Care Plan Background Designed to help create a bond between horse owners and their vets Allows more contact with vet without worrying about finances All annual health requirements are within one plan Paying monthly helps you to budget and helps the practice to stabilise income That means we can offer discounts!
What are the benefits? Easy payments each month, similar to paying for livery or insurance With two visits included plus vaccines, dentals and worm egg counts, all your horse needs for a healthy year is under one plan Special plans have been developed for those that need a little more care Extra discounts are included in the plan which make it even more attractive You save money!
What does the essential plan include? Two visits Annual vaccination and health checks Annual dental care Worm egg counts and tapeworm Discounts on diagnostics like endoscope/radiographs/ultrasound External discounts such as school hire and tack shops Ability to spread payments on larger bills
Extra help for those that need it.. Performance and competition horses need a little bit more investment A yearly blood sample for a complete health check allows any problems to be picked up early Teeth should be checked every 6 months so this is included too And we know that lameness is a big issue so time for trot ups and flexion tests every 6 months is a must It costs a little bit more for all this extra care but the value for money is unquestionable
Extra help for those that need it.. Laminitic horses and ponies, or those suffering from cushings disease are at risk all year round Blood sampling for key parameters linked to increased risk of laminitis should be undertaken at least once a year and guess what – it’s in the plan We’ve gone even further for our golden oldies and x-rays of both front feet, every year, to aid laminitis detection and management is included too Plus we will keep an eye on those teeth every 6 months Fantastic package that could ultimately lead to increased longevity and we are very proud to offer it, above and beyond any other local plan!
