Southwest Equine Veterinary Group starts in Warrnambool

15 August 2017

The Ballarat Veterinary Practice has joined forces with Warrnambool Veterinary (Apiam Animal Health) to develop an equine specific veterinary service in the Warrnambool and surrounding districts. This business is called Southwest Equine Veterinary Group (SWE). The team was very excited to pose for a picture on the first day. (L-R) Nicole Anderson (Practice Manager), Dr Michael Wraight, Dr Kelly Gowland, Dr Andrew Cust and Hayley Croft (Veterinary Nurse).
The clinic focuses on everything equine including general horse health, vaccinations, dentistry, poor performance and lameness. The purpose build cars are fully equipped with a mobile digital Xray machine, ultrasound and video endoscopy that allows us to show the clients everything in real time and record the images/videos for future reference. The cars are also set up with everything an ambulatory vet could need including examination equipment, dental equipment, foaling support gear and general reproduction equipment. The ambulatory vets from SWE will be supported 24/7 by the team at the BVP equine hospital.
