A new UK-wide equine brand has been created by IVC Evidensia after a surge in equine teams joining over the past 18 months. The recent influx has massively strengthened the equine network and the IVC Evidensia Equine Vets brand has been created in collaboration with the companies Equine Clinical Board, which is made up of working equine vets representing the diverse portfolio of practices. The new Equine Vets brand will allow better communication for equine teams within the IVC Evidensia group as well as collaboration with the wider equine world.
