As A Practice We Have Made Significant Investment In New Equipment For Medical Diagnosis And One Of Our Equine Veterinary Surgeons, Ben Crisp, Is Currently Studying For A Certificate In Equine Medicine.

Our Services Include:

  • GASTROSCOPY (endoscopic examination of the lining of the stomach). Currently the only method of diagnosis for gastric ulceration, an increasingly recognised condition.
  • CARDIOLOGY (examination of the heart). Ben has a particular interest in this field. The practice has a telemetric ECG (which allows measurement of the electrical activity of the heart at rest and exercise) as well as cardiac ultrasound.
  • IN HOUSE LABORATORY which allows us to perform FITNESS PROFILING in the equine athlete in training as well as a host of other tests.
  • HIGH QUALITY DIGITAL ULTRASOUND for examination of the heart and abdominal organs and for ULTRASOUND GUIDED ORGAN BIOPSY.
  • RESPIRATORY ENDOSCOPY for the diagnosis of respiratory disease.
