The equine side of the practice is constantly expanding and evolving. We cover all aspects of equine work from the elite performance horse to miniature Shetlands. When the practice moved to our current premises in the year 2000, it was essential that we invested in full hospitalisation and surgical facilities to enhance the level of care we can offer. The location of the practice, very close to major roads, means that your horse’s journey to us is as stress-free as possible.
