New Practice Management System

Well it seems that technology is trying to get the better of us this week. We are still experiencing a couple of teething problems with our new practice management system, we are working as hard as we can to get these fixed so please bear with us, especially our team of fabulous Receptionists.

Rest assured these computer issues do not in any way affect the treatment and care of all the animals at Chine House who remain our priority.
Thank you for your understanding

Equinosis- Introducing our latest diagnostic tool for equine lameness

Chine House Veterinary Hospital is excited to introduce our latest tool for lameness investigation at the clinic, the Equinosis Q inertial sensor lameness system (lameness locator).

The Equinosis Q system offers precise and objective identification of gait asymmetry using microelectric sensors positioned on the poll, pelvis and pastern of the horse. The system is particularly useful in the investigation of subtle or multi-limb lameness as well as to gauge the effectiveness oftreatment. It is also helpful when monitoring rehabilitation programmes.

The system is used in combination with standard lameness investigation techniques and can be used on all surfaces.

If you are interested in using the Equinosis Q as part of a lameness investigation on your horse, please do not hesitate to contact the Equine Department on 01509812445.

Chine House Equine Vet gives talk to GCSE students

Recently Chloe, one of our equine vets, presented to 150 female GCSE students as part of a STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) event. The event was designed to encourage young women to continue education in the sciences. Chloe discussed the pathway to studying veterinary medicine at university as well as the wide variety of jobs available to someone with a veterinary degree. We hope she has inspired a few more young women into the profession. image1 image2
