Online Referral Service
We provide a referral service that gives vets advice and treatment options for equine skin conditions
We believe in providing your equine friend with high quality treatment options and advice. As a specialist in Equine Oncology, having dedicated his life to this area, Professor Derek Knottenbelt and his team strive to provide you with high quality advice and treatment options.
Equine Medical Solutions Ltd. was founded in 2016, taking over the sarcoid referral service previously run through Leahurst at Liverpool Vet School. The aim was to continue to provide support and advice to veterinarians on equine cancer cases, in particular sarcoids. We provide and supply a variety of treatment options on a case-by-case basis, and will always recommend what we feel is the most appropriate treatment.
Our mission is to improve the understanding and treatment of equine cancer conditions.
With friendly and helpful staff, you can rest assured that you will receive the best possible service and support before, during and after your horse has undergone treatment.
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!

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
