Hawkhurst Evening Talk

Thank you to everyone who came along to our Milbourn Equine evening talk at Bodiam International Arena last Wednesday.

Merial gave an informative talk about the causes of gastric ulcers, while Dengie Horse Feeds gave an entertaining talk regarding nutrition. Our vet Howard finished off the evening with a brief summary of what you should be keeping stocked up in your first aid kit.

Our raffle also raised £68. We hope you enjoyed it and keep an eye out for details of our next one in the Spring.

Hawkhurst Evening Talk

Thank you to everyone who came along to our evening talk on the 5th April at Bodiam International Arena and Leisure Club.

 

Juliette from Merial provided a very informative talk on equine flu and the importance of vaccinating.  A horse with flu needs complete rest and isolation, often putting them out of action for weeks. In addition to this, outbreaks can affect competitions at all levels, potentially resulting in the cancellation of events in order to control the spread of disease. The equine flu virus evolves and changes constantly and it is important that its development is monitored in order to ensure vaccines protect against the circulating strains.

Our Back on Track campaign is running throughout April offering a 25% discount if your horse’s flu vaccinations have lapsed. Do call us to take advantage of this special offer.

 

John Haizelden from ESFRS Large Animal Rescue explained more about the important job they do rescuing horses and other large animals!

The ESFRS Large Animal Rescue are also holding an Equine Safety Day informing about the dangers you should be aware of and giving you the opportunity to get your trailer or horsebox safety checked.

 

We also raised £95.20 for The British Horse Society Changing lives through horses campaign from the raffle on the night.

Don’t forget our next talk will be at our Sevington Clinic in Ashford on Gastric Ulcers April 25th so reserve your free place now!
