Together with our veterinary nursing team and interns we offer 24 hour veterinary care and monitoring of critically ill and post operative adult patients. We have access to excellent diagnostic equipment- videoendoscopy, ultrasound, ECG (exercising and 24h holter), radiography, nuclear scintigraphy and in house laboratory. We work closely with other colleaugues from the University of Nottingham School of Veterinary Medicine and Science (including pathology, critical care, anaesthesia and cardiology specialists). The internal medicine team also consult closely with the surgical and reproduction teams to provide the best therapeutic plans and care for our patients.
The hospital also has 2 dedicated isolation stables for patients under investigation and treatment for contagious equine disease. We prefer that colleagues wishing to refer a horse with suspected infectious disease speak to a member of our staff to fully discuss the case prior to referral as we need to ensure the safety of our hospitalised patients at all times.
We are also extremely happy to offer telephone advice to our referring vets on all aspects of internal medicine, and are happy to discuss cases both when continuing treatment with the primary care clinician, or prior to referral.
