VET CLINIC (EVC)
EQUINE VETERINARY CLINIC (EVC)
The Equine Veterinary Clinic (EVC) is the only veterinary hospital for horses in Greece and one of the biggest in the Balkans. It was built to the highest standards of excellence in preparation for the Athens 2004 Olympics during the development of the Racecourse and Olympic Equestrian Venue in Markopoulo. The EVC handles all surgical referrals and is staffed by clinicians who specialize in equine surgery, medicine and orthopedics.
The EVC admits referral and emergency cases for surgical, medical and lameness conditions. It includes two operating theatres, for orthopedic, colic, and other surgery procedures. Further facilities include anesthetic boxes (linked by an overhead rail system to the operating theatres), an examination room with stocks and five further examination rooms for radiography, ultrasonography, endoscopy, and other diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
Staffed by our experienced veterinary team, horses are seen either as out-patients, or can be hospitalized in our general stabling areas and intensive care boxes depending on their needs.
The EVC veterinarians provide a quick response service for the racecourse, covering all track work and race day emergencies, which includes two fully equipped horse ambulances ensuring the safe and rapid transport of horses back to the EVC. Further there is an ambulatory service provided by our veterinarians for horses stabled within the Racecourse complex.
The veterinary team at the EVC provides the following veterinary services:
- Orthopedic surgery: arthroscopy, fracture repair, joint lavage, etc.
- Soft tissue Surgery: colic, castration, wind, wound debridement, etc.
- Lameness investigation, diagnosis and therapy
- Digital Radiography
- Internal Medicine
- Laboratory Examinations
OUR VETERINARY TEAM
The EVC has a highly experienced team dedicated to care of the horse, providing a prompt, personal and efficient service to all our clients. We work closely with trainers in Thoroughbred racing to help look after the health and welfare of their racehorses and by doing so optimize the performance of each horse and minimize their risk of injury and sickness. We also work closely with the equestrian community and have a growing collaboration with referring private practitioners providing support for complex orthopedic, medical and surgical cases. All our clinicians are FEI-accredited as Event Treating Veterinarians and some act as FEI Veterinary Delegates in Greece and abroad. Our team currently consists of three veterinary surgeons and an assistant who strive to provide the best standard of care for you and your horses.
