EHV-1 outbreak in Florida

Yes, I know, I have neglected to update my blog in some time.  Normally my busiest time of the year, my braiding and body clipping business has come to a screeching halt.  Here are some press releases regarding the viral outbreak by The Chronicle of the Horse (http://www.chronofhorse.com/content/2013-ehv-1-outbreak-florida).

I would like for all of clients to know that we are following bio-security measures to ensure the safety of their horses.  We disinfect all of our equipment with bleach and 1-Stroke Environ.  We disinfect our clipper blades with Barbicide and spray with Clipercide while clipping. I encourage anyone with any questions to contact me.  As many of you know, I work full-time as a vet -tech at an equine hospital, so I have had many years of experience with isolated horses and bio-security measures.  Best of luck to everyone for the remainder of the winter show season and wishing a quick recovery to all horses affected.
