Update about the admission of cases at the Equine Hospital (June 11, 2021)

The Equine Hospital continues to receive emergencies and cases whose health status may deteriorate in the short term. Outpatient “in and out” will also gradually resume.

The Equine Hospital is restricting its admissions (June 7, 2021)

Due to a high case load and an outbreak of infectious disease* which has led to a significant increase in resources allocated to disinfection, the Equine Hospital will only accept vital emergencies until Monday, June 14 at the earliest. Elective appointments will therefore be temporarily suspended and rescheduled, for those already scheduled during this period.

We are aware of the impact of this situation and are actively working towards a return to our regular activities as soon as possible.

We thank you for your understanding,

The management of the CHUV and the medical team of the Equine Hospital

* For information: rotavirus in foals and diarrhea in adult horses (for the moment all the tests are negative for usual infectious agents).

We ask you to contact us by phone, at the usual numbers, before any visit to our facilities.
Our reception teams will ask you a few questions, particularly about your health.

This will allow us to put measures in place to ensure the safe management of emergencies for you and our team members.

Please note that, as a preventive measure and for an indefinite period, all visits to hospitalized patients will be suspended. This measure is effective from March 15, 2020 at 1:00 p.m.
