Beanie (shown below) was born with a wry nose (congenital deformation). The University's team at the Camden Equine Centre reconstructed his face, allowing him to suckle and breath properly. He is now happy and healthy.
Help us improve the welfare and treatments of more horses, just like Beanie, by donating to Camden Equine Centre's equipment priorities.
Enhancing outcomes and welfare in the treatment of horses
Horses are one of life’s greatest joys but like humans they often need complex medical care. Although veterinary medicine contributes significantly to advances made in human healthcare, it is the commercial availability of equipment developed for humans that has allowed us to improve our outcomes in horse medicine. Most of our advanced surgical and medical equipment is developed and marketed by human healthcare providers, often making cost of the equipment prohibitive for use in horses.
Camden Equine Centre
The Centre requires special equipment which is crucial in improving treatment outcomes and the welfare of our equine patients. Major advances in fracture repair and wound treatment equipment have been made in the last few years, improving the outcomes of equine patients exponentially.
Support the treatment of horses today
In order to allow access to this equipment for our equine patients, the Camden Equine Centre, The University of Sydney’s Horse teaching hospital is seeking help to update its equipment to the latest state of the art technologies. The goal is to significantly improve the welfare of the horses we treat by enhancing treatment outcomes including unnecessary euthanasia.
Gifts of all sizes can make a huge difference in the treatment we can provide our horses. 100% of all donations will go directly to the Camden Equine Centre equipment priorities fund which will help provide state of the art equipment to the Camden Equine Centre, ensuring all horses can receive the treatment and rehabilitation they need to live happy and healthy lives.
All donations $2 and above are tax deductible.
