Congratulations to our lovely client Claire Clark and the horse Cabeza, owned by Al Shira'aa Farms, for this superb perfomance last Sunday at the Hanslope Endurance RideπŸ₯‡πŸ₯‚πŸΎ Well done you both! πŸ‘πŸ‘

Congratulations to Claire Clark who won the 80km with Cabeza πŸ‘ πŸ₯‡

Claire said: β€œHanslope was my choice of venue to do my first ride over 65km. I chose to do the 81km with Cabeza (aka Brian).

We had a wonderful ride. Lots of long grass stretches on which to canter, lovely scenery and friendly and welcoming volunteers and stewards.
It has been my favourite ride so far this year!
We sailed through all the vettings and won the class. A bonus result to a great day out.
I’ll be back again next year.”

Embryo transfer involves flushing a fertilised embryo from the donor mare at 8-9 days post ovulation and then transfering into a well synchronised recipient mare 🐴

Here at DL Equine Veterinary Services we are able to offer a full embryo transfer service if you are able to provide at least 2 recipient mares for each donor mare πŸ”¬

However, if you are unable to provide the required recipient mares we can arrange to transport the embryo to an equine repro center where they can provide a recipient mare suitable for the transfer. This involves shipping the embryo to be implanted in a recipient mare that has been synchronised to be at the same point in the oestrus cycle as the donor mare. The donor mare would be prepared and inseminated at your yard, then after 8-9 days she is then flushed, the embryo is collected, packaged and chilled then dispatched via courier to be transferred into the recipient within a few hours 🚚

Please contact us for more detailed info about our embryo transfer program and related fees ☎️

Navicular syndrome describes a condition where pain arises from the navicular apparatus in the foot. It is a common cause of lameness in horses, frequently related to poor foot conformation, especially long toes and low heels, which predispose the horse to develop an excessive biomechanical strain on the heel area. ⚠️ ⚠️⚠️

πŸ“ Non-surgical treatment is usually tailor made for each individual horse based on the severity of the lameness and includes rest and controller exercise, biphosponates administration such as tiludronate (Tildren), corrective shoeing and navicular bursa injection with anti-inflammatory drugs.

πŸ“ In the photo one of our clients horse, Misty a 7 y.o. showjumper filly, had MRI of the right foot which showed navicular syndrome. Our vet Dan medicated Misty's navicular bursa with corticosteroid drugs under sedation and under radiographic guidance, in order to reduce the inflammation in the navicular bursa and to improve the degree of lameness.πŸ’‰β˜’οΈ

We wish Misty a quick recovery and we cannot wait to see her competing again soon! πŸ‡πŸ‡πŸ‡

In the current scenario, here in the UK, where almost all the equine veterinary practices have been sold to corporates, here at DL Equine Veterinary Services we are very proud to be fully indipendent πŸŽ‰πŸ΄

We believe that in order to offer the best quality service to our client and the best care to our patients, vets need to build a solid and trustful relationship with their clients, with the goal to always put the health and the welfare of horses in first place. πŸ‘¨β€βš•οΈπŸ΄

The discussion of independent and corporate-owned vet practices in the equine vet industry have arisen as the ongoing vet shortage continues

When a horse owner has to assess a wound there are a few important things to consider 🚨

πŸ“ How large and deep is the wound? Wounds that involve the full thickness of the skin and are more than a few centimetres in length may require suturing and should always be assessed by a vet.

πŸ“ How contaminated is it? This will affect how much cleaning and flushing the wound requires.

πŸ“ How much bleeding is there? If there is large amount of blood draining from the wound, or blood is pumping from the wound then this should be dealt with immediately

Here there is a picture of Tango, which two days ago has been found in the paddock with a large laceration on his left shoulder. Wound has been assessed by our vet Dan, cleaned and disinfected, and then the two layers of tissue have been sutured βœ…πŸͺ‘

Breeding season 2024 has started! πŸŽ‰πŸΎYesterday one of our clients had this beautiful c**t born early in the morning. Dan has been called out to assist the mare as the little c**t had a flexed carpus which was complicating the foaling and this was promptly corrected.

I you think your mare needs assistance when she is giving birth do not hesitate to call the vet, as timing can be very important during foaling 🚨

Call and have a chat with us to see the packages we offer for the 2024 breeding season! 🐎

Primary courses and boosters given from 1st January 2024 onwards must adhere to any new rules. Vaccines given prior to this date are still compliant as long as they were in line with the previous rules at the time of vaccination. If the first vaccine was given in 2023, but the second vaccine will be given on or after 1st January 2024, either the previous rules or the updated rules can be followed for timing of the second vaccine, but we would advise checking with the appropriate organisation.

Overall, if the following timings are adhered to, the vaccinations should comply with all current competing organisation rules:

πŸ“ Second vaccine given 21-60 days after the first vaccine.

πŸ“ Third vaccine (first booster) given 120-180 days after the second vaccine.

πŸ“ Subsequent boosters given within 12 months of the previous booster for all bodies except BHA where vaccines must be given every 6 months.

➑ For BD and FEI, a vaccine must be given within 6 months and 21 days before arrival at a competition.

➑ The horse can first compete 7 days after the second vaccine. - The horse cannot compete within 7 days after any vaccine.

➑ The different equestrian bodies have different guidelines for delayed boosters in Autumn 2022 due to a vaccine shortage, please check with your competing organisation if your horse was affected by this.
