Equine Medicine 

Lis Watson is an RCVS Recognised Advanced Practitioner in Equine Medicine and we are equipped to see a full range of equine medical cases including the more unusual.

 

In support of our RCVS Recognised Advanced Practitioners we have excellent facilities at our Upleatham Equine Unit, allowing us to investigate medical cases to a high level. From 24hour ECG, to our in-house lab, to gastroscopy and detailed ultrasound examination of the equine abdomen, we can get you the answers and treatment your horse needs.
