.

Upon completion of the internship, Katie returned home to a non-equine related job. One day a co-worker asked her to ride her fat, little-used, paint gelding named Chief. Katie was NEVER one to back down from a challenge, and enthusiastically leapt at the chance!

Her first ride on Chief resulted in being bucked off 5 times before the surly and clever Chief resigned himself to being tamed by his new rider. Four years later, Chief and Katie have an inseparable bond. They continue to perfect their liberty, work on small tricks, and strive for the goal of riding bridle-less.

Katie is thrilled to be part of the TEVA team. She has incorporated horses into every aspect of her life and is grateful to be surrounded by such knowledge people. Katie continues to expand her own knowledge of horse health and has goals of one day becoming a vet tech.

Please join us in welcoming Katie Cofer to TEAM TEVA!

Who goes out last night when nobody wants to? TEVA does! (Dr. H was closest) 24/7/365 and no after-hours emergency fee for regular clients. We are all in this together and that's how we demonstrate we are committed to you and your horses. Nasty lacerations like this one or Christmas colics, we're there.

TEVA is committed to protecting our people athletes too.

All 3 of TEVA's veterinarians have voluntarily taken and passed the US Equestrian SafeSport Training and Certification. This training isn't equestrian specific, but it's in response to problems encountered in several national-level sports programs regarding sexual misconduct and hazing.

We have all heard the stories about problems at the national level, and these problems probably don’t end there. This training helps coaches and trainers find positive ways to encourage young athletes in their training as well as to help recognize instances of inappropriate behaviors and how to deal with them. TEVA recommends that all local trainers, coaches, barn managers, vets, farriers, therapists and those for whom we entrust time with our children to certify to be able to recognize and appropriately respond to these issues as they arise.

Drs. Jay Joyce, Sallie Hyman, and Elizabeth Coppelman

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The SafeSport Trained course covers the following topics in-depth:

- Mandatory Reporting
- Sexual Misconduct Awareness Education
- Emotional and Physical Misconduct

US Equestrian requires training for all USEF Board of Directors, USEF Staff, USEF Licensed Officials, US Team Coaches & Technical Advisers, Chefs d'Equipe, Team Veterinarians, US Team Selectors, and Human Physio Therapists.

"US Equestrian is committed to creating and maintaining an equestrian community free of all forms of emotional, physical and sexual misconduct. US Equestrian members and participants have a mandatory duty to report suspected sexual misconduct to the U.S. Center for SafeSport.

The USEF SafeSport Policy and U.S. Center for SafeSport Code are aimed at protecting all participants in our sport."
