What we do
Routine Equine Health

We strongly recommend that all horses, ponies and donkeys are regularly vaccinated against the most common diseases.

Roundworms, tapeworms and bots can infect your horse causing several problems including weight loss, failure to thrive, mild to severe colic and diarrhoea.

Dental health is of utmost importance to your horse’s well-being, whether it is a retired companion or performance horse. As qualified vets we are trained to look at and assess your horse’s teeth and treat any problems found.

Thankfully many causes of lameness are simple and easily treated, however there are many causes that may require further investigation at the surgery.

Castration is one of the most common surgical procedures we perform. It is a service we can offer at the clinic or on your yard if you have a clean stable, good lighting and a supply of clean water.

We are a BEVA approved AI practice and also offer embryo transfer as a service.

If your horse does not have a passport your insurance may be invalid; you may also be liable to prosecution if you attempt to sell the horse.

Equine gastric ulcer syndrome (EGUS) is a common condition which can affect all horses; however symptoms can be subtle and are not unique to EGUS.

Having one of our experienced equine vets perform a pre-purchase examination of your proposed new horse, will help you make the right decision about the suitability of the horse or pony for the intended use.
