    We started working with Dr. Thunes to start over with her expertise to give him the best opportunity to regain his health.  We provided her with all the information she requested, and we had lots of questions and concerns.  She patiently listened, and then she went to work.  Dr. Thunes gave us a roadmap to get Snowy back to better health.  We implemented her plan, and we saw him improve.
    We’ve learned that life is unpredictable with a geriatric horse with PPID.  When Snowy has had some setbacks, Dr. Thunes has been there for us to help us figure it out.  This has taken a huge burden away from us, knowing his nutritional needs are being met in changing circumstances.
    Recently the situation has changed again.  Due to aging teeth and poor dentition, Snowy can no longer properly chew and digest hay.  Quickly, Dr. Thunes helped us transition him to a fortified pelleted diet, and we’re hoping to add back some pelleted or cubed hay to give him more variety and to restore his equine identity.
    Through all these challenges over the past year, Dr. Thunes has been genuinely caring and concerned while being very professional and thorough.  Looking back, I’m sure that Snowy is much happier and healthier with Dr. Thunes’ dietary guidance than if we had attempted to navigate these changes on our own, and I’m very grateful for the “Clairity” she provides!
