Chemotherapy / cancer care

Sadly we diagnose cancers in pets quite often, which partly reflects our pets long lives these days. Knowledge and our ability to diagnose cancers has really progressed in the veterinary profession such that we are able to offer a variety of options in order to treat or manage these cases.

This might involve surgery, medicines including chemotherapy options or keeping our pets as comfortable and happy as possible. The most important factor is our patient’s welfare and as we have to make decisions on their behalf our aim is always to maintain or improve quality of life.

We often liase with a specialist service, chemopet who provide us with advice on the latest options for treatment and supply medications tailored for each pet. The decision to go down this route is always a discussion, but can be really rewarding.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture utilises the body’s nervous system to block pain signals and encourage the central nervous system to release natural painkillers.

In non painful conditions acupuncture can help to reset the body to normal functioning.

How will my horse respond to Acupuncture?

Most of the time they accept the fine needles very well and often become
relaxed and sleepy during the treatment Often they appear to look forward to the next treatment when they come back to the practice.

Sometimes horses may react to the sensation as though they are expecting pain, but then relax because it does not occur.

Treatment Regime & Costs

We recommend a weekly treatment plan for the first 4-6 weeks and then a maintenance plan will be drawn up for your horse.

The cost is £42 per treatment at the practice. Visit fee applies if you have the treatment at your yard. Group bookings can be accommodated. Please call the team to discuss and book your consultation.
