Our ambulatory practitioners provide a wide range of services at our clients’ premises, including vaccinations, pre-purchase examinations, advice on management (for example, for laminitic horses and ponies), routine dentistry, lameness examinations and treatment, medical conditions, and emergency treatments (for wounds, colic and other injuries).
We have a full range of portable diagnostic equipment, including digital endoscopy, radiography and ultrasonography. This allows our veterinary surgeons to diagnose and treat successfully a wide variety of conditions at stable yards, without requiring your horse to be transported to our Hospital base at Exning, near Newmarket.
However, more complex diagnostic, medical and surgical cases can be referred quickly to our Equine Hospital and Diagnostic Centre, where our clients and their horses have direct access to specialist expertise, care, equipment and facilities, as do the many leisure horses that are referred by veterinary surgeons from other practices throughout the UK. Our ambulatory practice and referred leisure horses have access to our specialist equine clinical pathology laboratory at Newmarket (Beaufort Cottage Laboratories), where many blood, swab, faecal and other samples are tested to help make accurate diagnoses, leading to and monitoring the success of appropriate treatments.
Our Shared Visit Scheme offers new and existing clients of our ambulatory practice a 50% reduction on our normal visit charges. Mark Grant is the primary veterinary surgeon responsible for carrying out appointments generated through the scheme, which complements our existing services. The area covered by our ambulatory practice has been separated into 3 regions and on one day per week a Rossdales veterinary surgeon will be in that region. The regions are:
The scheme is designed to encompass all routine examinations (e.g. vaccinations, teeth, bandage changes, x-rays, health checks etc) but is not available for emergency call-outs, pre-purchase examinations, or more complex or prolonged investigations.
