LOPE’s veterinary sponsors, Austin Equine Associates, just opened a beautiful, state-of-the-art clinic and surgery center in Driftwood, TX! And Dr. JoLynn Joyce, an equine surgeon, has joined the practice as well.
Austin Equine Associates already sponsors LOPE for vet care, giving the LOPE horses a hefty discount on any care they may need. Austin Equine makes a huge difference to all the LOPE horses, but especially the ones with long-term rehab needs.
So, imagine our surprise and gratitude when Dr. Joyce told us that she would like to help LOPE with discounted equine surgeries! We see so many horses with knee and ankle chips — but have rarely had the means to give these horses chip removal surgeries.
Thanks to Austin Equine Associates and Dr. Joyce, LOPE can now commit to chip removal procedures for a few special horses each year!
And the first horse has just arrived a few days ago too — details coming soon…
