High quality veterinary care in a professional and caring environment

Covid-19 Update

We are still available for you and your pet 24 hours a day should you need us but due to lockdown our services are now very different.

The health and welfare of animals is at the heart of what we do and we will never abandon that. We ask that you help us to keep everyone as safe as possible during the pandemic.

Stay safe everyone


Horse and Equine Services

Lanes Farm Vets provide a comprehensive first opinion service for our horse clients. Commonly used services include:

Vaccinations: Flu and tetanus are the most common diseases protected against. Remember to ensure that your vaccinations are in date if entering competitions etc.

Horse identification: either by micro-chipping or completion of “silhouettes”. Micro-chipping is now obligatory for a new passport to be issued.

Horse gelding: these are done on the owner’s premises and usually done standing under sedation, although a full general anaesthetic can be given.

Treatments of wounds and injuries: again done at home.

Examination/treatment of sick horses

Treatment of sarcoids: using the Liverpool University sarcoid cream.

Medical treatment of colic cases: if we feel the case is likely to need surgical care we will discuss this with you and can arrange referral, usually to Liverpool University at Leahurst.

We are based close to a large commercial pathology laboratory who carry out most of our testing. In urgent cases, we can deliver samples on the same day.

We do not have our own equine hospital facilities. In the relatively rare cases of a horse needing extensive or specialised surgery we will arrange referral to a specialist hospital, usually Liverpool University.

Whilst we are willing to attend emergency foaling we do not provide specialist equine stud service.

As with all areas of the practice we provide all our own ‘on call’ services 24 hours a day.
