Equine Services

Our equine vet David Howes is available for appointments, both at the stables and in the clinic. 

David spent time as locum working for Vets on Alabama in 2017 while sailing around New Zealand with his family before heading offshore to the South Pacific Islands later that year.  After a sailing season in the

islands, they headed to Melbourne, Australia where David worked in mixed large animal practice mentoring

younger vets in equine clinical work and coming back to New Zealand periodically for equine surgical

locums in the Waikato before COVID-19. 


David is an experienced equine surgeon, having spent over a decade working in the Waikato as one of the principle surgeons amongst four big hospitals where he was well known.
