ABOUT

US

My name is Orla Roan (BVSc, BEqSc) and I am offering equine veterinary services to horse owners, breeders and trainers in the beautiful Tauranga and the wider Bay of Plenty. I have 12 years of experience in New Zealand, Kentucky and Australia to offer you and I look forward to meeting you and your horse to see how I can help.  

 

By way of introduction, I enrolled in an equine science degree in my homeland in Ireland which really sparked my desire to work with horses. I came to New Zealand to work in the intensive care foal unit, and then decided to enrol at Massey University as a veterinarian with a focus on horses.

 

Early in my veterinary career I was lucky enough to be accepted into an internship at a leading equine hospital, Hagyard Equine Medical Institute in Kentucky, which gave me a crash course in providing gold standard, often very intensive medical treatment to a wide variety of conditions in horses. Coming back to New Zealand, I then spent 10 years at Waikato Equine Veterinary Services which both provided me exposure to all aspects of the equine industry in New Zealand, and gave me a wide range of experience in managing almost any situation where you might need veterinary care for your horse. More recently, 2 years working in Australia solely in reproduction means I am well equipped to handle your horses's natural or artificial breeding requirements.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

“Orla was the veterinarian for our thoroughbred stud Brighthill Farm for 10 years. The varied work load consisted of mare reproductive work, foal medicine, lameness examinations, branding, castrations and the list goes on. She approached each situation professionally while providing compassionate care to each horse. I would not hesitate in recommending her to attend your horse."
