Welcome To Our Website 

Macarthur Barstow and Gibbs Ltd is a mixed practice providing veterinary services to ‘all creatures great and small’. When the Practice first began in the 1950’s, it was predominantly a farm practice, serving the hundreds of small farms in the vicinity. Working horses made up a proportion of the caseload, although tractors soon took over many of the jobs previously powered by the horse.

Over the next sixty years, the Practice grew from strength to strength, providing more specialised services as it grew. We now have small animal veterinary surgeons, each with their own area of interest, and also consultants specialising in orthopaedic surgery and ophthalmology. Physiotherapy consultations are also offered on a regular basis as are behavioural clinics. Our puppy parties are legendary and take over the Practice on a Wednesday evening.

The equine team work mainly as ambulatory veterinary surgeons, visiting many premises each day. We also have facilities for day cases at our own RCVS approved clinic. All of our equipment is portable allowing detailed investigations to be performed at home. These include ultrasonography, radiography and endoscopy. All members of the team undergo additional training in their areas of interest- these include lameness, back pain, acupuncture and dentistry. Artificial insemination, using fresh chilled semen, is also available.

We are committed to improving the health and welfare of all horses, ponies and donkeys under our care. Preventative health programmes are available for yards –we have the first two Strangles accredited livery yards in England, having taken the lead following an extended outbreak of the disease. Zone visits are offered to encourage preventative vaccinations and worming programmes designed on an annual basis.

Thank you to everyone that came along and supported our events this year. We have had a great time with our dog shows and Hanbury show. We are looking forward to seeing you all again next year.
