Clarendon Equine used to be a part of Clarendon House Vets (Equine and small animal) until the small animal and Equine departments split in 2010 and from this point on Clarendon Equine was run as an independent GP equine vets by Mr Rob Appleton.
Victoria Hall recently bought the business in October 2018 after Rob sadly passed away in 2017. Since 2018 we’ve been heavily investing in new kit and making lots of changes to the way we work to create a friendly and really well-equipped GP equine practice.
Victoria has a vested interest in making the equine practice work for all of the team as flexibly as possible so we can all enjoy what we do. Although the name has been around for a very long time, we are very much a new business where I welcome all ideas from the whole team to shape what we do so its works for us and the clients.
Organisational aims & mission
We aim to provide a a really good GP equine service in Essex – both ambulatory and clinic-based. We also have connections with Rossdales, Sarcoid Surgery and the Equine Dental Clinic so that we can keep referrals in-house and benefit from following up all our cases where we can at the clinic.
We want to be able to let our vets shape their career path and support their interests – CERT AVP is actively encouraged for everyone!
We are only 2.5 years into our new start and aim to be a practice of at least 3-4 vets working full/part-time. Our Mission long-term is to have a team that can offer general practice and more advanced treatments in-house so we can best utilise the facilities we have for standing surgery and general anaesthesia.
