The Liphook Equine Hospital is a Tier 3 RCVS Approved Equine Hospital. It was one of the first in the country to achieve the exacting standards of this top level recognition by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.

The Liphook Equine Hospital is led by a team of internationally recognised surgical and medicine equine specialists with extensive experience and expertise. Each of our specialists has particular areas of interest. Our specialist veterinary surgeons have national and international reputations and have written scientific papers and published in text books and scientific journals. They are all invited to speak regularly at national and international meetings and teach on continuing education courses for other members of our profession. Our team of specialists are assisted by housevets and residents. Each of our vets is dedicated to providing your animal with the very best treatment and care.

Horses, ponies and donkeys come from all over the UK and further afield to be treated by our referral specialist teams. We continually strive to enhance and improve the service we offer to owners, their animals and the veterinary surgeons who entrust their patients to our care.

Our nursing team is the largest equine nursing team in the UK. Many of our nurses have specialist equine nursing qualifications. We could cut costs by employing fewer nurses but we recognise that the quality of the nursing team plays a huge part in the overall care of your animal. Our hospital is staffed by nurses 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so your horse will be supervised around the clock. In addition to the nursing staff there is always at least one veterinary surgeon on site throughout the night.

We have extensive facilities and have a wide array of diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical equipment as well as the expertise to use them.

What our clients say


Our horse was diagnosed with grass sickness and rushed into Liphook Equine Hospital. The vets and other staff were terrific – they took real trouble to look after him, not just medically, but also making a fuss of him and keeping us informed about his progress. He made a complete recovery and is doing his first 1* event next month!
