Equine Services

Our equine vets provide a complete range of services to ensure the health and well-being of your horses. We will regularly make contact with you to check your horse’s progress following treatments.

Diagnostic testing

By taking blood samples, we can thoroughly asses the horse’s health. This will ensure the diagnosis is correct and the treatment is exactly right for them.

Vaccinations

Horse vaccination
Vaccinations are vital to equine health management. They help protect against a number of infectious diseases such as Tetanus, Strangles and Herpes (EHV.) Often pathogens that effect horses appear without warning so waiting until your horse appears at high risk may be too late to avoid serious illness, a large bill and potentially death.
