“We have found McGonnell & Gillatt to be a very professional and caring practice, able to cope with all situations. Continuity and communications are excellent and all being equine specialists mean they have a good way of handling horses. They have very up-to-date equipment for diagnosis on site, making this practice very cost effective for us. Specialists in breeding, AI & embryo transfers, pre-purchase vetting, lameness diagnosis & treatment and emergency care means they cover all our needs.”
Jennie Loriston-Clarke MBE, FBHS NPS Dip (Catherston Stud, Over Wallop)
"Richard Gillatt of McGonnell and Gillatt has overseen and undertaken all of Greatwood’s veterinary work since 2008. Over the years the Practice have helped me with many and varied problems with the horses we have in our care.
As the leading racehorse rescue charity, we can be referred welfare cases directly from World Horse Welfare and RSPCA, and we can always rely on McGonnell and Gillatt to act promptly and efficiently. The team of vets can be relied upon for the best attention and professionalism in sometimes extremely difficult circumstances.
The nature of Greatwood’s work means that our horses need particular care and attention to detail. Many horses have left here for rewarding new careers solely because long term problems have been ironed out with sometimes revolutionary new techniques or medication. In addition, the portable diagnostic equipment means that many conditions can be identified on site, thereby preventing expensive and unnecessary travelling.
In circumstances when it is not possible to maintain a horse’s quality of life, the kindness and sensitivity of Richard and his team, is second to none.
There are other factors that lead me to highly recommend McGonnell and Gillatt; the advice always available at the end of the telephone, the efficiency of those who run the office and the reliability and promptness of call out.
Last but not least, Richard and Andrew lead a friendly, professional and efficient veterinary team".
Here is an example of just one of the success stories:
Rescued late December 2011 in extremely poor condition (1.5/5). He was suffering with diarrhoea, a heavy worm burden and malnutrition. Under the careful guidance of Richard and supportive therapy, his condition has improved and his prognosis is good.

"I would recommend McGonnell and Gillatt Veterinary Practice to anyone ....
They are not only extremely experienced, knowledgeable and caring vets, but they always seem to 'go the extra mile' for the clients and horses they work with. I can not thank them and the wonderful girls that run their office enough - they have been so supportive to both myself and my mare through some very stressful situations."
