About us

Hinterland Equine Veterinary Services celebrated 10 years of service to the horse community of the Sunshine Coast on the first of December 2018. HEVS was started by Dr Stuart Bryce in 2008, and operates as a first opinion equine veterinary practice to all horses from Gympie to Peachester. Prior to commencing this business, Stuart worked extensively with horses, cattle, dogs and cats in a variety of practices across South East Queensland and Northern NSW. As a consequence, HEVS is well placed to examine and treat all species, although our special interest is horses.


We provide a comprehensive range of services for the horses in our care. These include:

Annual vaccinations and health checks

A comprehensive range of surgical procedures

Dental examinations and floating

Lameness diagnosis and treatment

Digital radiography

Reproductive and tendon ultrasound

Artificial insemination using chilled and frozen semen

Embryo transfer

Pre-purchase examinations


Comprehensive pathology

Mobile service


We also liaise closely with a highly qualified professional farrier for hoof complaints, and a specialist veterinary physiotherapist to assist in remediating the whole horse. HEVS is committed to providing the best quality practice possible. To this end, Stuart engages in both formal conference-based education, as well as constant informal contact with a variety of registered specialists.


Please contact us to arrange an appointment or to discuss any concerns you may have regarding your horse.
