Portable Equipment

Lingfield Equine Vets have invested in an extensive range of portable equipment to enable us to undertake diagnostic work which may, more traditionally have required hospitalisation to achieve. Some of the equipment is suitable for use at your yard which means that investigating a problem or checking on the progress of an injury can be done more conveniently without the need to travel.
For some procedures like gastroscopes we require your horse to travel to our clinic.
