Blaircourt Equine Veterinary Clinic has been in existence for over 25 years. In April 2003, the current partners, Mark Meter and Patrick Martin, took over the reins of the practice, and have seen a huge growth in clientele. With a strong emphasis on using up-to-date diagnostic methods and following these up with top-class treatment options, the practice has gone from strength to strength. We pride ourselves on breaking down the old-school perception that the vet is somehow the most important person in the equation, and recognise the importance of having an honest and trusting client-vet relationship. The vets at Blaircourt are always available for informal chats on the telephone to reassure owners over individual cases.
Our veterinary care covers all aspects of preventative medicine, such as worming schedules and routine dentistry, to more complicated medical matters such as colic and respiratory disease. A large proportion of our time is spent working up lame or poorly performing horses, and we have developed an excellent reputation in this field, especially when faced with chronic, low-grade lamenesses.
We have also developed excellent working relationships with surrounding referral practices, and should we feel it necessary, we may advise referring your horse to one of these hospitals whether it be for emergency colic surgery or further diagnostics, such as scintigraphy or MRI.
