Welcome to Stewart Veterinary Services

Equine nutrition can be confusing — yet owners have voted health and nutrition as the topics they most want to learn about!

With that goal in mind, and the belief that better information makes for healthier horses, educating horse owners is a key responsibility for equine veterinarians — and the key role of Stewart Veterinary Services.

The concept that nutrition underpins the prevention and management of many horse health problems means research in equine nutrition and metabolism is gaining momentum — improving our capacity for early intervention and reducing the incidence of diseases — leading to a longer, happier, healthier partnership for horses and owners.

The horse is a strange paradox of strength and acquiescence — and this presents profound challenges for those with responsibility for their welfare. Paramount in this obligation are owners, breeders, trainers and veterinarians.

Educating horse owners to prevent preventable diseases and offering better nutritional information is the vital aspect of this site.

If you have any questions, please contact us.

Thank you.
