Newcastle Equine Centre has a fully equipped hospital for treating and monitoring medical and post-surgical cases. Our senior veterinarians have all undergone an equine internship along with additional training in diagnostic imaging. Our in-house laboratory allows us to analyse bloodwork and other pathology samples with immediate results enabling more precise treatment and monitoring of intensive care cases. As well as providing around the clock intensive care when needed, cameras are situated over every stall both inside and in our yards to allow 24-hour monitoring of all cases.
In 2018, the hospital will be expanded to include dedicated isolation stalls for housing possible infectious disease cases. In addition, to service our growing medical caseload, we are excited to announce that Dr Lisanne Gallant will be starting work at NEC in late 2018 as our Board-certified Equine Medicine Specialist.
