Ralph Hege (Partner)


Ralph grew up outside Zurich, Switzerland. He’s graduated as a doctor in veterinary medicine from the University of Zurich in 1999. He gained his first experience in equine medicine and surgery during National Service in the Army Vet Troops. He then moved on to work at an equine clinic in Switzerland for 3 years before furthering his knowledge in a Racehorse and Standardbred Clinic in France. In 2005, he came over to England. After working as a senior associate for a large equine clinic in Essex he became the head equine vet at a busy first opinion equine practice at the border to Hertfordshire. Ralph’s main interests are lameness diagnostics with a particular focus on neck and back problems, performance problems as well as orthopaedic and soft tissue surgeries. Ralph enjoys as much time as possible with his wife Vickky and their son Lucien.
