Delivering excellence in veterinary care throughout Cumbria
Equine > Introduction
The equine side of the practice is constantly expanding and evolving. We cover all aspects of equine work from the elite performance horse to miniature shetlands. When the practice moved to our current premises in the year 2000 it was essential that we invested in full hospitalisation and surgical facilities to enhance the level of care we can offer. The location of the practice, very close to major roads, means that your horse’s journey to us is as stress-free as possible.

While we have up-to-date premises, it would be of limited use if we failed to maintain similar standards in our clinical practice. All our veterinary surgeons undertake regular Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses. Neil Frame and Sam Galloway are both holders of the RCVS (Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons) Certificate in Equine Practice and Neil was one of the national examiners in this qualification. Neil has lectured at CPD courses for other vets, passing on his huge depth of experience. Nurse Julie Ullyart passed her exams in 2010 and is now an RCVS Registered Equine Veterinary Nurse. In 2008 the practice became an RCVS Accredited Tier 2 Equine Practice. This was granted to the practice again after re-inspection in 2011.

We maintain close links with local farriers and other equine professionals. The practice works at many local equestrian centres. We also provide veterinary cover for endurance riding competitions during the spring and summer.
