Equine Emergency Service

The Mount Veterinary Hospital provides a full emergency service 24 hours a day 365 days a year. We have experienced vets on call to cover all emergencies such as injuries, colic, tying up, foaling problems or laminitis. We can attend your horse at your yard, or where you are riding or competing. We often provide veterinary cover to local shows and equine events.

The service is backed up by our own in house laboratory so that blood tests, should they be required, can be completed as soon as possible.

In most cases, emergency treatment can be completed on site – we have a portable x-ray machine to use if necessary. However, with more severe wounds and cases of surgical colic we can carry out initial examination, stabilisation and pain relief before arranging referral to one of the local referral centres. We can arrange this for you and accompany you if necessary in case there are any problems in transit.

To call us in an out of hours emergency ring 01823 662286 and ensure that you give your name, contact phone number, location and nature of the emergency.
