Do you think your horse is suffering from gastric ulcers?

Save £100 at the Holsworthy Clinic Gastroscopy Day - 26 July 2017

Gastric ulceration is very common. Recent studies have shown up to 90% of racehorses, up to 50% of leisure horses and 50% of foals are affected.

Symptoms are often vague. The use of gastroscopy can diagnose gastric ulcers which can then be treated quickly and effectively.

Penbode Equine Vets are holding their next gastroscopy day on Wednesday 26 July at the Holsworthy clinic, where you can get £100 off a scoping.

Contact your local Penbode Equine Clinic to find out more and to make your booking.
