Newmarket Equine Hospital has a dedicated shipping department including vets and secretaries who are specialists in organising pre-export examinations and testing schedules to comply with the differing import requirements to enable horses to travel to countries all around the world.
We work closely with shipping agencies to co-ordinate the veterinary requirements and all of our Practice Vets are Official Veterinarians registered to work on behalf of the APHA.
With travel rules within Europe rapidly changing since January 2021, please call the office or email email@example.com to discuss your requirements with one of our export secretaries.
