Equine Veterinary Services

Ayrshire and South West Scotland


Our equine clinic based in Kilmarnock has a team of dedicated, exclusively equine vets. We provide first opinion and emergency services for horses, ponies and donkeys in Ayrshire, Greater Glasgow and Renfrewshire.

For cases requiring further investigation or treatment we have in-patient stabling, with competent caring nurses and yard staff.

We accept referrals from other veterinary surgeons.
