Western Equine Veterinary Services (WEVS) are ambulatory equine veterinarians servicing the western side of Melbourne. We have had a couple of name changes over the years (originally 'Dr Ray Horsey and Associates', then 'Horsey Robson & Associates', and now 'WEVS') but can proudly say the practice has been providing expert equine veterinary care to all equine pursuits in the west for the past 30 years.
Our practice is based around Werribee, approximately 25 minutes west of the Melbourne cbd. We routinely service an approximate 50km radius from this location, including suburbs such as Werribee, Hoppers Crossing, Rockbank, Melton, Sunbury, Bacchus Marsh, Little River and Lara, though do travel further by arrangement.
If you would like to bring your horse to us we have a 3 acre property in Werribee South where we have facilities to perform veterinary procedures in a safe, controlled environment, as well as having room to agist sick/injured horses until they are well enough to go home.
Being exclusively equine focused, we believe we provide a higher than average level of knowledge and expertise in all areas of equine veterinary science.
With the heart of the Victorian harness racing industry right on our doorstep, we have vast experience treating standard bred racehorses, and have had great success assisting trainers and owners get the most out of their equine athletes. We service thoroughbred racehorse trainers at the Flemington and Geelong racecourses, and are the closest equine practice to the Werribee racecourse international quarantine centre (Werribee International Horse Centre).
Also being located just 5 minutes from the Werribee Park National Equestrian Centre we are the major ambulatory practice providing service to show horses, performance horses, polo ponies, and western breeds who regularly attend events at this world class venue.
Over the spring and summer we provide high quality routine ambulatory reproductive services such as mare ultrasound scanning, artificial insemination, pregnancy testing and general foal care. Each season we also agist, service, and foal down brood mares at our Werribee South facilities and can offer a set fee option for work done on these mares on site.
We offer veterinary supervised agistment at our Werribee South property. This is available to both our regular veterinary clients, as well as new clients looking for short term agistment for their horse.
We often look after horses for clients who prefer we monitor their horses recovery from illness/injury closely, and those who like the piece of mind of leaving their precious pet with their vet while they are on holidays.
We also take referral cases from other veterinary clinics for post surgical rehabilitation (ie race horses after orthopaedic surgery, throat surgery, etc).
Likewise we can offer short term agistment to equestrian enthusiasts looking for a less stressful alternative to boxing their horse(s) while attending events at the Werribee Park Equestrian Centre.
Our paddocks each have large sturdy shelters and are fenced with safe durable pcv post and rail.
