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.
