A radiation therapy centre for horses
Your horse has a tumour and radiation therapy, a standard method which has been used in human medicine for decades, is simply not available for horses?
This situation gave rise to the motivation to design a radiation therapy centre that combines both: state-of-the-art radiation therapy technology as used in human medicine and a clinic that in its size and technical equipment is precisely tailored to the requirements of animal patients. Equinox Healthcare GmbH consistently implements this strategy and high standard: a centre with an area of 8,000 square metres that combines everything necessary for the optimal accommodation of horses and their treatment. When the planning was completed in 2016, construction commenced for a stable housing a total of 12 horses, a large clinic building with a spacious hall, three recovery boxes and a large examination area. The core of the facility is a modern linear accelerator, located in a special room and surrounded by meter-thick concrete walls.
The clinical operation started in autumn 2017. A competent team consisting of veterinarians, radio-oncologists, veterinary assistants, medical-technical assistants, animal keepers, medical physicists and engineers has been working for the animal patients and their owners ever since.
Of course, Equinox Healthcare can also treat domestic animals and pets. The health of your pet is the top priority for our team. We are looking forward to your visit!
