Physiotherapy is often necessary to aid healing of soft tissue injuries, rehabilitate lameness cases, and treat primary or secondary back, neck and muscle pain.
We can hospitalise your horse if necessary to enable intensive treatments with Equine physiotherapist Kathrine Petts BSc (Hons) MCSP SRP, who is registered with the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Animal Therapy (ACPAT). Treatments can also be carried out at your yard if appropriate.
Saddle Fitting is vital to make sure that your saddle doesn’t hurt your horse’s back or obstruct normal movement – in some lame horses it is the saddle causing the initial problem. Sally Cartwright can undertake saddle fitting clinics at the practice using the indoor school, or visit at your yard.
Equine Dental Technicians (EDTs) sometimes need horses sedating to enable them to perform dental work safely and effectively. We are happy to sedate horses for EDTs registered with the British Association of Equine Dental Technicians (BAEDT) at a mutually convenient time. The registered EDTs have passed rigorous exams in the UK and are fully qualified to perform dental work. To check if your EDT is registered please click on http://www.baedt.com. All of our equine vets carry out equine dentistry to a high standard, with some having special interest and experience in this subject.
We will also work closely with Instructors and Nutritionists as necessary to ensure that we are providing the best possible care for your horse.
