Regular dental care is very important to good horse management. All of the vets at Damory Veterinary Clinic carry equipment to allow us to safely examine your horse’s mouth and to perform routine dental work. We can also use sedative drugs if necessary to make the work less stressful for nervous horses. Some horses may have large overgrowths, which we can tackle using motorised equipment quickly and efficiently to minimise the distress caused to the horse.
The signs associated with dental disease can include quidding (dropping food), taking longer to eat, packing food in the cheeks, weight loss, a dull coat, bitting problems and head shaking. However, many horses cope very well with dental pain and outwardly may show no signs of a problem. It is therefore very important to have your horse’s teeth checked regularly.
We are holding a dental clinic at our Equine Clinic at Newton Farm, Sturminster Marshall on Saturday 6th September. We will have all of the equipment available to allow us to perform routine and remedial work as necessary and we are happy to carry out and discuss other routine veterinary care such as vaccination and worming at this time.
Places are limited so if you are interested in booking your horse in for the clinic then please contact the practice on 01258 452626 and speak to one of our equine team.
We're on the hunt for a new home for her - She is probably suited to a quieter house without a dog (she is quite wary of them!). If you think you can provide her with a loving new home, please contact the practice on 01258 452626 and ask to speak to a member of the nursing staff.
If you can't provide a new home for her, we'd greatly appreciate it if you could share her image and help her on her way to finding one. Thank you.
We are currently looking to expand our list of dogs that can donate blood. Donors must be in good health, under 8 years of age with a full vaccination history, at least 25kg body weight (but not overweight), and must not have traveled abroad or currently be on any medication. Unfortunately female dogs that have had a litter of puppies cannot donate as it causes changes in the makeup of their blood.
If you are interested, please contact the practice on 01258 452626 and ask to speak to one of our veterinary nurses.
They are all looking for new homes once they're a little bit older - If you're interested, please contact the practice and we can put you in touch with their owner.
Apologies once again for any inconvenience caused by the technical issues we are experiencing.
Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
On examination it was noted that he had a congenital defect known as atresia ani, which is an absence of an anal opening, so Ian Patton, one of our senior farm vets, surgically constructed him one.

As part of this initiative, up until the end of October 2014, any horse which has not been previously diagnosed with Cushing's Disease will qualify for a free laboratory test.
Please note that it is only the test itself which is offered free of charge, the visit charge and taking and processing of the blood sample are not included in the offer.
If you are suspicious that your horse may be affected by Cushing's Disease and are interested in having the test performed, please call us on 01258 452626 and one of our equine team will be happy to help.
