Equine Facilities

As a progressive practice E.C. Straiton & Partners are proud to offer comprehensive facilities for our equine patients that are constantly under review and evolving as veterinary science developments.

Our latest investments include -

A dedicated equine examination area with 'stocks' to make procedures like endoscopy and ultrasound examinations safer and easier for both patients and staff.

Two new large stables and a padded 'knock down' box where surgical procedures are carried out, overlooked by a windowed gallery enabling patients to be monitored day and night without disturbance.

A concrete 'trot up' area & lunging ring for investigating lameness or gait problems completes the equine facility.

A digital radiography system, adding to existing digital ultrasound equipment, to produce quality x-rays that can be viewed and stored digitally on our imaging machines.

Flexible digital endoscope to allow examination of the upper respiratory tract and gutteral pouches and to take samples for analysis.

Paddock to allow free exercise.
