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…
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!

It’s a stroke of good fortune for Reno and us to have you (Dr. Moore) and Dr. Hecking for his veterinarian and we are all most appreciative indeed!
“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 cannot think of anything that you need to do to improve…everyone was wonderful! Although I came to you with a heavy heart, you quickly reassured me that this was a situation that you could handle and I was impressed through every step of the surgery and recovery process with your professionalism and kindness. Thank you from me, my daughter, and Gabe!
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.
Everyone was extremely nice and helpful. Logan enjoyed his stay.

I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know how much we appreciate all that you for our babies and for us! Your love and concern for the horses is so apparent, and whatever the circumstances, I always know they’re in good hands. Thank you more than you know!
Due to a scheduling mix-up, the stem cell treatment for my horse was due to arrive at BREC before we’d had a chance to schedule an appointment for it to be injected. When I was unable to haul my horse from Hanover to Earlysville that day, Dr. Trostle (who had just returned from an out of town conference the night before and who was in the midst of BREC’s once a month MRI day) came to us (approximately an hour and a half away) to take care of the procedure. Dr. Trostle and BREC really saved the day by providing above and beyond customer service!
I want everyone at BREC to know that Tabby is THE best vet you could possibly have. Not only does she take wonderful care of my beloved horses and truly cares about them and is so extremely competent. I know she spent far more time with my gang than she had intended but that did not deter her one bit to stay with me to make sure all was well. AND she works so hard. You all probably don’t remember that when I first arrived in Va. Jargy was definitely not himself. Two vets told me to put him to pasture he was old. Finally I got ahold of and Tabby who recognized that it was EPM and we started him on medication right away. She saved Jargy’s life. I can tell you all I wouldn’t have another vet ever.
Everyone at Blue Ridge was so kind on top of being so professional. So, thank you for your efforts. I know that everyone did everything possible to save him.

Thank you for your care of all of our horses (and other critters!). It means so much to us that you care about them as much as we do! They are all special – and the compassion and tenderness you showed for Kitzia made something that is so difficult much easier to handle. Thank you so much for taking such good care of everyone for us!
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.
We had to bring our OTTB Dargan to BREC on a Sunday afternoon on an emergency colic issue. Upon arrival the BREC team was fully prepared to make an assessment. It was great to be involved in the process from arrival, as this was our first time dealing with this type of situation. Dr. Santos and his team were fantastic to work with from the start. He was calm, thorough and explained what was happening as he and his team assessed the critical situation as it unfolded right …in front of us.
Dargan needed to have surgery that was a colon impaction. Dr. Santos was hands on and was there for us throughout the entire process to include following up regularly after spending five days in the hospital. His bedside manner was excellent for the horse and for us and our 14-year-old daughter who wants to be an equine vet herself. He answered all of her questions and continues to be involved in every step of the process.
Dr. Santos has amazing patience, understanding and explained everything to our daughter in detail letting her be involved in caring for her horse, which has made a huge difference! He has made such a great impression on a young girl and helped make a bad situation a positive learning experience for her and us.
Dr. Gould who will be missed greatly, kept us informed throughout Dargan’s recovery. She was thoughtful and kind and called often as we requested to keep us informed of his progress.
We are VERY fortunate to have BREC so close to us in Virginia. We just wanted to say “THANK YOU” to Dr. Santos for all that you have done for us. We are thrilled to have such an amazing, caring and thoughtful vet come to Virginia and be a part of BREC.
Thank you BREC and all your staff!
And a huge Thank You to the entire staff for all that you do to help owners provide the best care available to our equine friends. Special thanks to Jean who is always calm and efficient no matter how ‘un-calm’ I might be when a situation seems overwhelming. And a huge Merry Christmas greeting to Dr. Dagner. You continue to take the time to educate, encourage and care about the horses after all these years. I couldn’t ask for more! You guys are THE BEST!
I have been a client of Blue Ridge for close to 25 years and have always been very satisfied with the care and service I have received. I appreciate your consistent attention to offering the latest diagnostic techniques and equipment yet the friendly staff remains largely the same and attentive. Changing yet the same 🙂 Thank you for years of excellent care for a long list of Johnson horses!
“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.”
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.
