due to the risen gasoline costs we see ourselves forced to increase our travel expenses of the mobile horse practice to 01.11.2021 adapt.
In case of planned examinations on a day trip, the travel costs can be charged proportionally per owner, but the prescribed minimum fee is 13€.
In emergency cases and individual cases, a proportional calculation is unfortunately not possible.
In the time outside our regular working hours (weekdays 18:00 – 08:00, holidays and weekends) we charge 3,50€ per driven double kilometer and a mandatory emergency service fee of 50€ net for the journey according to the scale of fees for veterinarians.
We are pleased to be able to continue to offer emergency care for your horses at your stables and thank you for your understanding.

We are happy to offer an eye consultation for diagnostics by appointment on Monday and Wednesday for horses and Tuesday and Thursday for small animals. In urgent cases please contact us to arrange a short-term appointment.
In our pets, there are a variety of eye diseases, most of which are very similar to those of humans, even in their treatment.
Many of the diseases can be very painful for the animals and, if treated incorrectly or too late, can lead to loss of vision and often to loss of the eye itself.
Eye pain is described by humans as a dull, excruciating pain, animals do not show pain in the eyes by crying or whimpering, but are often just calmer and sleep a lot.
In not quite so painful but irritating diseases, they often show frequent blinking or tearing.
Many diseases, such as eyelid malpositions, corneal injuries or inflammations, internal ocular inflammations, glaucomas, injuries and foreign bodies or retinal diseases occur equally in all animal species.
However, some animal species are prone to particular ocular diseases, such as the horse to periodic ocular inflammation or immune-mediated keratitis, the rabbit to lacrimal duct ulceration, the cat to corneal sequestra, or the guinea pig to osseous choristia.
Hereditary eye diseases play a major role in dogs, cats and horses.
Regular examinations are very important in order to document the frequency and severity of genetically caused disorders and thus contribute to the long-term health of the breeds.
Unfortunately, however, in our practice we are not able to carry out breeding examinations. For this purpose we cooperate with colleagues of DOK and specialists of ECVO and ACVO colleges, to whom this examination and documentation is reserved.
Treatment of ocular disease usually consists of local drops or ointments, which usually must be administered several times a day, more often supplemented by oral medications.
Sometimes only an operation remains to solve the eye problem of the animal, the exact diagnostics before is of important importance.
We are also able to perform procedures on horses under general anesthesia and, depending on the patient, also under a general anesthesia.
