The hospital has stabling for up to 50 inpatients. There is a mixture of types of accommodation with some stabling in a large, well-ventilated American barn and some in loose boxes. There is also stabling for up to 10 horses and 2 foals in our intensive care facility for critically ill patients and additional isolation stables for horses with infectious, or suspected infectious diseases. Our Reproduction Unit provides large boxes for mares with foals at foot which are quiet and separated from the rest of the hospital therefore reducing the risk of infection to young foals. Most stables have rubber matting and are bedded with shavings or paper, however other types of bedding are available if needed. In addition there are turnout facilites in post and rail paddocks or in a high-fenced playpen which means that inpatients may be turned out if beneficial for their care. Inpatients are looked after by our large team of yard nurses who work in shifts to ensure that we can provide genuine 24 nursing care for our inpatients.
