Regular dental examinations are an important part of equine health. These examinations should form part of your horse’s yearly health plan and are easy to include at the time of your vaccinations. We have experience in routine dental work and have an have range of manual and electric rasping equipment.

Our endoscope is portable and allows us to see images of your horse’s upper respiratory area or oesophagus.
When buying a horse, we strongly recommend a pre-purchase veterinary examination. A pre-purchase examination reduces the chance of buying a horse that may have health problems or become unsound in the future. If you choose to insure the horse, your insurance company may request the examination prior to insurance.
We can carry out a full '5 stage examination ‘or a shorter, less detailed version - '2 stage examination'.

Worm egg counts are an essential part of any worming programme for horses, as it is important to find out if any worms are actually present before beginning treatment. Current research has shown that some types of worms are now showing resistance to particular wormers, and that the overuse or incorrect timings of worming treatments can in fact make this problem worse.
Our trained team can carry out in-house faecal worm egg counts, in order to help work out an effective and efficient worming routine for your horse.
