WINTER NEWSLETTER 2017

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

We would like to wish all our clients a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and all the best for 2018.  We would like to thank you for your support during 2017 and we look forward to caring for your horses in 2018.

Welcome to Connie

As of 1st February 2018 we will be joined by Dr. Cornelia Chrobok MRCVS, DVM.  Connie is from Pegasus Equine and will be joining us at Bakewell as of 1st February.

Connie qualified in Germany in 1998 and has worked in the area since 2008.  In her spare time she takes part in endurance riding, kitesurfing, jiu jitsu, walking and owns a Bengal cat. She has a broad range of experience in first opinion equine practice and we look forward to her joining the team.

Vaccine Amnesty
As part of the Keeping Britains Horses Healthy Campaign we will be holding a vaccine amnesty in February and March 2018 providing the second vaccination of the flu and tetanus, flu or tetanus course free of charge (visit fee still applies).

Horses, ponies and donkeys eligible for the amnesty are who are unvaccinated or have lapsed in their vaccinations by more than 3 months.

Vaccination against flu and tetanus is essential to reduce the risk of disease, prevent the spread of disease and develop herd immunity.

Bakewell Supplements

We have a range of our own brand supplements at the clinic.  The Joint Excel Elite is now available in a larger value pack of 2.7kg at a price of £205.62

Winter Worming

We recommend all horses are wormed over the winter months routinely regardless of past FWECs.  This is so we can ensure that we effectively treat encysted small redworm (cyathastomes).  We also recommend you treat for tapeworm at the same time.  The most effective wormer for this treatment is Equest Pramox which treats both encysted small redworm, adult worms and tapeworm.

We recommend all horses then have a FWEC in the spring to monitor their worm burden.

For any other worming advice please contact us at the clinic and we will be happy to discuss with you.Equest Pramox is available from the clinic priced at £19.76 per tube. For larger quantities please ring and order in advance.

Case Studies

We often detail interesting case studies via post on social media.  We always ask clients before posting photos and ensure names and identification of the horse is hidden if this is preferred. 

If you think your horse would make a good case study please let us know!

Dental Offer

**Book in 4 or more horses at the same yard for dentals and the visit is free of charge!**

All our vets are experienced in dentistry and we have a wide range of dental equipment including both battery and mains operated power rasps and a dental endoscope.

Some horses may require sedation in order for a thorough examination and treatment to be completed.  This is currently at a set rate of £20 per horse*.

*Sedation charge will increase to £22 per horse as of 1st January 2018).
