Services > Equine

Many of our veterinarians and support staff are actively involved in equestrian activity, be this hunting, dressage, breeding or just owning horses and hacking, horses are never too far from the topic of conversation around the practice.

We have vets at all clinics with a special interest in equine medicine, reproduction, nutrition and dentistry, among other areas. We have a wide range of equipment and skills, allowing us to service most equine veterinary requirements, including radiography, endoscopy, ultrasonography and dentistry. With the recent addition of the latest digital radiography technology, we are ideally placed to service clients in all parts of the equine industry. Out vets are committed to continuing education and regularly attend relevant courses and conferences both in New Zealand and abroad.

Vet Services Hawkes Bay are members of Equine Dental Vets.
