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 lameness’s. We also have close 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.
