PRE-SEASON HEALTH CHECK
Are you excited to start preparing for the next season? Do you want to ensure your horse is fit, well and ready to get out there? We have put together a Pre-Season Health assessment to give you peace of mind that your horse is ready and well. This is at a vastly discounted rate of £150 (worth over £350). It includes a full health assessment, gastroscopy (including sedation) and dynamic orthopaedic assessment. It also includes a 10% discount off all supplements to keep your horse in tiptop condition. Ring the clinic on 01622 737884 to chat through this with a vet or book in your assessment with our reception team.
We are excited to announce the following additions to the Newnham Court Equine Team:
Alice Irons: Many of you will recognise Alice from our reception desk. She has now joined our nursing team, and is enjoying getting more hands on with our patients. Alice has a degree in Equine Management and Training, and has a gentle giant horse called Platinum.
Emma Crawford: Emma has been interested in horses since a young age, and competes successfully in British Dressage with her horse Cass. She is looking forward to meeting you all and building her veterinary knowledge.
Rebecca Goacher: Becky has taken on maternity cover for senior receptionist Lindsay, who gave birth to a beautiful baby boy in early February (congratulations Lindsay!). Becky previously worked in HR, and has a coloured horse called Ginny, with whom she enjoys cross-country schooling and going to local shows.
Josh Eustace: Josh qualified from Edinburgh vet school, and worked in ambulatory practice near home in Wiltshire before joining us as an intern veterinary surgeon. Josh’s professional interests include dentistry, and emergency medicine. He is also interested in animal welfare, and has spent time working as a volunteer vet in Morocco.
We are very pleased to welcome our new intern, Molly Scott, to the team. Molly studied at the Royal Veterinary College, during which time she completed several hospital externships, as well as seeing practice here at Newnham Court. She enjoys all aspects of equine work, but is particularly interested in internal medicine and ophthalmology. During her spare time she enjoys cycling, sailing and exploring with her labrador Ludo.
