Yorkshire Equine Practice can be found at the majority of bloodstock sales held at Tattersalls in Newmarket and Goffs UK (DBS) in Doncaster, upon special request we can be available for Tattersalls and Goffs in Ireland and Arqana in France.
A full set of sales x-rays (including Hong-Kong and USA vettings), videoscopes and overground endoscopys can be taken prior to the sale and uploaded to the repository on the clients behalf.
We offer a pre-purchase examination and endoscopy. We can can also report on x-rays and videoscopes if available.
After purchase you are able to request a 'wind test'. This involves lunging the horse to listen for any abnormal respiratory noise. If any abnormality is detected, the horse may be returned according to specific criteria laid out by the individual sales' company.
If your purchase is required to go abroad we can complete the pre-export tests, examination and organise the necessary paperwork via a reputable shipping agent.
Exports/Travelling your Horse outside the UK
Yorkshire Equine Practice has vets qualified to complete export certificates should you wish to travel any horse abroad.
Horses/Ponies travelling abroad usually require a veterinary inspection 48 hours prior to leaving the UK. An Export Health Certificate has to be completed by a vet. Certain countries will also require blood tests, swabs or quarantine. This is stipulated by the country of import and will be detailed on the Export Health Certificate, which must accompany the horse during transport.
