Spring time is coming and it a beautiful time in North Central Florida! Unfortunately it is also the time for mosquitos, heaves and laminitis. Make sure that you a ready for the transition in weather and please call if you have any questions.
Although we are currently still waiting on a truck topper/tool box to become fully functional, Dr. Barabas is available for Acupuncture Consultation/ appointments.
Acupuncture and Herbal treatments can be an extremely helpful tool to manage heaves cases. Herbal and acupuncture therapy can help decrease the dosage of other medications necessary to control your horses heaves. These treatments are most effective if started BEFORE symptoms start for the year. Heaves is a chronic disease that returns with worsening symptoms each year. If your horse had symptoms last year please consider adding herbal and acupuncture treatments to their regimen.
