Gastroscope Day August 2020

 

Ulcershield

We will be holding a Gastroscoping Day with Alex Macpherson from Randlab on:
 
Date: TBC (August 2020)
Time: TBC
Location: 78 Gray Road, Kyabram
 
Scopes are free of charge, however there will be a small fee to cover the cost of sedation.
Bookings are essential as places are limited and fill up fast.
 
On arrival please put your horse in one of our yards and we will assist you as soon as possible.
 
REMINDER FASTING IS REQUIRED FOR THIS PROCEDURE!
 
*FOOD:
Your horse requires fasting for a period of no less than 12 hours prior to their scheduled gastroscopy. Ideally the horse is boxed from the evening prior to the gastroscopy. At this time, all food and hay must then be removed from the horse’s yard/box/stable. Care must be taken to ensure that all scraps are also removed.
 
*WATER:
At no later than 4 hours but as many as 6 hours prior to the planned gastroscopy time, the horse should then have water removed from its enclosure. In periods of high temperature this should be restricted to 4 hours, but in cooler climates this can be extended to the full 6 hours.
 
 
If you missed out on this event, don't worry please call our office on 03 5852 2845 and we can put you on the list for the next event.
Looking forward to seeing you all!
