Facebook review

I am so thankful to Derek Knottenbelt and Equine Medical Solutions. They are the reason my horse Lagsi is still alive.
I just couldn’t believe someone who doesn’t know me at all wrote such an amazing e-mail. He told me it would be hard but that we would stay positive and do our very best to safe my horse.
2 sarcoides already fell of and the skin is healing. I believe he will recover completely and we will have many beautiful years together. All thanks to Derek and his team. They are the best!

Owner Review

  If it wasn’t for Derek Knottenbelt and Equine Medical Solutions Ltd, I would not have my mare. I found them when I was out of options and our situation was beyond dire. My mare was not ready to give up, neither was I and though it was a huge undertaking Dr. Knottenbelt did not hesitate. Malignant sarcoids had all but taken over my poor horse and they were able to help me snatch her back. She is now 100% recovered and back to competition. – Jade Warren
