Welcome To Equus Vets 

We are an independent, equine only practice with four dedicated and experienced equine vets located in Devon. We offer a wide range of ambulatory, clinical and reproduction services.

We cover a large area of Devon from our base in North Tawton, and also have medication pick up points at Okehampton and Hatherleigh.

Equus vets formed on the 1st of August 2017, separating away from its sister company North Park Vets. Equus Vets also works with a large stud farm where we are able to offer reproductive services to both resident and off-site mares, as well as having access to a large recipient mare herd.

We provide a 24-hour service for emergencies; there is an equine vet on-call seven days a week, 365 days a year. In an emergency phone the practice number where you will be redirected to the attending vet.

Our small team of vets offer a truly personal service ensuring dedicated care for you and your horse, whether you are a professional, an ambitious amateur, or leisure.

If you would like further information on what we have to offer please don’t hesitate to speak to a member of the Equus team on 01837 214004 or alternatively email info@equusvets.co.uk




During this difficult period we are trying to continue our normal quality of service for your Equines. Please understand that we are trying to protect our staff at the practice as well as clients when the vets come out to visit. Here are a couple of things clients need to understand.

  • If you or your household are in quarantine and your horse needs veterinary treatment please contact us via the telephone and let our reception team know. The vet will contact you via the telephone and triage the best they can. If it is an emergency please be courteous and let the vet do their job and keep your distance.
  • Please make sure the vet has access to soap and water at your yard and don't be offended if they do not shake your hand or accept a cup of tea!
  •  Medication dispenses can still be collected from the surgeries as normal but as we are trying to reduce the footfall into each surgery, medication will now be put in the box at each surgery.
  •  Payments are now not going to be taken at the surgery however we are able to take payment over the telephone or via bacs.

We apologies for any inconveniences at this difficult time. If you have any concerns please contact the Equus office 01837214004 or info@equusvets.co.uk to speak to a member of our team.
