We were delighted to receive a visit from HRH The Prince of Wales.
Prince Charles visited our new Equine Centre, and had an opportunity to see how horses are anaesthetised (using a full size plastic model), scan a horse’s tendon, see an electronic lameness locator in operation and learn about equine dentistry.
Staff were excited and honoured to welcome His Royal Highness – who seemed to be really interested in equine care and to thoroughly enjoy his visit.

Thank you for all of your entries to the dental competition to win Â£250 of advanced dental care. We loved reading all the stories about your horses dental experiences. We are pleased to announce the winner is Liesa Walker and her horse Louis, who is pictured below.
Liesa’s entry was as follows……
“X-rays revealed an abnormal swelling on 3 year old Louis’s face which failed to respond to antibiotics, it was an infection that had attacked the root of an upper molar. Sam expertly extracted Louis’s molar, gave him post operative care and now visits every 6 months to file the opposing tooth.”
We also gave two runner up prizes, of a free worm egg count, to Corrina Lilley with Syd and Bill North with Belle.
Our hard working equine team enjoyed a night out at Wolverhampton racecourse for our Christmas Party recently.
Bets were placed, with some winnings! Everyone had a good time with plenty of food, drink and dancing.
Jonathan was the vet on duty at the races on the evening, and luckily had no horses needing attention.
We recently had a very successful client evening, with Richard and Gil doing fantastic talks, and plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits served afterwards!
For anyone that couldn’t make the evening we have put a link below to Richard’s talks on our exciting new equine hospital and also his informative talk on wounds.
