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.

Gastroscope Clinics

Do you suspect your horse is suffering from gastric ulcers?
Gastric ulcerations are very common, recent studies have shown up to 98% of racehorses and up to 53% of leisure horses are affected.

Symptoms are often vague and can include:

• Poor performance
• Changes in behaviour
• Weight loss/ failure to maintain condition
• Colic
• Girthing pain
• Poor coat condition

Once diagnosed gastric ulcers can be treated quickly and effectively with medication and horses usually return to their former level of performance. Milbourn Equine offer twice monthly gastroscope clinics at Benenden and Sevington, where you can book in to bring your horse along for a gastroscope at a reduced price.

Scoping in your yard is also available by appointment – please ring for details
