The clinician in charge of your horse will keep you informed about the progress of your horse throughout the investigation and treatment. When your horse is admitted, you will be advised which are the best times to contact the clinician and you will be given a business card that has all the contact numbers you require. If you have a general enquiry about the health, happiness and behaviour of your horse, you will be able to speak to a member of our yard or nursing staff. Owners are also welcome to visit their horse, and these visits should be arranged through the Equine Centre secretaries.
At the end of your horse’s visit, the clinician will prepare a final report describing the results of the examination, diagnostic findings, and treatment for your horse. In some instances an interim report is prepared, if a procedure such as surgery or magnetic resonance imaging is recommended, and these reports can be forwarded to your insurers if necessary. The final report is a technical report, in that it is not written in layman's terms. However the clinician will have discussed all their findings with you previously, and explained their diagnosis and prognosis and possible treatment options as applicable. Both you and your referring vet will receive a copy of the clinician's report. Your vet will also receive copy of bone scan or magnetic resonance images as applicable.
We are always interested in the progress of your horse following discharge from the clinic, so we welcome feedback.
