Small Animal & Equine Veterinary Practice

We pride ourselves in providing first class veterinary care in a relaxed and friendly environment

Zone Visits

All our equine clients are eligible to register for our zone visit scheme. Once registered to a zone (North, South, East, West) you can book a visit on your zone day (always a Wednesday) and not pay a visit fee. Times cannot be requested on a zone day but clients are usually given a 30 minute time slot for when the vet will arrive.

Zone visits are proving hugely popular with our clients, with many newly registered horses joining the scheme. The main stipulations of receiving a zone visit are that we have a current email address on your account, which will enable you to receive our quarterly equine newsletter, and that there is no outstanding balance on your account before receiving another visit.

All routine work can be requested on a zone day apart from lameness work-ups and sedation, due to time constraints. For full terms and conditions, please click on the link below.
