Yes, we are always happy to provide estimates of treatment costs. Please note that unexpected variations or complications in your horses’ illness may result in further costs being incurred.

Upon payment of your account in full, we are happy to provide digital copies of your radiographs.

When requested, we can make copies of our radiographs available to interstate veterinarians. Our practice has an online repository and a 30 day link to our radiographic study can be emailed to your own veterinarian. Your veterinarian will have instant access to our DICOM files, which will allow them to provide their own advice, with the knowledge that the images they are assessing are of sufficient quality to be relied upon.

When there is a medication registered with the AVPMA for use in horses, Tweedie & Associates will always use that medication. We will not substitute a commercially available, registered medication with a compounded medication.

Our clinic will not dispense bottles of Xylazine, Sedivet or Dormosedan. If sedation is required for a specific purpose, one of our veterinarians will be happy to attend and administer sedation.

Please note that our clinic will not dispense antibiotics without a prescription. A prescription can only be written when there is an established veterinarian-patient relationship. In keeping with this, prescriptions for antibiotics will not be provided unless one of our veterinarians has examined the animal and made an assessment of the condition for which antibiotics are being prescribed.
