The Gut Destedt Horse Clinic in Lower Saxony is a new Altano member and serves customers in the greater Hanover area. Founded in 1997, the clinic has an operating theatre with modern equipment, a dental clinic, two treatment rooms and 10 horse stalls, one of which can be used as an insulating box. Managing Director Dr. Rüdiger Beier and his wife Dr. Monica Venner’s team consists of 16 employees, including 8 veterinarians and cares for approx. 3200 horses and 600 small animals per year. The clinic covers the entire spectrum of equine medicine in the mobile and inpatient care of the patient. Our own veterinarians offer treatments at the highest medical level in the fields of internal medicine, gynaecology, foal medicine, dentistry, ophthalmology and surgery. In addition, the clinic has a small animal practice, coordinated with a network of external specialists to ensure optimal care.
Managing Director Dr. Rüdiger Beier is pleased about the merger with the Altano Gruppe. "The Pferdeklinik Destedt GmbH is pleased to belong to the Altano Gruppe. We see the merger of horse clinics in the Altona Group as a good strategy to further improve the standard of professional competence in the future, to optimise the organisation in the administrative area and to guarantee a high degree of security for the employees.
Dr. Victor Baltus, CEO of the Altano Gruppe, adds: "Due to the central location and the modern expansion of the clinic, all patients benefit from being part of the Altano network. This now consists of ten horse clinics and offers comprehensive professional care for the animals. I am very pleased about the collaboration with the successfully established horse clinic in Central Germany."
