Personal Phone Visits - Comprehensive Consultation


Dr. Getty is now working on a new book, a companion to Feed Your Horse Like a Horse, that will include additional research and expanded coverage of the horse care concerns most frequently voiced during her 20+ years in the field. So for the next six months, Dr. Getty will be able to offer individual consultations only to existing clients. She looks forward to consulting with new clients once the book is finished.

Dr. Getty will call within the U.S., and English-speaking international locations. Click Here for more details about what a consultation entails...







Your visit with Dr. Getty is thorough and comprehensive.  Preparation beforehand involves reviewing and compiling information to gain a full understanding of your horse's health needs. You  will talk with Dr. Getty at length (generally 1 to 1 1/2 hours) going over your horse's needs and how they fit into your lifestyle, budget, and time constraints. Finally, if desired, Dr. Getty will produce a written report summarizing your visit, along with recommendations, that you may share with your veterinarian, trainer, barn manager, and others involved in your horse's care.  The goal is to provide you with a customized plan that will result in better health for your horse.

One horse (or group of horses with the same situation) is generally discussed at a time. For multiple horses with several health problems, more than one appointment may be needed.     

Prior to visiting, credit/debit card information will be requested. The total time used will be always be indicated prior to charging your card.
