TWO equine hospitals are supporting the relief effort in Australia after the recent bushfires by providing animal first-aid supplies.

Minster Veterinary Equine Clinic, which works across York, Malton and Ripon, alongside Rainbow Equine Hospital in Malton are donating supplies, equipment and treatments to various parts of Australia devastated by the recent bushfires.

Rainbow Equine Hospital sent its supplies to Putney Animal Hospital in London, which is one of the RSPCA hospitals, which will then forward the supplies to Australia.

Minster Vetinary Equine Clinic supplied a box of bandaging and first-aid equipment.

Both Rainbow Equine Hospital and Minster Equine Veterinary Clinic are dedicated to providing quality care for horses in numerous equestrian disciplines, with a range of state-of-the-art equipment and highly qualified staff.
