Dental Zones


Our Dental zone visit scheme is designed to allow you to have access to a dental visit, with no call out charge.

Our free zone visit allows for all routine work to be carried out without the visit fee. By planning ahead and making sure that you book your zone visit in before 12pm the working day before you can save money and keep on top of your horse’s health.

Please be aware that with our free zone visits you will not be able to request a time. All of the visits are plotted the day before the appointment and you will receive a call that afternoon with an approximate time (within 1 hour) for your visit. If we are unable to reach you we will either: leave a voicemail, send an email or send a text message with the appointment time and details. We then ask that you confirm that you have received the message so that we can plan the route for the dentist, it is important that you are there on time because the dentist may not be able to wait.


All our dental zone visit work will be undertaken by a qualified Equine Dental Technician with your horse under sedation administered by a veterinary surgeon. This gives us the best chance to provide the very best service for your horse. The sedating vet can also do vaccinations on these appointments. Visits are designed for standard dental appointments, examples of which are:

  • Routine dental examination
  • Routine dental rasp
  • Minor concerns
  • Vaccinations at the same time as dental work

For more complicated dental issues you will be offfered a standard appointment either with a veterinary surgeon in the field or you can attend our dental clinic at Hambleton Equine Clinic on a Thursday.

The 5 zones (see the map below) have been allocated days of the week as follows:


We request payment for all services at the time of the visit, by booking a zone visit you are agreeing to immediate payment. Please ensure you are able to pay the visiting vet at the time of your appointment. If you do not make payment at the time of the visit you will be invoiced with a visit charge.

If it is not clear exactly into which zone your location falls into please contact one of our reception team and they will be able to advise which day you qualify for.
