Hospital and Referrals

At Torch Equine Vets we care for our patients as we would our own horses so you can always expect the highest quality treatment and care combined with a friendly and sympathetic service.  Mullacott Equine Hospital continues to meet the rigorous standards required to be called a hospital.  We are one of only three Equine Hospitals in Devon and Cornwall.

The Veterinary Hospital is staffed around the clock, 365 days of the year for 24 hour emergencies and resident nursing care.  Equine in-patients are never left unattended overnight.  Our nurses answer all emergency calls out of hours, you will never be diverted to a call centre or answering service.

Our fully equipped equine operating theatre and recovery box allows us to complete a range of surgical procedures.  We have vets with post graduate qualifications in surgery with years of experience supported by a team of dedicated veterinary nurses.

We provide a medical and surgical referral service to practices in the south west, giving a large number of horses access to our clinical and surgical expertise and equipment.  For more information on our facilities and referral service please ring the hospital on 01271 879516.
