Talk About Laminitis has returned for another year and Liphook Equine Hospital are performing all the testing for the 4th year running. From now until the end of October FREE blood test vouchers (which are now paperless) are available at: http://www.talkaboutlaminitis.co.uk/.
Thousands of horses have benefited from the Talk About Laminitis program allowing early diagnosis and therefore prevention of future laminitis episodes.
When horses and ponies are prone to laminitis it is important to test for Cushing’s disease, amongst other underlying hormonal diseases. Although many people think that Cushing’s is a disease seen only in geriatric patients it has now been shown that many (up to one third) of 10 to 15 year olds may be affected.
Liphook Equine Hospital is dedicating June as Equine Dental Awareness Month!
Over the month, on our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/The-Liphook-Equine-Hospital-219012241471613/), we will be providing you with lots of information to promote the importance of horses receiving regular dental examinations.
Dental care is extremely important to the health and welfare of our horses. As herbivores they rely on the efficient grinding mechanism of their teeth to obtain adequate nourishment.
Dental/Oral disorders can be painful and cause suffering.
In recent year’s equine dentistry is an area in veterinary medicine in which there has been many significant advances.
At Liphook Equine Hospital we take equine dentistry very seriously. All of our vets have up to date knowledge and skills in dental examination and treatment, and are fully equipped with modern dental instruments. We also have a fully equipped dental clinic in which advanced procedures and surgeries may be carried out.
We believe that prevention is better than cure and encourage our clients to have their horse’s mouths examined on a regular basis. A thorough examination is key to maintaining dental health.
From Thursday 9th June, Tom McGinley who has an RCVS certificate in Equine Dentistry, will be holding a fortnightly afternoon dental clinic at the hospital for both routine and remedial dentistry. During Dental Awareness Month (June) horses which have a dental treatment at the hospital or groups of four or more horses on a yard can receive a FREE Oroscope exam.
Come along to our informative evening talk on Wednesday 8th June 2016. Doors open 7pm, prompt 7.30pm start.
Venue: Millenium Hall, 2-10 Ontario Way, Liphook, GU30 7LD.
