As @ 24th March 2020

Further to the most recent Government restrictions, Central Equine Vets will now be carrying out only Urgent and Emergency visits for equines.

We are awaiting recommendations from the BVA (British Veterinary Association) and RCVS (Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons) regarding vaccinations and will update once we have this. We will no longer be carrying out Booster vaccinations, unless there is a clinical requirement and this will be assessed by the vet.

All cases will be triaged first via telephone with the vets and where possible, a tele-consultation will take place.

We ask that when vets attend your equine, owners/handlers respect the following protocol:

- the owner/handler remains a minimum of 2 metres away from the vet at all times.

- the equine is tied-up outside.

Please cancel your appointment or arrange for someone else to handle your horse if:

- you as the horse owner or handler have a temperature or a new and continuous cough.

- you are currently self-isolating because you are showing symptoms related to Coronavirus.

- you have been in contact with anyone with suspected symptoms in the last 14 days.

We appreciate that many of you will have questions and we will be working very hard to answer all of these for you.

Please be assured that we will be doing our very best at all times to consider the safety of our team, you, our clients and your equines during these challenging times.

Stay safe, everyone, look after yourselves and each other (from a distance!) and we will get through this.

The Central Equine Vets Team


Central Equine Veterinary Services Ltd is a first opinion, ambulatory (mobile) equine veterinary practice based in Edinburgh. 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.
