Emergencies

Espinar Equine provides 24/7 emergency veterinary cover with the assistance of affiliated vets. This means you can speak to me, or an on-call equine vet, about your horse at any time of day or night.

For any emergencies out of office hours, call our contact number and you will be transferred to the on-call vet. If you have an emergency during the day and I cannot attend (e.g. if I am dealing with another emergency or am too far away to attend within a reasonable period of time), then we will transfer you to another trusted equine vet surgeon who will be able to attend to provide first aid and pain relief as appropriate.

If you are unsure whether your horse’s issue constitutes an emergency situation, you can either check my “When to call the Vet” page here, or ring to discuss. It is always best to get your horse looked at by a vet if you are unsure, so please don’t worry if you think you are panicking. Simply give me a ring and someone can help either by attending your horse or just by providing advice or reassurance at the end of a phone.
