About Larkmead Equine Vets

At Larkmead Equine Vets we understand how important your horse is to you – you can count on our equine vets to provide a high-quality tailored service to suit your needs and those of your much-loved companion.

We have been providing expert veterinary care to the equine community in South Oxfordshire since the 60s, and we’re proud to remain as independent vets, which allows us to always put the needs of the animals under our care first.
