Our consultation area extends beyond the Santa Ynez Valley to provide advanced medical care for difficult cases. Referral is required for this service, and a team approach is followed, with your regular veterinarian playing a pivotal role. A thorough history and examination are starting points for referred cases. State-of-the-art diagnostic equipment is utilized in examinations formerly limited to referral hospitals. Appointments may be scheduled at your barn or at one of several clinic locations. Please contact us by phone or email to request a consultation.
In depth evaluations and telephone consultations are available to veterinarians. With experience in general practice, academia, and private referral practice, Dr. Smith is well-versed in both the common and uncommon disease presentations. My goal is to support colleagues in the diagnosis and treatment of challenging cases with unwavering professionalism. Many veterinarians choose to attend the appointment with a referred patient, and this is always welcomed.
Consultation for the farm/ranch, racetrack or equine facility is available to assist in the control, diagnosis, and prevention of infectious disease. Using real world logistics, we work with you and your veterinarian to develop biosecurity protocols and disease mitigation plans which limit the spread of contagious disease. Strangles, EHV, Influenza, Salmonella and Rotavirus outbreaks are common causes for consultation on the farm, ranch, racetrack, or showground.
