Hustace was called to look at two of my 5 horses some months ago in 2012, and she almost killed them. She said they were "radically underfed". Her "fix", feed them more hay. I went along with it for a couple of months, but my 2 horses just got worse, along with my other 3 that she had insisted I increase the feed to. Finally, thankfully, I got a referral to Dr. Craig Schank, and transferred care of all 5 to him, and his clinic personnel. It took him 4 months to undo the damage Hustace had done. Seems some horses don't drink as much water as they should, even in hot summer months, although adequate water is there for them to ingest. This causes under digestion of their feed hay, which deprives them of vital nutrients. That was what this was all about on the 2 horses. Hustace's insisted over feeding of all 5 horses, and misdiagnosed lower water levels the 2 horses took in, made the issues far worse. From my direct personal experiences with Hustace in this matter, I will never refer her to anyone, nor use her, or her clinic's "services" in the future, for any reason, nor emergency. All 5 of my horses are alive today because of Dr. Craig Schank.
