This post is always a popular one and given the current heatwave we seem to be experiencing it only seems appropriate that we share it again! It's worth bearing in mind the following reasons why horses struggle in hot conditions:
1) Horses heat up 3 - 10 times quicker than humans
2) Within 17 minutes of exercise their core body temperature reaches a critical point
3) To lose heat they produce more than 30 litres of sweat per hour when exercising
4) Performance deteriorates with fluid losses of 2 - 3%; this represents 10 - 15 litres of sweat or 20 - 30 minutes of exercise without access to fluids.

Congratulations to our client Emily and her lovely pony Ellie who recently won the Overall Supreme title at her first show back since having some time off. Tim was asked to examine Ellie last year after previous treatment attempts had been unsuccessful, and a plan was made to carry out 'Lipogems' treatment. We are delighted to see the results of this following completion of the rehabilitation programme and it is wonderful that Ellie has been able to return to full work! Thank you for the update and pictures Emily. ... See MoreSee Less

Congratulations to our client, Lucy, on the safe arrival of this beautiful colt foal who was actually conceived by AI at the practice last year! You can see one of the very early scan images in the comments section below 🙂 We are delighted to have been involved the whole way through the process - Tim was there early this morning to check the foal over following the delivery! Please do contact us if you are interested in the AI services we can offer. ... See MoreSee Less

Friendly reminder to our lovely clients 😊 - please use the ON-CALL mobile number (07796 338979) for any emergencies out of hours i.e. after 5pm on weekdays and any time on weekends/bank holidays. Please refrain from ringing the vets on their personal mobiles as they may not be on-call so would appreciate not being disturbed and it also may delay us attending to your horse if the call is not picked up. We have some lovely key fobs which we will try and get out to all of you - please ask the vet for one at your next appointment. Finally, please can we ask that you do not ring the vets (especially out of hours!) for advice relating to insurance claims/booking next appointments/price enquiries etc etc. These calls should all be directed to the office during working hours to enable us to assist you efficiently. Thank you for your understanding - we believe this will enable us to offer the best service to all our clients. As always we welcome any other suggestions though! We hope you all have a great weekend with your horses in this lovely sunshine 🌞🌞 ... See MoreSee Less
