"We understand that donkeys need special veterinary care tailored to their needs."

Donkeys are not small horses, and their natural environment is not the temperate conditions of the UK but a more semi-desert like environment where food is scarce and of a poorer quality. As veterinary surgeons we understand that donkeys need special veterinary care tailored to their needs.

In the UK donkeys live a pasture lifestyle, and many of the clinical problems which arise are the result of too much food and not enough exercise. These are problems which are exacerbated as a donkey reaches old age.

Donkeys frequently live into their thirties, so are a long term undertaking and need regular veterinary and dental care throughout their lives.
