Red Rock Equine Veterinary makes great efforts to assist our clients and veterinarians to smoothly navigate through our Registration Forms, Scheduling Process and Appointment Expectations.
Because we offer Routine care as well as Specialized Internal Medicine Services we may be contacted directly by the owner or by their veterinarian.
When using our scheduling appointment link you may add notes about what is your major concern with your horse, diagnostic and treatment history and what do you believe he/she needs done. Also if you have a veterinarian involved in the case that should be included in the appointment and discussions.
For example, you may write:
"My horse has been losing significant weight over the past 6 weeks. He has been seen by my regular veterinarian and seemed to improve some but now is back to not feeling well. We have done some blood work, dewormed him, performed dental care and placed him on a higher calorie diet. I can have all his records forwarded to you and give you my vet's contact info in case you would like to discuss things with her. I am not sure what he needs at this point. Scope for ulcers? More blood testing? Any Monday in the mornings works best for me. Will wait to hear from you. Thank you."
OR "My horse just needs a dental exam and floating if deemed necessary"
The other option is when a veterinarian prefers contacting us directly and mediating the consult. This can be done by calling us directly or filling out an online DVM REFERRAL FORM.
Appointments can be scheduled to be in conjunction with our colleague veterinarian so that we can work on the patient together, ensure everyone understands all that is diagnosed and discussed, and so follow-up and monitoring can be better done by our colleague.
All our Equipment is portable and appointments are done at the horse's boarding location. However, for many of the equipment used we will need a good power source, a covered and clean area to work, and the patient to be caught and ready in the stall or cross-ties.
All the history, thoughts, diagnostics and treatment recommended, costs involved among others will be covered during the appointment. You will receive a written report with all the findings and recommendations as well as copies of all blood work, images taken (x-rays, ultrasound, endoscopy, etc). This report and all attachments can also be sent to your veterinarian.
An invoice will be typed and emailed to you at the end of the appointment.
Payment will be expected at this time. Please refer to our Payment Policies for more information on this topic.
