How to arrange a referral to Oakham Veterinary Hospital
We gratefully receive all types of referrals; which are usually referred by your regular veterinary surgeon. To enable us to evaluate the horse to the best of our ability we will require a detailed case history from your usual vet.
Once your vet has assessed your horse and made the decision to refer, they will contact us to discuss your horse’s case. They are able to email us history and results if required. Please then contact us to arrange an appointment.
