Wendover Heights Equine covers an approximate radius of twenty five miles in all directions from the practice which includes Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Oxfordshire. We pride ourselves on being your ‘local’ vet and being able to get to you quickly when it really matters.
The equine team offer all routine and non-routine clinical procedures and encourage gold standard preventative healthcare.
It is important that we can evaluate and assess your horse in a suitable and safe environment and if your facilities allow we will happily come to your yard. We have the latest diagnostic equipment including fully mobile digital radiography and ultrasonography and we will also bring one of our experienced equine nurses or our clinical groom along to assist with procedures such as Lameness, poor performance and medical investigations.
When your facilities allow we also offer Gastroscopy, Endoscopy, Shockwave Therapy and other procedures such as minor surgeries and castrations at your yard.
We also offer two and five stage vetting for purchase examinations for which we are prepared to travel all of the UK and Europe for our clients. We are a British Equine Veterinary Association Accredited Artificial Insemination practice and have experienced stud vets in the team.
One of our vet equine vets is always on duty to provide twenty four hour emergency care seven days a week. We also operate a Free Visit Zone service for our clients and run client events and clinics throughout the year.
The Equine Clinic
Here at Wendover Heights Equine we have a fully equipped clinic which incorporates a treatment room with stocks, a knock down box and theatre, five stables and two turnout paddocks for in-patients and day cases. Our experienced team of vets and nurses will make sure your horse’s are well looked after and their stay is comfortable. Our stables are also equipped with CCTV so we can keep a close eye on your horse if he is staying with us overnight.
We have facilities for lameness and neurological examinations including a concreted trot up area, slope and hard lunge area. Our examination room has a rubber floor (preventing slipping), heat lamps and stocks. Stocks allow our vets to examine your horse safely and can also be used for standing surgical procedures and stud work.
We have a fully padded knock-down box and surgical theatre available for elective surgical procedures requiring a general anaesthetic. Most routine surgical procedures can be carried out by our own vets but we always prioritise the best care for your horse – so for more complex cases we will defer to the expertise of specialist equine surgeons. We have excellent relationships with nearby referral hospitals, and their surgeons are happy to visit our premises to perform elective surgeries as and when required. Emergency surgical cases are referred to specialist hospitals in order to provide the highest quality care, expertise and round the clock monitoring.
