letter from dr phil:
Dear VLAC clients,
I am writing you to let you know that I am transitioning Vermont Large Animal Clinic to new ownership after 21 years. My family and I have made the decision to move closer to our extended family and to be near our kids who will hopefully be attending college in North Carolina. The core value of a business is created through the support of clients like yourselves, and so we have worked hard to ensure that the on-going business recognizes that customer support and patient care are embedded in the underlying culture. The new owners, Dr. Emilie Beaupre, and Dr. Betsy Colarusso, recognize the value in the goodwill that has been created through our good relationships with our existing customers. They are keen to ensure that they protect that value by working hard to keep existing clients happy and their horses needs tended to and cared for. Dr. Emilie and Dr. Betsy as the new owners appreciate the business, understand how to operate it properly, and are dedicated to continuing and elevating the level of veterinary care for your horses. I (Dr. Phil) will be staying on through a transition period until June of this year to ensure a smooth handover of the business. All the current staff as well as our current associates, Dr. Alex Brunet and Dr. Amber Goodwin, will remain with the practice and are fully supportive of the new management. Dr. Emilie has been an associate with VLAC for close to 20 years, she is familiar with all aspects of the practice and is held in high regard by our equine community. Dr. Betsy was a previous intern here at VLAC. She has practiced a high level of equine medicine for many years in NY. She is very familiar with VLAC and is looking forward to raising her family here in Vermont. Please help me to welcome Dr. Emilie and Dr. Betsy as the new owners. I look forward to seeing most of you on the road or in the hospital over the next several months. Stay warm and let’s hope spring comes soon.
With much gratitude and appreciation, Phil
EMERGENCY Services Provided: Update and Explanation
Emergency services are provided to VLAC clients with patients (horses) that have been serviced for wellness care over the last 12 months. Wellness care includes a combination of yearly physical exams and vaccinations, dental care, sheath cleaning, fecal egg counts, and/or coggins testing.
New clients or existing clients that have acquired a new horse that have an established Veterinary-Client relationship prior to the emergency are eligible for Emergency services. Such horses must be a part of the upcoming wellness program that provides their yearly care, as stated above.
Emergency services to non-established clients, as indicated above, are not guaranteed. We strongly encourage all horse owners to have a Veterinary-Client relationship with a Clinic/Veterinarian that will provide necessary Emergency Services to their horses.
