At Rossdales Hertfordshire, our experienced team of vets are focused on providing professional, high quality veterinary service to all types of horses, ponies and donkeys all year round. From routine appointments to emergency call-outs, our services are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, at your yard or premises.
From preventative healthcare and advice to in-depth lameness and medical investigations, our team are here to help and advise you, putting equine patient care at the heart of everything we do.
Our vets are available for routine appointments, encompassing a wide range of services including vaccinations, teeth rasping and wolf tooth removal, general health checks, examinations, yard health and management consultations, microchipping and passport applications.
Our cost-effective Zone Visit days and Annual Health Checks can save you time and money and, importantly, provide preventative healthcare to help with the early identification of signs of clinical disease, particularly in older equine patients.
* Please note that there will be no call out fee if a vet is visiting your yard or premises to attend 3 or more horses. This applies to visits booked on any day of the week.
Diagnostic Examinations and Treatments
Our vets have access to a full range of high quality portable equipment, including digital radiography, ultrasonography, endoscopy and shockwave therapy.
This allows our veterinary surgeons to diagnose and treat a wide variety of lameness and medical conditions at your yard. Should you prefer to bring your horse or pony to our hospital for imaging, your vet can easily make appropriate arrangements on your behalf.
More complex diagnostic, medical and surgical cases can be referred quickly to our equine hospital, where our clients and their horses have direct access to specialist expertise, the most advanced veterinary imaging techniques (including MRI, CT and Scintigraphy) and state-of-the-art facilities.
Our vets carry out Five stage and Two Stage Pre-purchase Examinations (‘vettings’) within our catchment area and further afield, as requested.
Lameness and Poor Performance Examinations
Lameness and poor performance investigations involve visual assessment, palpation, nerve blocking, digital radiography and ultrasonography at your yard.
For more complex cases, referral to our Diagnostic Centre in Newmarket can be arranged, where our expert clinicians have access to the most advanced diagnostic imaging techniques, including MRI, CT and scintigraphy.
We can carry out examinations for a multitude of medical conditions including weight loss, skin issues, eye problems, neurological conditions and poor performance.
Our laboratory processes blood tests, swabs and tissue samples taken at your yard. We are fortunate to have access to internal medicine specialists at Rossdales Newmarket, who are able to provide expert advice, or for cases that need to be referred to our hospital for further investigation, specialist treatment and care.
Stud Farm Medicine
We can carry out pre-breeding examinations and pregnancy diagnosis and assist with foalings as well, as carrying out regular routine visits to stud farms and individual breeders during the breeding season.
We are also happy to provide advice on management of the broodmare and youngstock and carry out infertility investigations and artificial insemination.
