The Equine Clinic is custom-designed and boasts 45 well-ventilated, light and roomy indoor stables plus spacious work areas. Special accommodation is provided for intensive care patients, mares with foals, and horses suffering from neurological problems.
Veterinarians in the Equine Clinic have high-tech equipment and two state-of-the-art theatres at their disposal, and procedures such as endoscopy, ECG, laser, ultrasonography, digital radiography and nuclear imaging are regularly performed to aid in patient diagnosis. A high-speed treadmill, situated on campus at the Equine Research Unit, is available if required, to assist in the assessment of lameness.
Bringing an equine patient to us ……
1. We accept horse patients by appointment only, either on a first opinion basis, or by written/telephonic referral from a veterinarian. Call us on +27 12 529 8124 / 8284
2. If you are being referred to us, please ask your veterinarian to fax the referral letter to us before you phone to make an appointment. Our fax no is + 27 12 529 8528.
3. If you plan to send your horse to us with someone else (ie transporters, stable manager), then please have your fax number ready, when you call us for an appointment, as we will need to fax you, as the horse’s owner, a registration form plus indemnity form which must be completed and faxed back to us, together with a copy of your ID document.
