We offer a number of remote services for when visiting your barn is not practical.  In addition to the services shown below we also have a number of special packages that may be used remotely details of which are found in the special packages section under services.

Bronze package – $125

Dr. Clair Thunes Dr. Thunes will conduct 15 minutes of pre-consultation research learning about your specific situation and needs.  You will then receive 45 minutes of one-on-one time with Dr. Thunes by phone to discuss your horse’s diet and answer your questions. Phone consultations may be used to discuss anything related to nutrition however they do not allow for in depth analytical assessment and therefore general questions are best such as:

  • how to get your horse to gain/lose weight?
  • whether a supplement has enough key nutrients to balance hay?
  • how do get a horse to drink more when competing?
  • wanting to know general management guidelines for dealing with medical conditions such as EPSM, ulcers, laminitis etc.
  • wanting to determine which joint supplement is right for your specific horse.
  • wanting to know whether your nutritional program has the basic requirements for balance.

Depending on the complexity of the situation, phone consultations can be used to discuss the needs of more than one horse.  Typically it is possible to discuss 1-3 horses in the allotted 45 minute period.
