Sophie Hug Pferdeinternistin


As a diplomate of the European College of Equine Internal Medicine (ECEIM),  apart from working as a regular equine veterinarian, I specialise in the diagnostics and treatment of internal problems in the horse.

Modern technology devices make it  possible to carry out more specialised diagnostics out in the field. Examples: Endoscopies (gastroscopy, bronchoscopy, cystoscopy etc.), ultrasonographic examinations, biopsies, blood work and others.


GASTROSCOPY - typical signs: ear pinning whilst grooming, crib biting, recurrent colic, slow eating, little appetite, repeated yawning, kicking out under saddle

WEIGHT LOSS/DIARRHEA: Blood work, dental examinations, abdominocentesis, ultrasonography, biopsies of the intestines

CHRONIC COUGH: Endoscopy and bronchoalveolar Lavage

DERMATOLOGY: Biopsies, cultures, allergy testing

POOR PERFORMANCE: Thorough history and examination incl. cardiovascular system, ecg,  endoscopy etc.
