Towcester Equine Vets have a specifically designed theatre with a state-of-the-art operating table to ensure optimal positioning of your horse during surgical procedures. Experienced vets monitor your horse closely throughout, with multi-parameter anaesthetic monitoring. Whilst recovery from general anaesthesia can involve risk; every care is taken to reduce this through sedative drugs and padded induction/recovery boxes and the ability to assist your horse’s recovery where required.
We can perform elective procedures under general anaesthesia (including arthroscopic investigation), utilising the skill, experience and knowledge of our external veterinary consultants. Our surgical suite includes an arthroscopy tower to enable visualisation inside joints for both diagnosis and treatment of orthopaedic pathology.
We can also offer laser removal of skin tumours including sarcoids and melanomas. Whilst we endeavour to carry out these procedures as standing surgeries, we have the facilities to undertake general anaesthesia for access to more complex lesions.
With the exception of colic surgeries, which are referred to a referral hospital, we are able to offer extensive surgical provision including emergency treatment of wounds and or traumatic injuries.
