HURRICANE IRMA STATEMENT

Dear Peterson & Smith Family and Friends,
As we prepare for Hurricane Irma, please keep safety in mind at all times. As always, our referral hospital will be staffed to function on an emergency basis. Please make every attempt to contact us at >>> 352-237-6151 before loading up and bringing your horse to the hospital. Also, do not try to trailer your horse under unsafe conditions.

Ambulatory services will be available as the situation permits. Safety is paramount, and we will not risk the safety of our staff and potentially add to the challenges faced by first responders in our community by sending our staff into harm’s way.

We urge you to prepare yourselves and your horses for the worst-case scenario. If evacuation is an option, please consider it. The Florida Department of Agriculture has temporarily suspended the interstate movement requirements for horses evacuating due to Irma.

When stocking up on supplies, remember to also stock up on any medications or medical supplies needed for your horses. Our office will be open until 12 pm Saturday, and we hope to reopen Tuesday morning.

As Floridians, we are accustomed to preparing for hurricanes on an almost yearly basis. We always hope that our preparation efforts are for naught. However, it is always prudent to wish for the best and prepare for the worst. If you have any medical concerns about preparing your horse to weather the storm, please contact your veterinarian.
We are here for you, and together we will stand through this time.
