Our Services

Our practice provides a wide range of services, and our medical care is underpinned by a wide range medical and surgical treatments.

Mobile Radiography

Including full sets of pre-purchase and insurance radiographs. The mobile unit enables our staff, doctors, or nurses to take the unit to the patient rather than having the patients come into the hospital.


An imaging technique in which deep structures of the body are visualized. It is used for a variety of purposes, including scanning tendons, colic’s, and stud medicine.

Video Endoscopy

Video endoscopy is used for direct, visual examination of internal structures – including the nasal cavity, guttural pouch, larynx, trachea, oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, and descending colon.


We are happy to talk to livery groups, riding, and pony clubs about any aspect of horse health and care.

Medical Investigations

Weight loss, liver disease, chronic coughing, skin disease, recurrent colic, neurological disease, poor performance examinations and lameness examinations.

E.C.G and full cardiac workups for show, race and endurance horses’ patients are important and is done either in-hospital or at the stable.

Referral Work

We welcome referrals of cases from other veterinary practices for investigation and/or treatment.

Neonatal Care

Post-foaling checks, plasma transfusions, correction of angular and flexor limb deformities, hernia repair.

Colic Surgery

Colic surgery is routinely performed in our in-house equine theatre. Careful consideration and treatments are discussed with the client before surgery is performed. Colic surgery is not taken lightly and performed only, when necessary, at the discussion of the surgeon and usually with consultation with our medical physician.

In-house Laboratory

Including routine blood Biochemistry, Haematology, joint fluid cytology, vaginal and blood smears, as well as Worm Egg Floatation.

Referral Pathology laboratories are used for further blood biochemistry, histopathology, and serological testing.

Lameness Workup

Lameness workups are done either on the farm or at the hospital. This is a complex problem and often requires lengthy diagnostics with nerve blocks, radiographs, and ultrasound examinations.


For all surgical procedures, the patients have a full anaesthetic monitoring team, as well as the surgical team. This consists of a vet and nurse that monitor the anaesthetic and the patient throughout the procedure. This includes arterial blood pressure monitoring, ECG cardiac monitoring, Carbon Dioxide output and oxygenation of the blood.


We provide a wide range of vaccinations for a horse’s routine annual vaccinations. These vaccinations include AHS I and II, West Nile, Flu, Tetanus, Flu and Tetanus, Herpes, Improvac, and Depo Provera.

Referral Pathology

In-house Stabling

We have four in-house stables for stabling sick or recovering patients. There are also outdoor paddocks for keeping the patients with an examination stall.

Pre-Purchase Vetting

Our vets are available for pre-purchase examinations for all types of horses.
