Liz has seen my veteran horse on several occasions in the past couple of years.  She has always been very sensible and kind in her approach to his care with a willingness to give things time before undertaking any expensive investigations but recognising when intervention is required.  Her communication is great, her explanations clear and she was prepared to spend the time to get to know my horse, which I greatly appreciated.

About Liz

I now have over 20 years experience as an equine veterinary surgeon and am an RCVS Recognised Specialist in Equine Surgery (Orthopaedics) and a European Specialist in Equine Surgery. I grew up in the south west of Scotland and qualified from Glasgow University in 2000.  Having grown up around horses, at an early age I realised the importance of keeping those horses as sound as possible, and this is probably what prompted my interest in equine orthopaedics and lameness. I worked in various large hospitals around the UK and also for a brief spell in Canada, before settling in Kent in 2008. 

I founded Barr Equine Veterinary Ltd in December 2018.
