The School’s Equine Hospital is Scotland’s biggest and most advance equine specialist centre in the UK. Over 2,000 equids (horses, donkeys and mules) are referred to the hospital each year. Many of whom require intensive evaluation, complex surgery and monitoring. Our Hospital provides high quality care to equids across Scotland and Northern England.
However our equine care is not limited to the United Kingdom. We are working with vets and students overseas to improve the lives of working donkeys and better educate the people who rely on these sometimes forgotten beasts of burden.

Our Hospital for Small Animals provides excellent care for a host of pets including dogs, cats, rabbits, and exotics. We also offer a range of special services including emergency and critical care. Our hospital staff and students strive to provide the very best of care for all our animal patients.

Our ophthalmology department was established in 2019 to investigate and treat vision threatening and painful conditions of the eyes, and to teach the next generation of veterinary surgeons about ocular disease. Whilst based in the Hospital for Small Animals, our veterinary ophthalmologists work across the campus, offering specialist advice and treatment to species great and small.
