General information about this Surgery:


Paton and Lee provides first class veterinary care to all equines, large or small

Based in the heart of Essex, we are a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Tier 2 Accredited Equine Practice. You can trust the high standard of veterinary care given to your favourite equine, whether for routine work, or in emergencies at any time of day.

Unlike many practices, we provide our own emergency cover, so when it matters most, you can contact a vet you know and trust. With two veterinary surgeons on duty at all times, you can always rely on the same high standard of service.


Our team of eighteen staff is made up of highly trained and experienced equine vets, nurses and clerical staff, as well as associates. The whole team at Paton and Lee is dedicated to the welfare of horses and w
e pride ourselves on our traditional values and friendly family feel.


Whether for routine veterinary work, pre-purchase examinations or emergency and surgical work, we are here to help. 
Paton and Lee provides a full ambulatory service, including routine vaccinations, routine and advanced dentistry and all aspects of equine breeding work.

We are happy to carry out routine work on Saturdays.

Additional Practice Details


Paton and Lee has now been based at Hoo Hall, Rivenhall, for 30 years. During that time the practice has grown and developed beyond all recognition, but it has never lost its traditional values.

Today, with 7 vets and 11 other members of staff, life at Hoo Hall is as busy as ever. There are now two vets on call at any time, and the office remains open on Saturdays, providing our clients with the excellent service they expect. We also have a lot more equipment to use: digital X-rays, a number of high-tech ultrasound machines, digital video endoscopy and gastroscopy, shockwave therapy, full anaesthetic monitoring equipment ... the list goes on.

Importantly though, despite the huge and rapid expansion of Paton and Lee, the practice always manages to maintain a friendly, caring and compassionate service for our clients. The expansion will undoubtedly continue, but Paton and Lee will always strive to maintain its traditional 'family feel'.
