    AI should give as good a chance of conceiving as natural service but the conception rate depends on the individual mare and the quality of the semen A healthy young mare will have a much higher conception rate than an older mare that has had previous infertility or uterine infection However mares of any age that repeatedly contract uterine infections after covering may have a better rate of conception with AI Chilled semen is best inseminated within 24 hours of collection and 12 hours of ovulation Ultrasound examination is therefore required daily once the mare is ready to ovulate Scanning provides a forecast of when the mare is likely to ovulate so that we can contact the stud in good time to ensure timely delivery of the semen After insemination a further visit is required to ensure that ovulation has occurred Throughout the time the mare is in season it is important that you are available throughout the day so that we can visit whenever appropriate The main advantages of chilled AI are The mare does not have to travel to the stallion Mares that are more susceptible to post covering uterine infections after covering have a better chance of conceiving with AI than natural service Increased conception rates over frozen semen Chilled AI package We offer a fixed price of 428 10 plus VAT for AI with chilled semen for one reproductive cycle This includes Pre breeding manual examination and ultrasound scan A prostaglandin injection to synchronise the mare if necessary Ultrasound examinations and journeys once the mare is in season A uterine smear and swab taken at the beginning of the season primarily to exclude signs of infection An injection of Chorulon or implantation with Ovuplant where necessary Microscopic analysis of semen quality motility and proportion live Insemination

  • Dentistry | Stable Close Equine Practice | Winchester, Hampshire
    dentistry and we have high quality motorised dental equipment Unlike humans horses teeth continually erupt throughout life and this can lead to abnormalities of wear and eruption that are very different from the problems seen in human dentistry Horses are also susceptible to dental abscesses and these can often be prevented by early detection of disease such as infundibular caries and periodontal pocketing A thorough dental examination is just as important as routine rasping For some horses dental checks will be required annually however many horses will require 6 monthly checks especially those that are young old competing regularly or those that have significant dental abnormalities such as missing teeth We find that the quality of work that can be carried out is often limitted by the horse s tolerance to dental work Using sedation and modern battery powered dental instruments we can now correct abnormalities more effectively than before with minimal stress to the horse At Stable Close Equine Practice this is our preferred method of performing routine dentistry How about using an equine dental technician There are some excellent equine dental technicians EDTs in Hampshire and we regularly work with several of them We are happy to work

  • Colic | Stable Close Equine Practice | Winchester, Hampshire
    in a place where it will injure itself if it rolls a large soft sand school is ideal However walking the horse may take its mind off the colic and help move any trapped gas Watch out for your own safety A thrashing colicky horse can be dangerous and will have little regard for your safety You are no use to your horse if you get injured Remove all feed If you are a client of this practice then phone us for advice you may need a visit We sometimes hear clients say they didn t think their horse s colic was serious because it was still passing droppings Although that is a good sign it does not rule out a more serious issue What makes a horse colicky There are several reasons for intestinal pain Abnormal motility of the intestine is probably the most common This can result in a cramp like spasm of the intestinal wall which may become painful Some horses are more prone to this type of colic although it can also be associated with a sudden change in diet or management Colic can also result from the intestine becoming distended and stretched If a horse eats a large volume of fibrous feed such as straw and then stands in all day they may develop an impaction which stretches the wall of the intestine Normal intestine above Distended intestine below Different types of abnormal gut motility Twisted intestine Why does a horse get colic The three main types of intestinal colic spasmodic impaction gassy are generally related to feed and management A rich diet fed infrequently or a sudden change to rich grass are the most common causes of gassy or spasmodic colic whereas impactions are usually caused by inactive horses on box rest and eating

