RIDER SPONSORSHIP 2020

For the last year we have sponsored two junior riders Charlotte Bradshaw and Freya Kenworthy and followed their progress with their horses.

Both riders have been absolute superstars 🌟 and been fantastic at keeping us up to date on their social media pages with what they have been up to both whilst training and at competitions 🏇.

Sadly their sponsorship comes to an end at the end of March 2020 so are looking for two new riders to sponsor and follow for 2020.

For details on our sponsorship opportunity see our Sponsored Riders page http://www.bakewellvets.co.uk/equine-clinic/sponsored-riders-2019/

OFFERS!

Microchipping offer – £25.00!

As of October 2020 it will be a legal requirement that all horses, ponies and donkeys are microchipped.  Whilst many are already microchipped there are still some animals that do not have a chip and therefore need to be done before October.

To help with this we have microchipping at a special offer price of £25.00 (normal price £35.00).  To save an extra visit we advise you get the microchip implanted at your next routine visit such as for vaccinations.

FREE ACTH lab fees for Equine Cushings Disease (PPID) testing & monitoring

Diagnostic tests

Currently ACTH lab fees for horses and ponies are free providing the animal has not previously been diagnosed with the condition/is not on treatment.

Equine Cushings Disease (PPID) is a condition that involves enlargement of the pituitary gland which secretes increased levels of the hormone ACTH causing clinical signs including hirsuitism (long curly coat), laminitis, fat pads above the eyes, increased urination, increased drinking, recurrent infections and lethargy.

Cushings Disease is diagnosed with clinical signs and a blood sample to test the levels of the ACTH hormone.

The condition is usually able to be well controlled with medication.

For more information on Cushings Disease visit the Talk About Laminitis website wym-1546686980300

Monitoring Tests

All horses and ponies previously diagnosed with Cushings Disease and on treatment for the condition with Prascend are eligible for one free set of ACTH lab fees per year for monitoring purposes.

To redeem this offer owners need to register themselves and their horses on www.careaboutcushings.co.uk.  You will be required to enter your horses late ACTH blood sample date and their last level of ACTH.  We can provide this information for you if you do not have it.  Once registered you will be emailed a code which you need to pass on to us in order for us to claim the free lab fees.
