Allocated Zone Visit Days

If you cannot be available throughout the day - a zone visit would not be appropriate

 

Criteria for booking

Zone visits must be pre-booked at least the day before but we advise you book well in advance to ensure availability; they are run on a first come first served basis.

To make the system work we need to be flexible about the vet attending and time of day.

Zone vists are for routine work only i.e. vaccinations, identity documents and micro-chipping, mite injections, blood samples, repeat prescription checks, sedate for clipping, pre-castration checks.

Zone visits are not appropriate for dental treatment, unwell horses, castrations, pre-purchase examinations, conditions such as lameness/eye and skin problems/re-examinations/behavioural issues/wounds/reproduction. A normal veterinary visit and consultation are available for these.

It is important to contact the office between 8.30-8.45am on the morning of your visit to be given your two-hour allocated time slot; failure to confirm your time will result in your zone visit being cancelled.

Your or a responsible person must be available throughout the 2 hours to be with your horse and answer any questions the vet may have. If nobody is available when the vet arrives, your visit will be cancelled and a fee of £15 incurred.

We require all zone visits to be paid for at the time of the visit which can be cash, card of online banking transfer whilst the vet is present. 

 

Significant problems occur when clients forget or cancel at the last minute. Requests for updates on the arrival of the vet cannot be satisfied.
