WORM EGG COUNT PROMOTION
During April we are running another worm egg count promotion where we charge £9.00 to test a sample and all positive results will receive a FREE wormer. Worm egg counts are a great way to prevent un-necessary worming and help to reduce the chance of wormer resistance.
Samples can be left at either newbiggin or Dalston receptions in sealed bags or containers. Please label with your name, phone number, horse name and age. We will give you a call with results and follow up advice.
Please have a look at our video below.
During May we will be running a vaccination amnesty for influenza and tetanus vaccines. Any primary courses started during this month will receive the 2nd dose FREE, a saving of up to £37.76 per horse.
This offer is available to horses that have either not been vaccinated before or to those with vaccination courses that have lapsed.
The offer is only available for registered clients and normal visit charges will apply.

We can currently offer FREE lab fees for horses that have not been previously tested for ACTH with a positive reading.

· Thick or curly coat that is not cast correctly
· Increased or excessive drinking
· Fat pads above the eyes

· Compromised immune system, e.g. prone to infections and slow to recover.
