We use diagnostic ultrasound to look at structures within the body. This is a non-invasive imaging technique.

To prepare your pet for ultrasound, we will clip away some fur in order to get a good image by placing a probe on the skins surface.

We now have three different ultrasound machines which perhaps indicates how useful it is!

In our small animal patients we use ultrasound to assess organs in the abdomen, see if they look normal or abnormal, view the heart, and obtain some information about the chest cavity.

We use it in emergency situations, such as trauma to see I there is bleeding internally or air in the wrong place for example and as part of investigation into an unwell pet.

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.
