Equine examination and diagnostics
In addition to offering an ambulatory service we are equipped with a purpose built in-house examination and treatment area. It has a rubberised floor and is furnished with specialist stocks that can be used for restraining horses to perform standing surgical procedures, height measurements and fertility work.
We can carry out in-depth diagnostic procedures from endoscopy to high quality diagnostic imaging using powerful on-site equipment such as Digital X-Ray, Ultrasound and ECGs to accurately assess disease conditions without having to refer you and your horse away.
Our Eklin Digital Radiography (x-ray) System provides state-of-the-art imaging and diagnostic capabilities for lameness and pre-purchase as well as equine veterinary medicine
We are associated with a number of specialist consultants who have expertise in particular areas of equine medicine and surgery. Consultants regularly attend the practice to assist with specialised ultrasound, arthroscopic, orthopaedic, upper respiratory and laryngeal problems.
The findings are thoroughly discussed with the owner before any recommended treatment begins.
When surgery is required, we have a fully equipped equine surgical suite here at the practice with in-patient stables where our 24 hour nursing staff care for our patients during the important post operative recovery period.
