Change in services...
We will no longer be providing any emergency or first opinion type of work.
Please read Lee's statement here.
2nd July 2021 and onwards ...
Dentistry - Emilia Pritchard equine dentistry will now be called 'Pritchard Equine Dentistry' and Lee will work alongside Emilia and Thea offering routine dentistry, advanced dentistry techniques including fillings and tooth removals and much more.
We will also be available for second opinions for any ongoing conditions, a second opinion will have to have been seen by another vet practice initially and all clinical vet history will need to be received from current vets and sent back after the appointment.
We will also be offering pre purchase examinations ( 2 and 5 stage vettings) across East Cornwall and West Devon.
We will be continuing with Artificial insemination using fresh semen. We hope to introduce frozen A/I to our services in the near future too.
So what type of work will we do moving forward?
