Non-Orthopaedic Referral Services

Clyde Vet Group Equine Hospital is on the BEVA list of approved practices willing to take equine emergencies

GENERAL SURGERY

We have a custom built operating theatre with adjacent fully padded recovery room. Induction can be undertaken using a crush door if required and a vet always conducts anaesthesia.  Horses are maintained on isoflurane and a mechanical ventilator can be used when required based on the blood gas picture. During anaesthesia the horse's blood pressure (taken directly), blood gases, exspired CO2 and ECG are monitored. Most horses are recovered from anaesthesia with our assisted recovery system.

  • Colic surgery
