Perth Equine Vets / About Us
About Perth Equine Vets
At Perth Equine Vets, we know how important horses are to their owners, so your horse will only every be seen by an experienced, equine only vet – whether it is during working hours, or in the middle of the night.
Continuity of care is our practice ethos – as we know how important it is to establish a trusting relationship between clients, their horses and the vet. Our clients trusting their vet is something that is very important to us. With Perth Equine Vets, we will encourage you to have the same veterinary surgeon attend your horse every time, whether it is for a vaccination, lameness check or something else so that a trusting relationship can be developed.
Veterinary care is individual to both, owner and horse circumstances, so we will take the time to explain treatment options to our clients, ensuring we embark on the correct treatment for your horse as an individual.
At Perth Equine Vets, your horse will receive excellent veterinary care tailored to you as an owner.

Meet the Vets
Camilla Church BVMS MRCVS
I settled in Perthshire after my graduation from Glasgow Vet School in 2015. Since then, I have worked with mainly horses in mixed and small animal/equine practices. In 2020, I made the difficult but exciting decision to leave a job that I loved, and set up on my own.
I have additional qualifications as a Permitted Treating Vet for the FEI, and I am a qualified racecourse vet. I enjoy providing vet cover for endurance and hunter trial events, and formed part of the International Blair Horse Trials veterinary team in 2019. On the side, I am a part time college lecturer for veterinary nursing students online, with the North Highland College.
As a mad keen Pony Clubber, horses have always been important to me growing up. I passed the PC A-test in 2017 and since then I have become an accredited Stage 4 professional coach with the BHS, with the Stable Managers Certificate. I have been teaching freelance since 2019, and have lovely clients, both adults and children, that I teach locally in flatwork and jumping. When I’m not teaching, I compete my superstar horse Harriet in BS and BE competitions.

It is recommended that all horses are vaccinated, whether they go out competing or not. All horses can succumb to the fatal disease, Tetanus (lock jaw), which is preventable by a vaccination every 2 years.
Dental examinations are a vital part of the veterinary preventative healthcare for your horse. It is recommended that all horses have their teeth checked at least every 6 to 12 months in order to prevent problems building up and causing pain.
Worming based so FWEC results is vital to prevent resistance becoming a real problem in our horse population. Blanket worming all horse regularly is no longer recommended, and should be based on FWEC results, and risk factors that make them more predisposed to have a higher worm burden.
