ONE OF MANY BENEFITS OF EDPA MEMBERSHIP
A recent adventure showed me one of the benefits of being a member of the EDPA. I had an accident which resulted in a fractured humerus of my right arm. Completely broke, all the way through, midway between my elbow and shoulder. I could not use my right arm, probably for approximately four months.
Lucky for me, I have some great friends in our EDPA. our President and my good friend, Carl Mitz, who kindly contacted Juston Hutchinson, and Becca Green to help me provide dental care for the several weeks of equine dental appointments that my wife/boss, Dawn, had scheduled for that time period.
I was the "supervising" veterinarian for the certified, licensed EDPA members that came to my rescue during the past few weeks (which sometimes meant that I was privileged to be able to learn some methods from the "techs" that I was "supervising").
I may have lost several clients without the assistance of these friends.
Thanks again to Carl, Becca, and Juston!
