My daughter’s entire world is wrapped around George and everyone there treated him with as much love and TLC as if he was their own. Dr. Stephens and his entire crew were wonderful to us. He was always available to answer questions and offer support and on the days we couldn’t be there we would get photos and cute messages from Jaime. As much I don’t want to ever be in the situation of needing to come back, I would love to be able to see the crew again! Great people you have there in Charlottesville!
“One year ago, Dr. Trostle did colic surgery on Honor. His recovery wasn’t completely smooth as he relapsed back into reflux mode after we thought he was in the clear. Dr. Trostle thought there was a good chance Honor would recover completely and I’m very happy to report he has!! This pic is Honor and I competing at the ODH hunter pace this last weekend. Thanks so much for your wonderful care.”
I will always choose Blue Ridge, Dr. Cowles and Dr. Trostle. What a great clinic. The staff and vets are wonderful.

Thank you very much for the excellent care the BREC staff provided. Please pass along my thanks to Dr. Trostle and most especially the LVTs and staff who took care of Baby Hope!
I just want to thank you guys for all the great care and excellent service that you gave me and Phoenix. You guys always came whenever we needed you. It didn’t matter if it was on the weekend or late at night. You always came. You were also very caring – sending emails or making calls just to check on how things were going.
Thank you so much for your excellent care and compassion shown to Zack and me during our visits to the clinic over the past few months. He is such a sensitive guy, and I love him so much – you made a scary and difficult time so much easier to bear. I always know my animals are safe in your hands! I hope you all know how grateful I am.
Please pass my sincere thanks along. The staff was wonderful and made a very difficult time bearable. Dr. Trostle did a really good job giving me the data points to make decisions. And Dr. Phillips was absolutely wonderful in dealing with all my daily questions and concerns.
Please pass my thanks along to everyone.
Last year, just about this time, you treated Farrari for enteritis and gastric ulcers. Successfully. I wanted to let you know that he came through this year’s show season beautifully, using the Gastrogard and Smart Gut Ultra protocol. He will continue on the pellets until the end of October so fingers crossed that he will remain stable once those are discontinued. He loves his hay net, the more often the better. And second best, after good health, the earned himself a Top Ten at the Arabian Sport Horse Nationals out of 30 horses!
Thank you so much, Anne, for your speedy reply and your consideration for giving me a little education in the process. This, along with the wonderful Dr. Hecking is the reason I want to be your customer! You all have a wonderful day.
I am truly appreciative to all that Dr. Moore and everyone at BREC has done to get him healthy and make him a star! He is having a tremendous show season this year.
I cannot think of a thing (to improve). I was very apprehensive re: my horse’s condition and outcome. Everyone understood and did everything possible to accomodate me to ensure a positive outcome and minimize my concern for my horse. It was a great experience…
Also had a great experience last time. I would not change a thing.
Everyone was extremely nice and helpful. Logan enjoyed his stay.
A heartfelt thank you for the tremendous work your team performed on Sprout and Lulu. The past 2 weeks have been an education for me on the vast medical resources available at BREC. I truly realized the extent and depth of veterinary talents within your organization. I feel totally blessed knowing you are there for me and my equines.
“This is pure joy. I took this when I turned him out just a couple hours ago. His feet aren’t even touching the ground. Please share with Dr. Santos. Smoochie would be dead if it weren’t for him. Many thanks to Blue Ridge. I will start ground training with him March 1 and then he will go to school in April and May. I am so grateful to everyone. He’s such a good boy.”
J.T. and I wanted to thank you again for your time and expertise yesterday. We were so impressed with how you worked with Sunny and how you were able to deliver sad news in such a gentle way. I am also thankful that your clinic has the capability to make this type of diagnostics mobile because I would have hated to transport him in his weakened condition. The Valley is so fortunate to have your clinic available.
