Welcome to Stable Close Equine Practice. This page is intended to provide new and existing clients with useful information about the nature and scope of our services.
We are a six-vet 100% equine practice, based in Winchester but covering the majority of Hampshire. We cover all types of horses from international competition horses and race horses to children's ponies and pleasure horses. We pride ourselves in offering a very high standard of veterinary care at your yard with dedicated equine vets and state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment. We do not provide inpatient facilities, preferring to treat horses in their own familiar surroundings. Where necessary we have a large network of specialist vets to whom we can refer cases which may require advanced hospital based diagnostics or surgical intervention.
Our office is open 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday and we can be contacted on 01962 779111. In case of out-of-hours emergencies, you should call the same number and a recorded message will give you the contact details for the duty veterinary surgeon.
Our Terms and Conditions of Business can be found here. This covers matters such as how our fees are calculated, payment terms, ownership of records and complaints procedures.
