Gastric ulcers can cause poor performance and behavioural changes and affect horses of all levels - just yesterday a very high profile horse had to be withdrawn from Badminton due to ulcers. Our gastroscopy clinic is running throughout April so don't miss your chance to save 50% on the cost of a gastroscope if you are concerned that your horse may be at risk. www.horseandhound.co.uk/news/ceylor-lan-kitty-king-withdrawn-badminton-684425 ...

Equine Influenza Update

Yesterday we confirmed a case of Equine Influenza in the Stroud area. The affected horse is a previously unvaccinated Thoroughbred (non-racing) that arrived from Ireland 6 days ago. Symptoms were noticed the day after arrival and immediate treatment and biosecurity measures were put in place. It is on grass livery with three others and the group is remote from other horses. Its companions have not shown any symptoms and there has been no movement of horses on or off the farm since the horse’s arrival.

We are confident that the outbreak has been contained to the one affected horse but remain extremely vigilant. Stringent measures to control Equine Influenza have been in place following outbreaks earlier in the year and, while our advice does not change in light of this recent case, please do not hesitate to contact our office if you have any questions or concerns.
