Equine Surgery in the Lowcountry

The ultimate goal of our veterinary team is to provide your animal with the care it needs. Sometimes, that entails surgery. The most common types of equine surgery are for minor lacerations and castrations. These procedures are often conducted without anesthesia, due to the relative difficulty to anesthetize horses. Other common conditions that may require surgery are:

  • Fractures

  • Colic

  • Respiratory disease

  • Reproductive problems

  • Lameness

  • Neoplasia
