We create well-being and save lives


At Equine Planet we provide high quality and innovative veterinary services and compassionate care. We are deeply committed to create well-being and improve the life of horses of all ages. We endeavour to apply the best combination of both conventional and complementary therapies and encourage medicine and treatment methods that are gentle, minimally invasive, and ultimately create the most well-being and least stress in the animal. We do not push sales of any pharmaceutical products, and are solely focused on achieving the best results. We work ethically and with integrity in all that we do. We will always work collaboratively with the owners and our solutions aim to be economically and technically reliable. We also like working with and incorporating the experience of a diverse range of clients, people with different backgrounds and cultures and therefore different ways of thinking, being and living.
