Milbourn Equine NEW Healthcare Plans

At Milbourn Equine we want to help you give your horse or pony the best care possible. We know that prevention is better than cure and want to make this approach as simple and convenient for you as we can.

Health Plans are not insurance, instead they provide regular checks along with preventative medication to keep your horse’s day to day health in the best possible condition.

As part of our commitment to your horse’s wellbeing we offer more convenient monthly payments and as a reward for your commitment to preventative care, we also give you discounts on selected treatments and products. Our plan is available for horses, ponies or donkeys from any age.

You can also pop in to your local branch, speak to your vet or give us a call and a member of our team will be happy to discuss the details of the plan further.

When you are ready to sign up you can complete our application form available from your vet or the office or alternatively call 0800 1699958 to set up your direct debit.

Special Offer throughout April – £10 Off Dental Rasping

We recommend that all horses undergo a dental examination at least once a year.  Some horses such as those expected to perform at a high level and those with specific dental abnormalities might benefit from more frequent examinations.

Our vets have all received full dentistry training during their time at University and are more than happy to carry out dental treatment on your horse. In addition they can also administer drugs such as sedatives, local anaesthetics and pain killer drugs allowing safer more comfortable treatment. Rasping can also be combined with one of our £10 Zone Visits making us very competitively priced. Why not call us to find out more!

Gastroscope Clinics – Special Offer

Gastroscope Clinics

Milbourn Equine offer twice monthly gastroscope clinics at Benenden and Ashford (Sevington), where you can book in to bring your horse along for a gastroscope at a reduced price.

How do I arrange for my horse to be Gastroscoped?

Gastroscopy can be carried out at our clinics in Ashford (Sevington) and Benenden. Horses must be starved prior to the procedure in order to ensure that the stomach is empty. In order to facilitate this it is possible to have your horse admitted to the clinic the day before the procedure (Ashford clinic only). To arrange an appointment or to discuss your horse’s symptoms with a vet please contact one of the clinics.

If you decide to admit your horse on the day of the procedure you must:

  • Give your horse their last feed at 6pm the night before
  • Stabled on inedible bedding
  • Remove hay and feed bucket after last feed
  • Water must be taken away as early as possible on the morning of the procedure
  • No hay net whilst travelling to the clinic

Please remember to bring your horse’s bridle with you when bringing your horse to the clinic.
