Horses

We can come to you, or arrange for your horse to visit our surgery, according to your preference.

Facilities on site include:

  • a stocks and stabling area
  • digital x-ray
  • ultrasound scanners
  • endoscopy
  • equine dentistry tools.

We are well equipped to investigate equine diseases, lameness, respiratory conditions, dental disease, skin complaints and reproductive issues. We perform routine castrations and rig castrations, hernia surgery and routine pregnancy scanning.

Annual influenza vaccination is advisable for horses that compete or mix with other horses and two-yearly tetanus vaccinations is necessary for all horses.

Faecal egg-count testing is available with same-day turnaround in our laboratory, and this is an invaluable tool in helping you decide when to worm your horse. Our veterinary staff are happy to discuss the complex area of parasite control; do phone for a chat.

Equine Health Plans

At Ystwyth Veterinary Practice, we believe that a proactive, preventive approach to your horse's healthcare is far better than waiting until your horse is vulnerable, ill or suffereing to put things right. That's why we have designed these Equine Health Plans which are not insurance but have been designed to work well alongside your current equine insurance.

They are tailored with you and your horse in mind as it allow you to pay a predictable, set amount each month to take the financial uncertainty out of the routine care of your horse.  Joining these Equine Health plans can save you £81 per year for a horse and £99 per year for a pony.
