Cape May Court House - The Cape May County 4-H Fall Equine Health Clinic is scheduled for Saturday, December 10, 2016. On this date, veterinarians and clinic volunteers travel throughout the county to participants’ farms and boarding stables, offering equine de-worming and vaccinations at a reduced fee.
These semi-annual equine health clinics, held each December and March, are cooperative endeavors between local veterinarians from Stepping Stones Veterinary Wellness, LLC, formerly South Jersey Equine Associates, and Rutgers Cooperative Extension’s 4-H Youth Development Program. They are coordinated under the direction of 4-H volunteer Nancy Rothenbiller.
Dr. Beth Hirsch, veterinarian and owner of Stepping Stones Veterinary Wellness, LLC, is pleased to continue offering semi-annual equine health clinics to all horse and pony owners in Cape May County and encourages local equine owners to take advantage of this opportunity to vaccinate and de-worm their horses regularly.
This year’s fall clinic emphasizes core vaccines and parasite control. The registration deadline is Friday, December 2. No registrations will be accepted on the day of the clinic. Please contact the 4-H office at 465-5115, ext. 605 for a registration form.
