The Equine Clinic boasts well-ventilated indoor stables plus spacious work areas. Rigorous hygiene control is practiced by utilising a strict multi-step cleaning programme, including the use of disinfectant footbaths placed at strategic points. Isolation stables are utilised to help prevent the spread of contagious bacterial or viral diseases, and all horses undergo a nasal swab for MRSA and a faecal swab for Salmonella upon their arrival. Full barrier nursing applies to all ICU patients as well as mares with foals.
Procedures such as endoscopy, ECG, laser, ultrasonography, digital radiography and nuclear imaging are performed to aid in patient diagnosis, and colic patients are medically and surgically managed. A high-speed treadmill, situated on campus at the Equine Research Unit, is available to assist in lameness assessment.
