BEVA Trust launches appeal for volunteers
BEVA Trust clinics provide dental care, farriery, worming, microchipping, passports and castration.

Popular welfare and education clinics are set to restart in September.

BEVA Trust, the charitable arm of the British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA), has launched an appeal for volunteers to help with its popular education and welfare clinics.

The organisation is seeking equine vets and equine veterinary nurses for clinics starting in September. I
t comes as the clinics, run in collaboration with the British Horse Society, are set to get underway following a 15-month hiatus because of the pandemic. 

BEVA Trust chair Julian Samuelson said: “We are delighted to be able to start running these important clinics again. Volunteers will be required to assist with health checks, castrations, passports and micro-chipping.  It is also valuable to give dental health checks to the horses. If you can offer dental services, please let us know when you register your interest.” 

BEVA Trust and the BHS have worked together for the past six years, running education and welfare clinics across the UK. Supported by various other equine welfare charities, the clinics provide education, dental care, farriery, worming, microchipping, passports and castration. 

Organisers are seeking volunteers for clinics on Thursday 16 September at Clitheroe Auction Market in Lancashire and on Thursday 30 September at Ashford Cattle Market in Kent. Volunteers must be BEVA members and qualified vets or vet nurses, unless attending as a student with a university veterinary surgeon or lecturer.
