SQP Qualification

Claire has recently completed the SQP Qualification for Equine, Farm and Companion Animals meaning she can now provide advice and dispense certain medications such as wormers.  This qualification was very involved and took over 2 years to complete so is a great thing to hold!  Farm animal receptionist Jay and small animal assistant Sara have also completed the qualification.

Faecal Worm Egg Counts and Yard/Individual Worming Protocols 

During the grazing season take advantage if our in house Faecal Worm Egg Count service in order to provide your horses with appropriate and effective worm control.

FWECs ensure that horses only receive worming treatment if they require it, therefore are financially beneficial for owners and helps prevent  build up of resistance against our precious supply of effective anthelmintic drugs.

FWECs are £9.50 each or £7.50 each if 5 or more samples are brought from the same yard.  Please call us at the clinic to arrange your FWECs.

If you would like any worming advice or information on FWECs we are happy to offer this and can set out a worming protocol for yards and/or individuals free of charge.

Evening Talks

We regularly hold free of charge evening talks on various relevant topics.  We are also happy to give a talk on a topic of your choice for local clubs/meetings in the area.  Please contact us for further information or to arrange a talk.
