Gastroscopy Day Special Offer

Download Gastroscopy Day Special Offer Document

We've had a good initial response to our Equine Gastroscopy Day and a few spaces are still available if you are interested in being involved.

At this point we’re very thankful to Kate Tobin Equestrian for hosting us at her 110 Upper Manaia Road property in Masterton, and we are currently booked in for October the 23rd October 2019.

We've attached some details about the procedure so have a read through. We're happy to take advantage of your horse being sedated to perform a dental if requested, and can easily run bloods for full panels or Selenium, faecal egg counts etc. Please do inform us of requests for these in advance so that we allow enough time on the day.

If your horse in insured it would be good practice to let them know that you are intending to take part.

The cost for the gastroscopy is $330, including sedation. Costs for other work are not included in this price.

If you would like to get booked in, or find out more, please email admin@vswai.co.nz or ring (06) 3782662. Places are limited and we’d prefer you are booked in by 9th October to give us time to run through the pre gastroscopy procedure and get paperwork organised.

We’re pleased to announce that members of Dressage Wairarapa get a $50 discount of the Gastroscopy as part of our ongoing sponsorship of the group.

Wolf Teeth in Horses

Wolf teeth are technically known as the first premolar teeth in horses. They usually erupt into the mouth at between five and twelve months of age, but do not continue to grow or erupt into the mouth as do the rest of the cheek teeth. It has been estimated that approximately seventy percent of horses will develop wolf teeth.
