Our clinic is equipped with a dedicated intensive care barn which is overseen by our veterinarians and qualified nurses who provide 24 hour care for critically ill foals and adult horses.
We have regular contact with veterinary specialists throughout Australia and ensure continued professional development with attendance at major conferences to keep up to date with the latest developments in veterinary practice.
Our clinic’s diagnostic facilities include ultrasonography, radiology and endoscopy as well as an in house laboratory allowing us to have blood work results in as little as 15 minutes which is vital in the investigation of critical patients and complicated cases.
Some of the common disorders investigated and treated at the clinic include:

When foals are premature or sick, they usually require around the clock care. Our intensive care barn equipped with qualified around the clock staff who can facilitate this. The clinic is equipped to provide intravenous fluids, oxygen support and assisted feeding as required.
The intensive care barn has purpose built foal boxes which allows mares and foals to be housed in the same stable with the foal safely confined while receiving intensive treatment. These foals are maintained on straw or mattresses with padded stable walls depending on the foal’s needs. The mare is able to see and touch her foal at all times while it is undergoing treatment, making the process less stressful for the mare.
