Milo heard that we might be looking for a demo horse for the client evening so he wanted to show just how relaxed he was at having acupuncture treatment! (Either that or he was bored of hearing us talk about the client evening!! 😂😂). If you look closely you can just about see the needles in his bum! ... See MoreSee Less

This is a very exciting development!!!!EXCITING NEWS!!! We are launching the small redworm blood test (including ENCYSTED larvae) as a diagnostic service in September 2019!!

The new test enables accurate detection of all life cycle stages, including the ENCYSTED larval phase. Until now it has not been possible to test for encysted small redworm as faecal egg counts (FEC) only detect the presence of egg laying adult worms. This has meant that a routine winter treatment to target this life cycle phase has become the recommended practice. Now we will be able to test before we consider using moxidectin. Speak to your veterinarian for more information!

Veterinary practices can contact ADB at info@austindavis.co.uk to register interest in the diagnostic test service. Unique barcoded submission sheets will be supplied enabling efficient result reporting.

The blood test has been developed by Prof Jacqui Matthews’ group at the Moredun Research Institute (MRI), the main funder being The Horse Trust.

There hasn't been quite as much hype or media attention surrounding Equine Influenza recently, but it has not gone away. There were 64 confirmed cases in June and 51 in July compared to 35 in February. A new case was confirmed in Gloucestershire on 30th July. Don't forget if you re-started your horse's vaccinations or brought the booster vaccination forward when the flu news broke in February, your horse could be due for a 6 month vaccination soon. You can keep up to date with news of all the latest outbreaks here: www.aht.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Equiflunet-update-31JUL19.pdf ... See MoreSee Less

Please help with this colic research project if you can by filling in the survey below.**Horse owners we need your help!**

What would you do if your horse developed severe colic? Would you like to know more about what actions you can take to help your horse?

Please help us with the next phase of our colic research!!

This research aims to further explore what horse owners know about colic and what they would do if their horse was to become severely ill. With this in mind, we are inviting anyone who currently owns, or has a major role in emergency decision making for (e.g. deciding what veterinary treatments the horse in their care should receive or if euthanasia is required), a horse, pony, donkey or mule to complete our short online survey. Participants must be 18 years old or over to be able to take part.

The final part of this survey will provide you with up to date evidence on colic management, treatment and survival, which we hope will be extremely useful for horse owners everywhere!

Survey link: nottingham.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/colic-what-would-you-do

Your experiences and thoughts are essential to our research and we greatly appreciate you taking the time to help us!

On the day where temperatures could reach a new record high, it seems the right time to share this post again which is always a popular one each year! Make sure you take steps to prevent your horses overheating and avoid riding during the hottest part of the day.With the current heatwave we are experiencing, 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.
