Good health means good performance for any athlete.

Race horses require personalised care for their unique lifestyle, diet and health needs. Our hospital takes a special interest in these special athletes.

Dr. Dave Lemmon is particularly enthusiastic and passionate about performance horses, as he owns a few himself. He ensures each one brought in for his care is attended to with the vigilance and loving tenderness you’d expect from a fellow horse lover. He routinely travels to provide equine care throughout the Northern Beaches area, including Proserpine, Sarina, Koumala and Nebo.
