Terms and conditions for our winter offers 2016/17, all work must be paid for in full on the day.
Summer Holiday Offer 1 ……Worm egg counts half price when combined with a zone visit with a vaccine.
We are trying to encourage people to do worm egg counts a few times a year and only worm the 2 out of ten horses that actually need to be wormed ! So until the 5th of September we are offering a half price WEC when you have a vaccine done on a zone visit. We will also text you when your next WEC is due or alternatively tell you what wormer to use .
Zone visit (0-10 miles ) ….£12
Worm egg count including 50% discount…£6.30
Summer Holiday Offer 2
Free* sedation for dentistry (performed by us!) when combined with a zone visit.
All vets and equine dental dental technicians do a better job when a small amount of sedation is given prior to the teeth being done..the very back teeth are almost inaccessible in an unsedated horse ; this can lead to hooks and ramps appearing. We want to demonstrate how the use of mild sedation decreases the stress for both horse and owner (and vet) so why not try it for free !!
Zone visit (0-10miles ) ………..£12
Routine teeth rasp and oral exam…£46
Set amount of sedation *…………£0
* both offers must be mentioned at the time of booking and includes up to 0.4ml of detomidine which is enough for most horses, any extra will be chargeable, so if you have one that is an elephant (!) or very, very difficult to do some extra (chargeable) sedation may be needed.
Exciting news ! We are just in the process of signing a lease on a new office near Clent . We already cover this area and seem to be doing more and more work that way so in response to client wishes we have decided to open a dedicated office where you can book calls more locally (and pay a lower visit fee!) , pick drugs up , drop off paperwork etc. Work that cannot be done at your yard such as kissing spine operations, orthopaedic surgery, poor performance investigations, liver biopsy etc etc can be carried out at our large purpose built clinic in Ullenhall which is 17 miles from the new office. Other work such as xrays, scanning , castration , teeth , sick horses can of coursebe done at your premises as usual.
We will keep you updated as soon as the new branch is up and running but in the meantime we are registering new clients in the Chaddesley, Kinver and East, Stourbridge , Clent and Belbroughton areas daily. Until we are up and running we are able to offer discounted visits at certain times of the day with our vet Jo Gwynne who used to work at St Georges so is known to many of you already.
Lots has happened since we last updated this; our excuse is that we were having a new website built that works on mobiles as well as computers!
Happy Christmas to all our valued clients!
