Vet Scheme


This is an optional scheme where the mare owner pays a 'one off fee' to cover the costs of veterinary work necessary to help get your mare in foal and monitoring the development of early pregnancy) details of the few procedures excluded follows). The scheme also covers most veterinary procedures associated with foaling and care of the foal.
The advantaged for you, as a mare owner, are a fixed single fee with discount for prompt payment. Many mares need considerable monitoring and treatment after covering in addition to the routine swabbing and monitoring before the necessary for all mares. The costs of this can soon mount up, but if you are on a veterinary scheme, all these procedures are already paid for, enabling you to know your outlay veterinary fees for that breeding season regardless of the amount of veterinary work involved. Over the years, as a veterinary practice specialising in equine breeding work, we have found this offers the best approach to getting mares in foal as early as possible in the breeding season.
Even if your mare has normally been relatively straightforward to go in foal, we recommend our veterinary scheme as unforeseen problems may occur. Any particular requirements or suggestions you may have regarding the veterinary care for your mare should be communicated to us at the practice:
