Zone Visits

We now offer zone visits at Catley Cross Vets

In the light of double-digit inflation and the significant increase seen in the cost of living (and owning horses!) over the past year or so we at Catley Cross feel a Zone Visit Scheme may be of benefit to our clients.

The Zone Visit Scheme enables certain pre-booked routine work to be carried out with a significantly reduced visit fee (half-price).  As with any visit, if five or more horses are seen at the same premises during a single visit then no visit fee is charged at all.  If less than five horses are seen the half-price visit fee is divided equally between horse owners.

What services are available on a Zone Visit?

  • Vaccinations
  • Routine dentals
  • Passport & microchip
  • Routine Health checks
  • Blood sampling for routine monitoring
  • Uncomplicated suture/staple removal

How will it work?

We have divided our practice area into eight zones (see maps).  We will visit each zone under the scheme once a month as per the schedule below:

Zone 1                  First Tuesday of every month

Zone 8                  First Thursday of every month

Zone 2                  Second Tuesday of every month

Zone 5                  Second Thursday of every month

Zone 3                  Third Tuesday of every month

Zone 6                  Third Thursday of every month

Zone 7                  Fourth Tuesday of every month

Zone 4                  Fourth Thursday of every month
