Thompson House Equine Vets – News

We are pleased to welcome a new member to our team of vets….. Gen!!

Gen has been working with us now for a few weeks, and has been out and about on visits meeting some of our valued clients.

Gen has spent the past 5 years studying at the University of Surrey. With a keen interest in horses throughout university she focused her spare time gaining some great experience at different equine hospitals including Rainbow Equine Hospital and Hambleton Equine Hospital.

Outside of her veterinary career, she enjoys keeping fit, taking part in lots of team sports, spending time with family and friends over a cup of tea, and travelling the world.

We are really looking forward to celebrating with our wonderful team at The Equestrian Business Awards in November. We have recently been nominated for vet practice of the year 2023, along with three other amazing practices, so wish us luck.

Big thank you to our friends at Cheshire Racehorse Retraining for being our first yard to take on the new strangles vaccine.

We are really pleased to be able to offer this new vaccine as a great way to protect your horse against this devastating disease. As an introductory offer we can provide free visits for yards vaccinating 5 or more horses at the same time.

If you would like any more information please do not hesitate to contact us at the clinic and one of our vets would be more than happy to speak to you.

Very sad day last friday when we had to say goodbye to Ed.

Ed has decided to move to pastures new and become a small animal vet. He will be sorely missed by everyone at Thompson House and I am sure by all our lovely clients who he looked after.

I am sure you will join us in saying goodbye and good luck on your new adventure.

Duncan‘s New Hip!

During the summer of 2020 Duncan the miniature horse first presented to Thompson House Equine vets with a severe left hind limb lameness suspected to be the result of a dislocated left hip.

After our initial workup at Thompson House, he was referred to The University of Liverpool Philip Leverhulme Equine Hospital and a CT scan confirmed our worst fears.

January 2020

Thompson House recently celebrated it’s one year anniversary.
