Equine Grass Sickness Vaccine Trial

Please see the information sheet below regarding the Equine Grass Sickness vaccine trial, which we are very pleased to be able to support.

Only through working together are we likely to find a cure for this horrible disease, and so we would urge you to participate, if you are eligible to take part in the trial.


Spring is in the air!

Now is a great time to make a plan for your horse this year. How about starting with getting your horse weighed? Has he/she come through the winter looking a little too well?

You can either come to the hospital and use the weighbridge we have here, or alternatively we have a portable weighbridge which we can bring to your yard.

For further information, to organise a visit to your yard, or to book a slot at the hospital, please telephone us on 01428 723594.
