Another well organised and successful education and welfare castration clinic took place at the Kent Showground in September. An excellent venue for setting up working areas for the day. BEVA vet and vet nurse volunteers came out in force to support the day and were kept very busy throughout. The day iincorporated health checks, castrations, passporting & micro chipping and dental health checks. A total of 56 horses attended the clinic with 34 castrations.
Organisation of the day is the end result of tireless work taken on throughout the year. Gemma Stanford, Welfare Director of the BHS and her team work with other major horse equine charities including World Horse Welfare, Redwings and the RSPCA to open lines of communication and build and develop relationships with owners of horses deemed to be at risk.
