With experience teaching at SUNY Cobleskill and helping with client seminars, Dr. Kara believes that client education is essential to the health of her patients. While a veterinarian is certainly key to providing proper healthcare, Dr. Kara feels strongly that the owner plays the largest role in the overall health of the horse. Owners are responsible for the care and wellbeing of their loved ones on a day to day basis, for managing current conditions on the farm, and for making judegments about both emergency and routine healthcare. While this task can sometimes seem overwhelming, knowledge of proper care is essential to making sure your horse remains happy and healthy.
Dr. Kara will be offering client education opportunities throughout the year to help you decide and plan the best care for your horse. Please stay tuned for upcoming events!
