Re-cap of Dental Month

A big thank you to everyone who took part in our April Dental Month!


Here at Kilmore Equine Clinic we love doing dental work and keeping your horses comfortable so they can eat and perform at their best!

A big thank you to Virbac Australia Horses for the amazing job they did on the faecal worm egg counts. Performing faecal egg counts we found out many horses didn’t actually require de-worming at this time. By treating horses when necessary we can help to reduce the growing problem of parasite resistance to our de-worming products. It’s just an added bonus that the money saved on a wormer can go towards a new pair of shoes, chocolate (a team favourite here), wine or beer – which ever you prefer!

Check out some of the photos we took over the dental month – who would have thought we would see such amazing things?!
