Emergency Care

Improving point of care services for our clients

Every owner's worst nightmare is the emergency phone call that you receive. Historically, veterinary services and care have been limited by the necessity for power required to operate equipment needed for either diagnostic services or treatment. 

Cliffe Equine believes in ensuring our equine veterinary team have the most advanced equipment available to provide the best service we can to our patients on site, particularly in times of emergency, when moving a horse or pony is at best undesirable, and at worst causes further pain and injury. 

We are delighted to be able to offer all our clients the benefits of a completely wireless x-ray system. This is hugely advantageous horse's certainly injury themselves away from power sockets! We will be able to bring the battery operated, extremely compact x-ray equipment to you, and even better see the images there and then - the benefits of this technology mean rapid diagnosis, followed by instant and appropriate treatment.
