Stamping Out Flu Campaign

You may have seen several reports lately about flu outbreaks here and across in France.

Equine Flu is an infectious disease affecting the upper respiratory tract of horses. It is prevalent in the UK and a horse with flu needs complete rest and isolation, often putting them out of action for weeks.

Milbourn Equine are teaming up with Boehringer to offer our clients whose horse’s immunity against flu has lapsed a free flu vaccination as part of a course throughout the month of February.

Please call to book a visit now.

**Vaccine cost only, visit fee and administration fees still apply. The offer is only open to horses that are over 9 months of age and have not yet been vaccinated against equine influenza or are overdue an annual booster.  Vaccination to take place in the offer month.

Gastroscope Clinics – Special Offer

Gastroscope Clinics

Milbourn Equine offer twice monthly gastroscope clinics 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?

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 your local branch.

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.
