RVC Partnership

Buckingham Equine Vets are privileged to be in a unique partnership with one of the world's leading veterinary institutions, the Royal Veterinary College (RVC).

In the first collaboration of its kind the RVC and Buckingham Equine Vets now work closely together to further advance the quality of equine care provided by the Practice, while at the same time, offering advanced teaching facilities for veterinary students.

The agreement provides the Practice with organisational and financial support, as well as clinical back-up from world leading experts at the largest and oldest independent veterinary school in the UK.

Student vets, student vet nurses, and vets involved in post-graduate training from the RVC visit the Practice and spend time with our vet team. This allows them to observe the duties we perform and assist in our daily work where required. Having an extra pair of hands is useful to us when out on our rounds and in the clinic.

Our new clinic in Wicken has been built in close consultation with the RVC to deliver a state of the art equine veterinary facility. It has been designed to offer an environment where horses can be effectively examined and treated in an efficient manner, and will house the latest diagnostic equipment and treatment tools. It has also been equipped with teaching aids that will allow students and owners to better understand the processes we are undertaking.

For more information on the RVC and the services they offer horses and horse owners, have a look at their website: www.rvc.ac.uk
