Does your horse suffer from weight loss, lack of appetite, poor performance, changes in behaviour or have repeated bouts of mild colic?
If the answer to any of the above is YES then your horse may be suffering from Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS).
Gastroscopy is the only way to diagnose gastric ulcers.
We are holding monthly reduced price gastroscopy clinics throughout the summer at both of our branches in Poppleton and Malton. The clinics will be held on the last Wednesday of the month.
The first clinic will be held at the Malton practice on Wednesday 30th June, followed by the Poppleton practice on the 28th July.
You will need to transport your horse to our clinic for the procedure.
If medication is required after scoping, this will be charged in addition. This offer is valid for initial gastroscopies and for re-scopes of existing conditions. Your horse will need to be starved for 12 hours before the procedure and will be sedated during the procedure. An overnight stay at the clinic to ensure your horse is properly starved (Poppleton only) is available for an extra fee. A deposit fee of £50 secures your place. The remaining balance is payable on the day of the clinic. Any dental work required is payable at the normal cost.
