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.
