Equine Zone Days

Find out when an equine vet will visit your area

We have combined the four zone areas (originally North West, North East, South East, South West) on four days to now two zone areas (North of A303 and South of A303).
This consolidation means that all areas will be covered as follows:

North of the A303 will be covered on Monday

South of the A303 will be covered on Wednesday

By assigning an equine vet to designated areas Monday and Wednesday, we offer a discounted visit fee for routine procedures providing reduced cost and easier access for you to regular routine preventative veterinary care throughout the practice area. 

Areas covered by the Equine Zone Days

The visit can be booked weeks in advance, the latest time to book is 2pm the day before your allotted Zone Day (Friday for Monday and Tuesday for Wednesday). An appointment time will be allocated by our equine administrators who will phone you after 2pm the day before your visit, to confirm the allocated time. (Clients with Monday as their Zone Day will be phoned on the Friday afternoon before.)

There must be no money outstanding and payment must be made at the time of the visit. To allow us to arrange an efficient Zone Day Visit list, specific time requests or preference of vet are unable to be complied with.
