Elective Surgeries

We have a fully stocked surgical suite for your elective orthopedic and soft tissue surgery needs.  With capabilities for both standing surgeries and procedures requiring general anesthesia, we will have a surgery and anesthesia team assigned to your horse's care. Common procedures offered include arthroscopies,  castrations, and laser mass removals.

Emergency Surgeries

For all the unknowns, our team is here for your horse's emergency surgery needs.  From colic surgeries to fracture repairs, our surgery suite is available 24/7.  We understand that these emergency visits can be quite stressful, and our compassionate staff looks to provide the best diagnostics available as well as the surgical intervention capabilities to help you make informed decisions to address your horse's medical needs.

24 Hour Hospital

Attached to our surgery suite is our 24 Hour Hospital.  With 10 stalls, including two climate-controlled stalls, we provide round the clock care tailored to each horse's individual needs.  Two veterinarians live on site to care for cases requiring overnight monitoring, through both stall-side checks and closed circuit camera monitoring to watch for their behavior and catch abnormalities as early as possible. 


On Site Laboratory Equipment

We are equipped with the most up to date lab equipment, which can give results in minutes for critical cases, instead of typical overnight waits when sending to outside labs.  In-house capabilities include:

  • CBC Machine (complete blood count, to assess red blood cells and white blood cells)

  • Chemistry Machine (assesses organ function, electrolyte levels, and glucose levels)

  • Lactate Machine (used mainly to assess severity of colic episodes)

  • Electrolyte and Blood Gas Machine (to monitor vital values both in cases under anesthesia and ICU cases on fluids)

  • Fibrinogen Machine (inflammatory protein marker - machine measures exact value)

  • SAA reader (inflammatory protein marker - machine measures exact value)
