Our comprehensive care extends to horses from all walks of life and our equine practice features ample indoor stables, large outside yards and modern treatment facility equipped with state-of-the-art surgical equipment, allowing us to provide the best care for your horse.
The sedated horse is anaesthetised in our padded induction room before being transported by an overhead gantry system to our fully-equipped surgical suite. Patients are then returned post surgery to the padded induction room for recovery.
A full range of medical procedures are performed at LEC with the ability where necessary, for horses to be hospitalised, either boxed or in day yards.
