VACCINATIONS & DENTISTRY

Annual vaccinations, routine dentistry and pre-purchase examinations are a proactive way to ensure a fit and healthy horse.

PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE!

VACCINATIONS

  • Simple injections can protect your horse against Tetanus, a life threatening disease and Influenza, which seriously affects health and performance.
  • There is no specific cure for these diseases, so prevention by vaccination is essential.
  • We take the time to examine each horse we vaccinate, so it is a great opportunity to discuss any problems or concerns you may have about your horse.
  • DENTISTRY

  • Equine teeth erupt throughout life and need regular attention to ensure that your horse is comfortable.
  • Tooth problems can cause many issues – from poor performance and behavioural changes, to decreased appetite and weight loss.
  • We use the latest equipment to perform a full range of dental procedures, from routine rasping to complicated tooth extractions.
  • PRE-PURCHASE EXAMINATIONS (VETTINGS)

  • Having a thorough check over of any horse you wish to buy, by an experienced vet, is invaluable to identify problems before they become yours.
    We examine the horse at rest and at exercise and fully discuss our findings with you, to help you decide if the horse is suitable for your desired purpose.
  • Sometimes specialised equipment is necessary to back up our findings; we can scan, x-ray and endoscope on site, allowing a prompt decision to be reached.
  • KEEPING HORSES HEALTHY STARTS WITH REGULAR VACCINATIONS AND DENTAL CHECKS.
