Preventative Healthcare:

At the heart of Farr & Pursey Equine (horse vets Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire) is preventative medicine.

It has become more apparent in human medicine that prevention saves lives and money – why should the veterinary industry be any different? We pride ourselves in having protocols for not only routine healthcare topics such as vaccinations and worming, but also for a variety of infectious diseases, policies to protect public health and to improve the countrywide herd immunity.

Do you want to know more? From single horse owners to livery yards we have protocols that could help you save time, money and more importantly prevent patients having to endure clinical disease.

Lamenesses:

From a ‘pus in the foot’ to a full diagnostic lameness workup including nerve and joint block, X-rays and ultrasound – we can help.

We have some of the best non-referral equipment in the area, specifically designed to give us the most detailed information about a patient’s clinical condition. From the start we had a mandate to provide an up-to-date efficient, but more importantly affordable service.

Medical Investigations:

From a case of intense itching to profound weight loss we have a particular interest in your horse’s well-being. At Farr & Pursey Equine vets we have a focus on preventative medicine, however we appreciate prevention is not always an option – therefore we pride ourselves in the ability to help diagnose, treat and if necessary consult referral specialists to help control / manage and treat a plethora of medical conditions.

With an ageing equine population we are also very aware that there is an increasing requirement for ongoing medical intervention in order to maintain the health and happiness of the ageing equine patient. Using the latest diagnostic tests and keeping up-to-date with new treatments we are more than equipped to help with any patient’s needs.

Services - Dentistry and horses teeth

Dentistry:

Regular dental examinations are vital for you horse’s wellbeing.  Routine dental treatments help to ensure the teeth are working efficiently at grinding and breaking down food before it enters the stomach.  If a horse is unable to do this effectively, they will not be able to utilise the nutrients in the feed and may lose weight.  If teeth become sharp and/or large hooks develop, the horse may go on to develop painful cheek ulcers which can reduce performance and make the horse reluctant to eat.  Occasionally we also identify problems such as periodontal disease, fractures and diastemata (gaps between teeth), all of which require more specialist treatment.

For the majority of horses, annual dental checks with routine rasping are sufficient to keep the mouth healthy and the teeth in good order.  Other horses, however, will require more frequent check-ups and may require more specialist procedures.  Horses normally cope very well with routine dental procedures but, for more nervous patients, treatment can be performed under sedation.

As well as routine dental work, we also offer:

  • Wolf teeth removal
  • Remedial dentistry using battery-powered motorised dental equipment
  • Dental radiography
  • Dental surgery, including extractions, under standing sedation

If you would like to discuss the specific dental needs of your horse please do not hesitate to speak to one of the equine vets.
