How to register with the DVEP

The Dick Vet Equine Practice provides a comprehensive first opinion service for local horse owners.

A horse is led by a man

We are committed to providing excellent care and helping clients and the public take better care of horses.

Why register with us?

Our practice offers first class clinical care for your horse, based in an advanced referral hospital with excellent facilities. We have a wealth of specialist knowledge at our disposal and a full range of emergency 24 hour cover services are provided to our clients.

As a teaching practice we also educate our final year veterinary students in applying their knowledge to practical situations. This means that staff are always trained in the latest techniques and procedures. Students are supervised at all times and your animal will always be under the care of one of our clinicians. By choosing to bring your animal to us you can help the future of the veterinary profession learn and develop into the vets of the future.

Registering your horse

We accept clients who are based in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas. To register your horse you can either visit us or call us on 0131 650 6253 to talk to our reception staff who will be happy to guide you through the registration process.

Alternately, please complete our online registration form and we will contact you to confirm your registration.

Registration Exceptions

The Dick Vet Equine Hospital is a referral hospital which has cases referred to it from clinicians across the UK. If you have been referred to us from another veterinarian, we cannot accept you as a registered client for one year from the end of your referral.
