Equine Specialists

Like specialists in human medicine, veterinary specialists have extensive experience and expertise in a relatively narrow aspect of veterinary medicine, providing services that might be beyond what is possible in general practice. .

Equine Behaviour

Despite thousands of years of human domestication, modern horses are still scared little critters trying to avoid being eaten by apex predators. Keeping this in mind may help you interpret their behaviour better, and keep you and your horse safe.

The Evolution of the Horse

The modern horse comes in many shapes, sizes and styles. However, it may surprise some people to know that modern horses (Equus Caballus) encompass all breeds - from Miniature horses through to large breeds like the Suffolk Punch, Clydesdale and Percheron. Therefore, they all share the same grass-based diet, and the same dental structure. Dr Shannon Lee digs into the details.

Dr Shannon Lee talks with Dr Jennifer Stewart about Body Condition Scoring and how you can use this important tool to keep your horse in top condition.

The Horse's Immune System

Vaccination plays an important part in keeping your horse's immune system primed and ready to deal with any diseases and infections it may get.