  • Strangles | Stable Close Equine Practice | Winchester, Hampshire
    clinical signs Diagnosis The diagnosis is relatively straightforward in horses that develop the classical signs and is confirmed by taking a swab from the back of the horse s nasal cavity nasopharynx or by directly swabbing a draining abscess There is also a blood test which can identify whether horses have antibodies immunity against the strangles bacteria High antibody levels indicate recent infection including horses which are carriers and so this is a useful test for screening new horses coming into a yard In many cases the only accurate test is to take a lavage from the guttural pouches These are large air filled cavities which form part of the eustachian tube Using an endoscope we can enter the pouches and flush them through with saline collecting the fluid that runs back out of the horse s nose This fluid can be analysed for both live and dead bacteria This test is particularly used for detecting carrier horses and screening horses that have high antibody levels Transmission of the disease Once strangles has entered a yard it can spread quickly between horses either by direct contact or indirectly through equipment or people The bacteria are shed in nasal discharge and in pus draining from open abscesses They can survive in the environment for long periods and can survive in water troughs for at least 4 weeks Good hygiene is therefore essential in controlling the disease The bacteria infect the lymph nodes of a horse via aspiration into their respiratory tract Clinical signs develop with 3 14 days after infection Treatment Treatment of the individual patient is primarily supportive nursing care Your vet will administer non steroidal anti inflammatory medication such as Finadyne or Bute to control their increased body temperature Antibiotics are not always used as they cannot easily penetrate the abscess capsule and may slow down the horse s recovery by preventing the abscesses from draining The decision to give antibiotics depends on the stage of the infection and will be decided by the attending vet Applying a hot compress to the enlarged lymph nodes may be advised to encourage the abscesses to rupture and after they have burst flushing the cavity with antiseptic will be required until they have healed It will take several weeks for them to totally heal up Control of Infection The most important aspect to limit the spread of disease is by maintaining strict hygiene and isolation of all infected horses Early detection of disease by closely monitoring the body temperatures of in contact animals and immediately segregating any suspected cases will significantly reduce the number of horses that come down with clinical disease The disinfectant Virkon is effective at killing the bacteria and foot dips and the use of gloves when handling infected horses is paramount Any equipment belonging to the horse should not be shared and should be thoroughly disinfected after use including forks and wheelbarrows used to muck out The premises must be isolated so that no in contact animals leave

  • Sarcoids | Stable Close Equine Practice | Winchester, Hampshire
    eyes Verrucose Sarcoids These are raised knobbly dark areas that often spread into poorly defined margins They can also be ulcerated on occasions Nodular Sarcoids These are firm and nodular skin lumps which may have normal skin over them Fibroblastic Sarcoids These are ulcerated weeping raised sore lesions that may develop a stalk and become cauliflower like They can develop in any site Mixed Sarcoids Sarcoids are commonly a mixture of two or more of the forms described above Malevolent Sarcoids These are rare invasive sarcoids that invade deeper tissues beneath the skin Location Location Location A small sarcoid in an area which has plenty of loose skin and does not rub on tack is easier to treat and less problematic than a sarcoid in more sensitive areas Particular problems are sarcoids around the eyes on the ears at the corners of the lips where a bit rubs and on the girth line These need aggressive treatment whilst still small It is especially important to treat sarcoids around eyes before they enlarge Is the lump on my horse a sarcoid Although experienced equine vets are good at spotting sarcoids a definitive diagnosis can only be made by looking at a biopsy or tissue sample under the microscope This needs to be sent off to a laboratory However taking a biopsy without removing the entire sarcoid can make it more aggressive so in most cases we start treatment based on the location and character of the lesions Possible treatments There are many different treatments for sarcoids Where a condition has many different treatments it means that none of them are completely satisfactory we help you chose which treatment is best based on the location number and type of the lesions Banding with rubber rings Banding is a very satisfactory treatment where the sarcoid has a distinct neck or stalk it is cheap and has a high success rate Unfortunately it is not suitable for sarcoids which have no neck In general if a ring can go over the whole sarcoid without coming off it is the first line of treatment We often use lamb castration rings but sometimes use larger rubber bands Freezing with liquid cryosurgery We use liquid nitrogen for treating many sarcoids It is best used for treatment of flat sarcoids and less successful for deep ones Topical medication In some cases we recommend application of topical treatments Often because of the location or type of lesion These can include drugs such as Imiquimod or Aldara an immune response modifier Tazarotene or Zorac a topical retinoid used for treating psoriasis in people XXterra an ointment which contains an extract of Sanguinara canadensis Chemotherapy drugs applied as a cream onto the sarcoid This can be an effective treatment for some sarcoids We use a cream supplied by the University of Liverpool and need to take photos of the sarcoids in order to apply for a supply of cream Although it has a good success rate it is a relatively expensive
