Bluegrass Equine Performance and Internal Medicine, PLLC. Questions that pertain to equine veterinary medicine, lameness, all aspects of internal medicine, neurology, exercise physiology, periparturient mare care, perinatal foal care, emergency and critical care etc. Many people have contacted me with problems that I cannot evaluate over the internet and without being able to perform an examination. I STRONGLY recommend direct involvment and examination by a qualified equine veterinarian, perferably a member of the American Association of Equine Practitioners. I am here for guidance and suggestions only. I cannot treat horses I have never seen for conditions that have not been evaluated or diagnosed without my ability to see the animal.
