A stowaway diagonal crush can be disassembled to enable the horse to walk in and exit without turning.

The crush is heavily padded and designed to relieve pressure on the trachea of a sedated horse.

The features of the horse ambulance are world-class, and one more way in New Zealand where we put #TheHorseFirst. 🐴πŸ₯‡

🐴We have been receiving a lot of questions around coughs and runny noses recently and wanted to provide the following advice for our clients.
🐴We recommend that horse owners continue to follow biosecurity good practice around their horses competing, ensuring that they are appropriately vaccinated and do not compete should they show any symptoms of respiratory disease, such as a purulent nasal discharge or fever.
🐴We recommend horse owners check their horse's temperature anytime they appear unwell or show clinical signs of respiratory disease (such as a cough or snotty nose). A temperature over 38.5C is considered elevated and your vet should be consulted.
🐴There are currently no confirmed strangles cases within the Auckland area that we are aware of. There are a lot of respiratory virus’s present at the moment. Please consult your vet if you are worried about your horse.

COVID-19 LEVEL 3 UPDATE

As always, the team at Veterinary Associates will continue to provide 24/7 emergency veterinary care, including hospital care. We are following the government and New Zealand Veterinary Association (NZVA) recommendations in regards to COVID-19. Every effort is and will continue to be made to reduce contact with owners and fellow staff. Please bear with us as we will ask additional questions before visiting your horse. We will continue to assign priority via phone consultations and schedule call outs as required during level 3. If you are unsure whether your horse needs to be seen, please call us to discuss. The front reception will remain closed. Please contact us if you need anything from front reception or refills on medications, and this can be arranged in a contactless way. We are keeping close records of those we are in contact with during this time as per NZVA recommendations. Please stay safe and look after yourselves and our wonderful equestrian community. We look forward to seeing all of you at the races, shows, and events once this has passed!
For additional information on guidelines during this time please refer to Β https://www.nzva.org.nz/page/covid/ and https://covid19.govt.nz/

We are well and truly into the foaling season, but for those of you still waiting for new arrivals, we are working through level 4 to help ensure your foals safe delivery. Β If you have any questions or need advice, please give us a call or visit our reproduction page for more information.

To be successful in any sporting arena, your horses need to be in optimal condition for not just competition day, but the entire season. Β Ensuring your horse maintains peak performance and does not develop lameness or poor results is easier said than done. Β We offer individual performance and treatment plans to ensure your horses are ready and prepared for competitions and the entire competitive season. If you have any questions about your horses condition, please give us a call.
