Referral service

We provide a referral service that gives vets advice and treatment options for equine skin conditions.

We support equine veterinarians by providing them with treatment and managment advice for skin disease and cancers cases.

This advice aims to improve the overall welfare of horses suffering from skin disease or cancer.


We are always grateful for your advice and support and would never dream of using any other service
