About Cambridge Equine Hospital
Situated in the heart of the Waikato, Cambridge Equine Hospital is one of the largest equine practices in the country, with eleven veterinarians solely dedicated to equine work. We have been servicing clients in the Cambridge area for over 30 years, and cater for all types of horses, from ponies through to elite performance and breeding horses.
The Cambridge Equine Hospital was opened in 2007, although our history goes back much further than that. Originally working under the umbrella of Cambridge Veterinary Services, Jonathan, Paul, and Murray joined the practice in the 1970's. They quickly established themselves in the equine side of the practice, which was rapidly expanding at the time. Since that time the practice has continued to grow, and we are proud to still be providing the veterinary care to many of our original clients today.
The opening of the hospital marked a significant milestone for the practice in 2007. Situated adjacent to the Cambridge Jockey Club training track, the 1000 square metre facility is second to none in New Zealand. The hospital is extremely well resourced with digital radiography, ultrasonography, video endoscopy (including overland endoscope), sho...ck wave therapy, and nuclear scintigraphy all at our disposal. The fully equipped, modern surgical theatre allows us to undertake all types of surgery (including arthroscopic, laparoscopic, and laser), while the spacious stalls are able to accommodate both day patients and those requiring longer term care.
On top of this fantastic facility, we have a talented and experienced veterinary team who are able to deal with all types of equine veterinary problems. With most of our vets having international experience, they bring a wealth of knowledge to help solve even the most difficult cases. Backed up by a great team of support staff, Cambridge Equine Hospital is your first choice in equine veterinary care.
