*The purpose of this Co-op is to improve the mental health and well being of our equine veterinarians, as the frequency and demands of emergency services have contributed to a staffing crisis in the veterinary industry. Less than 1% of students graduating vet school are entering equine medicine, and after three years, half of that 1% have left equine private practice. By creating a professional and collaborative relationship between our practices, this Co-op will maintain the standard of care for our clients while creating a more sustainable lifestyle for our veterinarians.
At B.W. Furlong & Associates, we are progressive leaders delivering the ultimate in veterinary care to our equine patients and clients in both the hospital and ambulatory setting. We have several associated practices offering exemplary care and services in New Jersey, Florida, and Virginia
