The hospital led by a specialist equine surgeon Dr Sarah Jalim includes eleven equine vets and is supported by a team of dedicated equine nurses and stable attendants who provide a high level of services to all equine patients and their owners. 

The hospital offers a wide range of specialist services including equine surgery, lameness examination, diagnostic imaging and pre-purchase examinations to name a few. Within our fully equipped hospital we offer: 

  • Fully equipped surgical suite with padded induction/recovery box 
  • Hydraulic surgical table with overhead hoist 
  • Large working area with non-slip rubber flooring 
  • Padded crushes for mare and foals 

During normal business hours, Bendigo Equine Hospital provides ambulatory services to Bendigo and surrounding areas. Travel beyond these regions and throughout other parts of the state is occasionally undertaken by prior arrangement. 

Emergency service is provided to many of these areas after hours, depending on location and availability of veterinarians. Please note that, if a veterinarian is unable to attend your property, there will always be an option to present our horse to the Bendigo Equine Hospital.
