Windmiller Equine is excited to announce that we are now offering on-farm gastroscopy! No need to transport to a clinic or hospital. Our 3 meter endoscope allows us to examine your horse's stomach for ulcers and customize treatment specifically for your horse. Gastroscopy is currently the only definitive procedure to diagnosis and monitor ulcerative disease. Call us today to schedule your horse's scope!
Below are recent images captured with our state-of-the-art scope showing the excellent image quality available to the veterinarian allowing for easier diagnosis and the best treatment options for your horse.
Lots of exciting news coming up this month - stay tuned for some new services we will be offering and introductions to new members of our team! Speaking of new additions... Welcome to our first foal of the season! How cute is she?!
Windmiller Equine is happy to announce our latest Owner Education Clinic in conjunction with Dr. Brandy Snedden of Flying Horse Vet. The topic will be: Colic, The Number One Killer of Horses. Come learn some basic anatomy and then delve into what can go wrong, as well as some diseases that can mimic colic signs. Learn signs of colic and what you can do to prevent it. Lastly, we will have a guest speaker from ASPCA Pet Health Insurance to discuss equine medical insurance. As always, snacks will be provided.

The Ohio Department of Agriculture reports that a 3rd horse has recently died as a result of Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) infection. Eastern Equine Encephalitis is an infectious disease that affects the brain of horses. The disease is caused by a virus which attacks the brain, destroys nerve cells and causes brain inflammation and swelling.
The onset of symptoms usually starts with a fever that can reach as high as 106 degrees for 1 to 2 days. Additional symptoms may begin to develop one to three weeks later and can include lethargy, fever, muscle tremors, wobbliness (ataxia), and other neurologic symptoms.
If your horse has not been vaccinated this year for Eastern Equine Encephalitis, we urge you to do so immediately. This inexpensive vaccine is very protective against this potentially fatal disease.
Windmiller Equine and Flying Horse Veterinary Practice are co-hosting a FREE client educational lecture on equine first aid and bandaging techniques!
