Equipment and services we can offer as a referral or second opinion...

LASER

 

The practice has a surgical and therapeutic laser.

The laser beam can be used for cutting tissue like a scalpel. High temperatures of up to 300 °C cause the cells to pop open and evaporate. This process is called vaporisation leading to cutting and coagulation with minimal bleeding.

GASTROSCOPY

We have a 3 metre gastroscope allowing the scoping of the upper gastrointestinal tract

ENDOSCOPY

 

The practice runs a 1.7m Olympus endoscope allowing visualisation of all aspects of the respiratory tree at rest.

STANDING SURGERY

 

The practice offers a standing surgical service including advanced dental procedures, sinus surgery, mass removals, back surgery and standing musculo-skeletal surgery.

RADIOGRAPHY

The practice has a completely mobile digital x-ray unit allowing instant x-rays to be taken horse-side.

ULTRASONOGRAPHY

 

The practice runs three ultrasound scanners enabling reproduction/fertility scanning as well as musculo-skeletal and abdominal imaging.

SHOCKWAVE THERAPY

 

Shockwave is used for the treatment of musculo-skeletal soft tissue pain and associated disorders in horses.
