Leatherstocking Veterinary Services would like to start this beautiful Wednesday with a patient’s update!

Gorky is a very talented jumper LVS has been lucky enough to care for. Gorky has ended this summer showing consistently in the 1.40 Meter Open Jumper Classes and Grand Prix’s at HITS. His owner’s goal is to move him up to 1.50 Meter Grand Prix’s this winter. Gorky’s owner says, “Gorky and I owe a lot of our success to Leatherstocking. How could we be where we are today if Leatherstocking hadn’t helped us through quite a rough time in the very beginning of our relationship!”

Leatherstocking is proud of be a part of their success and we look forward to their exciting future! Best of luck to Team Gorky!

From champion to pasture buddy, Leatherstocking Veterinary Services can help your horse live a happier, healthier life. Please call our clinic today at (607)847-9990 to schedule an appointment for your special partner!

Please help us welcome our newest externs!

Leatherstocking Veterinary Services welcomes Anna Payne, an extern from Cornell University. Anna will be joining Leatherstocking’s vet team for 2 weeks.
Originally from Farmington, New York, Anna is in her last year of studying veterinary medicine. She is most interested in working with large animals. When Anna isn’t busy studying for school, she enjoys hiking, spending time with family, friends and her rescue dog, Rufus. She also loves driving through the country side, especially the Finger Lakes area. Leatherstocking is glad to have Anna and we wish her the best during her stay!

Leatherstocking Veterinary Services extern program selects students from all over the United States and abroad. Emelie O’Connor joins our veterinary team from Sweden! Originally from a very small town in the south of Sweden, Emelie began her career with journalism. Her lifelong passion of horses and riding changed her focus from journalism to veterinary medicine. Emelie is now attending the University of Veterinary Medicine in Budapest. She will be graduating in February and plans to apply for a small animal internship in the U.S.A. Emelie ultimately would like to focus on all animals, large and small.
Already completing 2 weeks, Emelie will be with Leatherstocking for an additional 2 weeks. We thank Emelie for choosing Leatherstocking Veterinary Services and look forward to her future achievements!

An additional extern for two weeks will be Vanessa Wolf. Vanessa joins Leatherstocking Veterinary Services from North Carolina. She attends North Carolina State University and will be graduating in May 2017. Before studying veterinary medicine, Vanessa was an art design major. Her love of animals led her to take a few animal related courses, ultimately changing her major to veterinary medicine. Vanessa enjoys working with large animals and small ruminants the most.
At home, Vanessa has older twin brothers, her cat named Gus, a whippet, Henry and Basil, a chinchilla. She also enjoys traveling. Leatherstocking welcomes Vanessa and wishes her luck during her stay and final studies!

Good Morning, from Leatherstocking Veterinary Services!

This morning we are sharing 2 photos from a previous patient. This horse, Karra, caught her leg on a t-post. The cut started at her shoulder and went all the way down to her hoof. Karra required over 100 sutures from Dr. Rachel Fraser. Karra's owner reports that now the hair has grown back over the scar and there is no visible sign of a previous injury on her mare's leg.

*The first picture is after Dr. Rachel Fraser removed the sutures. The second photo was taken at the end of summer following the injury.

Early this morning, Dr. Rachel Fraser performed an endoscopic exam. This horse received treatment for gastric ulcers, and the exam today proved the treatment was successful! Now instead of ulcers, healthy stomach mucosa has been found. The 3 meter long video endoscope is not just used for gastric endoscopy, but for respiratory endoscopy too. This is just one of the many tools Leatherstocking Veterinary Services has to help your horse live a happy and healthy life! ... See MoreSee Less
