Waterlane Equine Vets

A dedicated equine practice offering personal and professional care to horses and ponies of all types in Gloucestershire and North Wiltshire.

Founded in 2013 by Dr Tim Watson BVM&S PhD MRCVS, a hugely experienced and highly regarded horse vet who has spent over 20 years in equine practice, Waterlane Equine Vets offers a full 24/7 ambulatory service with all the latest mobile diagnostic equipment. Now a five vet practice, WEV has the capacity to deal with a variety of cases including lameness, poor performance, a full range of stud work (including AI) and specialist medicine cases.

We also offer an attractive zero call-out charge for routine, pre-booked appointments within 20 miles of GL6 7PH, subject to prompt payment. In addition to this, for those who struggle to fit appointments around work or other commitments during the day, we offer evening and Saturday morning appointments on selected dates each month for a small visit charge.

Please contact us to discuss our services, book an appointment or register your horse with our practice.

  • 5 star review  Waterlane Equine Vets are fantastic. The vets are extremely knowledgeable but it goes beyond that. They are kind, empathic and understand just what the horses mean to us. You are never treated like a number. The service is professional and dedicated. This applies to all involved at Waterlane. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for top class equine veterinary services.

  • 5 star review  My horse Spirit came down with Laminitis and the vets here have given an outstanding service. Tim came out twice as an on call vet at the weekend, and spent as long as it took to get Spirit comfortable, and then Holly came several times, nothing was too much trouble, she even helped me with poultice dressings when I didn have any, and was at the end of her mobile phone, if I was ever worried about anything. Laura in the office even helped give advice about how to fill in my insurance claim. All in all, they were all brilliant.
