Rainbow Equine Hospital are uniquely equipped for colic and critical care cases.
With over 300 Colic referrals each year, colics comprise a major part of the hospital caseload. Management of colic and critical care cases is a team effort and with large numbers of cases coming through we have in place a very experienced and caring team on site 24/7, 365 days per year. Our three internal medicine specialists (ECEIM & ACVIM) are uniquely equipped in the North East to care for colics, sick-foals and other cases that necessitate intensive nursing and veterinary care.
A team of vets who live onsite, dedicated surgical and medical specialist vet and nursing support, one to one nursing, camera surveillance monitoring in all boxes, a plasma and blood bank onsite, oxygen support onsite, on site 24/7 laboratory mean we can provide the best round the clock care that should be given to a sick horse.
Two new surgery suites mean there is a dedicated emergency theatre that allows colic surgery to be performed whilst simultaneously continuing with the busy elective surgery caseload.
