Routine Castration Clinics

During the cooler months, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about any colts which are of the age that need castrating.

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

The benefits of the castrate clinics include the procedure being carried out in a controlled environment with the assistance of the Bell Equine nursing team, along with a 20% reduction in cost of the procedure. We will also be offering 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 estimated 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 of 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:

- 6th February 2019

​- 6th March 2019

​- 3rd April 2019

- 17th April 2019

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