Routine castration clinic

For our registered clients, we shall be holding our monthly castration clinics at the hospital during the autumn months.

The benefits of the castrate clinics include the procedure being carried out by one of our vets in a controlled environment with the assistance of the experienced Bell Equine nursing team, along with a 20% reduction in cost of the procedure. We will also offer a reduction in the cost of passporting (including microchip) on the day if required.

There are a few factors which need to be considered:

  • The colt must be under 4 years of age and both testicles must be palpable. The procedure will be carried out under injectable anaesthesia only. Closed castrates under inhalant anaesthesia are priced separately and can be discussed if required
  • A £50 pre-payment is required on booking due to the high demand for spaces
  • Payment is required in full on the day of the procedure
  • Prices are set as to weight and size and do not include:

         - Vaccinations or passport & microchip (although passporting is offered at a reduced cost if

            carried out at the time as the procedure. This can be arranged at the time of booking)

         - Post castration antibiotics (not routinely used)

         - Complications requiring further treatment

The clinics will be held on the following dates:

- 23rd October 2019

​- 12th November 2019​

​Weather and numbers depending, we shall confirm a final date for late November / early December.

Please call the clinic on 01622 813700 for further information, to book in or to discuss any aspect of the castration procedure.
