General Medicine and Surgery

Horses are athletes and like any athlete their best performances are achieved when they're in perfect health. The better they are managed, the easier it is to keep them in the ideal condition, whether to attain that top performance, or simply to be a pleasant ride or happy companion. However, as anyone who works with horse knows, they will injure themselves from time to time no matter how careful you are! Totally Vets can attend to the individual patient right through to helping with overall management to prevent diseases and other conditions that may threaten the good health of your horse.


Equine Veterinary Dentistry

At Totally Vets we like to do everything possible to keep your horse happy and healthy.  An important aspect of this is routine dental care on a regular basis, which will make a big difference to your horse's wellbeing and longevity. Regular dental checks will identify many potential problems and enable early treatment before problems cause any pain with eating or altered head carriage when working.  Our vets attend regular training and refresher courses to keep up-to-date with the latest techniques. Totally Vets also continually invest in new and updated equipment to ensure we provide the best possible service. 


Radiography and Sonography

Totally Vets keeps apace with the great strides made in veterinary radiology and sonography and offers high quality digital radiography services and ultrasonography of equine limbs. These imaging techniques offer insight into the internal hidden structures of the horses body and are used as an integral part of all the methods available for diagnosis. These procedures can be carried out at your place if your facilities are suitable or you can bring your horse to Totally Vets Awapuni branch.                     



Endoscopy allows Totally Vets to look at the internal workings of the horse, especially the  upper respiratory airways. Endoscopy is a hugely powerful tool in diagnosing respiratory diseases and conditions.
