Randwick Equine Centre

Description

The Randwick Equine Centre is a 20 veterinarian, purely equine practice. The practice services a wide range of horses, from miniature ponies to elite Thoroughbred race horses. Although we have extensive experience servicing the Thoroughbred racing industry, a wide range of breeds and conditions are treated on a daily basis.

Our hospital facilities include two surgery suites, two imaging suites (digital radiology, ultrasound, video-endoscopy and nuclear scintigraphy). The practice includes specialists in the fields of surgery, anaesthesia and medicine. The practice is supported by a fully equipped on-site laboratory. The teaching activities of REC include intern (4 per annum) training and short term practical experience for both national and international veterinary and pre-veterinary students. Placements are available year round.
