Cushing’s disease
Metabolic syndrome

Chronic Disease

  • Difficulty with collecting or lateral bend
  • Girthiness
  • Dropping out behind
  • Dragging toes
  • Change in jumping or landing pattern
  • Change in behavior or attitude
  • Muscle atrophy or poor muscle development

Dr. Kurtz is a kind and compassionate veterinarian. Her first concern is the welfare of the pet. She has excellent communication skills and makes veterinary care and procedures understandable. She donates hours of time to the Animal Shelter, without her we would not be able to function.

Dr. Kurtz comes to my location to treat my horses both preventative care and for illnesses. She has given my horse acupuncture and it has worked wonders on her as she is getting older.
