Clinica Equina Bagnarola is an equine hospital located in Bagnarola di Budrio, near Bologna. It was founded in 1988 based on specialized centers previously born in other countries like United States, England or Germany.

In 33 years of activity, Clinica Equina Bagnarola offered thousands of hospitalized horses state-of-the-art diagnostic and surgical resources. In Italy, it pioneered emergency abdominal surgery, arthroscopy and scintigraphy. A 24 hours, 365 days staff is available to offer colleagues and clients a continuous service, both for consultations and scheduled visits and for emergencies, where timeliness to safeguard the patient’s life is essential.

We work side by side with referring veterinarians and customers to offer the best possible solution for their horse’s health.



Clinica Equina Bagnarola is immersed in the Bolognese plain and consists of two buildings: a stable with 10 large boxes for the hospitalized horses and the main building. The latter consists of an examination room, a room for diagnostic imaging, two operatory theatres with recovery boxes, a laboratory, a cafeteria and offices. Each examination or surgical room is ready with all the necessary equipment.
