Our vets have a wide range of experience and interests and include several certificate holders. We are a nurse training practice and encourage our nurses to continue their education post qualification. We provide our own out of hours service to give our clients an excellent and complete on-site service with 24-hour nursing support.  Our equine facilities include 4 stables, stocks examination room, DR x-ray, gastroscope, videoscope, power float for dentals and ultra sound machine.  We have an equine nursing assistant to assist with work ups at yards on or site.
