23 January, 2015 – Huntington, Long Island — One of the premier veterinary practices in North America, B.W. Furlong and Associates is expanding its practice in Long Island with the ambulatory services of Dr. Emily Olson.
Dr. Brendan Furlong, who has been the US Team Vet for 5 Olympic Games as well as numerous World Championship and Pan-Am teams, explained that his practice has had clients in Long Island for 25 years. Last year Dr. Billy Hodge became the clinic’s Long Island representative, but when he decided to move to the West Coast, Dr. Olson, a well-rounded general practitioner, was the obvious choice to take over.
“She is familiar with our operations and understands the scope of our business,” said Dr. Furlong. “She has a wide array of skill sets and is very self-motivated. She handles sport horse evaluations, imaging, and is particularly skilled in equine dentistry and emergency services.”
Centrally based in Huntington, with her fully equipped ambulatory unit, Dr. Olson can cover all of Long Island, as well as parts ofWestchester County, NY and southern Connecticut. Clients range from backyard ponies and retirees to world-class performance horses, with an emphasis on sport horses.
“Billy had focused a lot on sports medicine and lameness, which is a strong focus of our practice,” she said. “I can meet all of your sport horse needs as well as the more general needs of your horses.”
Dr. Olson is currently developing a membership type wellness program for horse owners that will streamline health care and save horse owners money on annual expenses.
Dr. Furlong said, “Dr. Olson has learned a lot in her time working as an associate in our practice in New Jersey, covering everything from hospital cases to pre-purchase exams to emergency work. She truly cares about horses and people and is very motivated to make the expansion of our practice in Long Island a success.”
