***COVID-19 REGULATIONS & UPDATE***
As @ 15th August 2020:
It has been an extremely challenging few months for so many and we would firstly like to thank you, our clients, for your continued patience and understanding towards our revised and required working practices during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The UK veterinary professionals receive continued guidance from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, the British Veterinary Association and for equine vets, the British Equine Veterinary Association. This guidance is in response to the ongoing Government guidelines for working restrictions and this is what dictates our working practises during this time. Our vets (and all vets throughout the UK) have been continuing to do their very best to maintain the welfare of farm animals, pets and wildlife since Lockdown began and we thank you all for being so understanding and for helping to keep our vets (and their families) safe by adhering to social distancing requirements when we have attended appointments for your equines.
Further to the most recent and ongoing guidelines, we would like to advise on the following procedures:
We are able to complete ALL vaccination boosters (both flu and tetanus).
From 1st June 2020 we began conducting first vaccination re-starts for anyone who had missed their annual flu booster. For all flu vaccination re-starts, we worked alongside the drug companies to offer a vaccination amnesty. This allowed for you to receive your second vaccination free of charge during the month of July (visit charges still applied) to assist with getting your horses' vaccinations up to date.
We are continuing to maintain social distancing throughout all appointments and ask that the following guidelines are met:
- If we are visiting the yard to vaccinate multiple horses, please ensure only 1 person is appointed to handle all the horses.
- Please ensure that horses are tied up for the vet, preferably outside, ensuring that you remain at least 2 metres away from the vet at all times.
- To minimise visits to yards, please co-ordinate with other liveries at your yard.
**Be organised - Communicate - Book in.**

The clinic provides a high quality service to horse, pony and donkey owners in the Edinburgh, Mid, West and East Lothian, Falkirk, Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy and Clackmannanshire regions of central Scotland.
At Central Equine Vets we take pride in our dedication to the highest standards in equine veterinary practice. We offer a complete equine veterinary service using veterinary medical technology which cannot be matched by any other private practice within the area.
Malcolm Corsar BVM&S Cert. AVP (EP) MRCVS, Matthew Hanks BVSc MRCVS and Holly Marshall BVM&S CertAVP(EM) MRCVS have over 40 years of combined experience in equine practice, 17 of which have been spent by Malcolm and Matthew working at the world-renowned University of Edinburgh’s Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies (R(D)SVS). During this time, both have become client-recognised equine practitioners, with excellent reputations within eastern central Scotland and the surrounding area. Holly Marshall joined the practice in 2019, adding her excellent equine veterinary expertise to the team.
The goal of Central Equine Vets is to help our clients’ horses to live long, happy and healthy lives. We believe that a key element to a healthy horse is a great client relationship with an experienced equine veterinary surgeon. Malcolm, Matthew and Holly are committed to a professional, caring, personalised service.
