As promised we have managed to secure some support from our vaccine supplier for those of you who had to miss annual vaccinations due to lockdown
With the Scottish Government’s planned relaxation of some lockdown measures this week we have been working towards increasing our capacity to offer all routine work again.
After the initial disappointment about the cancellation of our planned programme of talks and workshops, the team at Loch Leven Equine Practice quickly re-grouped and decided that if horse owners can't come to the talks, the practice would just have to go directly to them!
Our latest newsletter is here with all of the most recent news from Team LLEP, a date for your diary, some fun facts about our vets and some info on what to look out for with laminitis
With Covid 19 putting a stop to our planned programme of veterinary talks we are really excited to bring our popular talks directly to you at home instead! This means we can keep you and our team safe and still have a fun evening learning about how to keep your horse healthy and happy.
After the announcements from both the Scottish and UK Government over the weekend we have taken some time to think about what this means for us, our clients and the wider equine community
Firstly thank you to each and everyone of you who have supported our decisions to keep our team and our clients safe, minimise the spread of COVID 19 and prevent the NHS from becoming overwhelmed. You have allowed us to make these decisions without added pressure to continue on as normal and we are incredibly grateful
The British Equestrian Federation, in conjunction with the British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) and the British Horseracing Authority (BHA), has approved a proposal regarding the vaccination schedule for equine influenza in competition horses competing under its member bodies. The move has been made in order to help riders, owners and vets tackle the significant logistical challenges caused by the coronavirus pandemic, and provide clarity for all.
Following the Prime Minister’s statement last night which has put the whole of the UK into lockdown it would be fair to say that we are experiencing an unprecedented public health emergency.
We know that in amongst all of the new restrictions, uncertainty and fear that your horse’s health and wellbeing is adding another level of stress for many of our clients. Read more about what measures we have put in place and what we are doing to try to minimise the impact on our clients
Given the escalation of the Coronavirus situation we thought our clients might appreciate an update. We have been monitoring the situation closely and updating our protocol accordingly.
Our main priority is to be able to continue to offer our clients and patients a ‘normal’ service providing both routine and emergency veterinary care for your horses whilst protecting the wellbeing of our clients and team wherever possible.
The team at LLEP and some of our local farriers enjoyed a fantastic morning of CPD and bacon rolls with the very experienced Jim Ferrie F.W.C.F presenting a talk on Shoeing the Fore-limb in 3 Dimensions.
