Please be aware that as of the 1st of September 2022 Parkhill Vets Ltd will no longer be carrying out any equine veterinary work, whether it be routine or emergency work.
With many decades of providing equine veterinary services this has not been an easy decision to make. The relationship that we have built up with clients and patients and the regular contact involved in these will be missed by us all. As the small animal side of the business has grown ever larger and the range of services and procedures we offer for our small animal clients has expanded, it has become impossible to recruit vets prepared to carry out both equine and small animal work.
In order to balance out the manpower need of the two sides of the business and with the small animal side accounting for more than 90% of the workload, we have made the necessary decision to focus our efforts and attention solely on the small animal side.
We would like to thank you, our many loyal equine clients, for your continued custom over these years and would urge you to register with another practice in advance of expecting to need their services. We will of course continue to deal with any outstanding insurance claims, queries and so on. All case histories will be retained and can be emailed at your request to a practice of your choosing.
We wish you all continued enjoyment with your equine pursuits and once again please accept our thanks for being such a great bunch of clients.
John Baird MRCVS.
Laparoscopic "Keyhole" Surgery (March 2018)
In line with our commitment to improving patient care and the services we provide at Parkhill Vets Ltd, we are proud to announce the arrival of our new state of the art laparoscopy unit.
The significant investment we have made in this equipment will enable us to perform minimally invasive neutering (spay) operations using laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery. This technique is performed through two small incisions in the abdominal wall approximately 5mm long and compared to the more conventional, full surgical "open abdomen" approach, the recovery is quicker with less pain and discomfort. External sutures are often not required. In addition to neutering we are also now able to perform minimally invasive exploratory investigations of the abdomen and take organ biopsies where indicated.
Please follow this link to our services page where you can read more about this exciting new technique.
Located in state of the art premises at Parkhill on Walton Road, Wetherby. Our friendly team of trained, dedicated staff provide excellent veterinary care and advice.
We are proud to be an RCVS Accredited Practice under the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Practice Standards Scheme.
