Surgery

Our Invercargill hospital facility has a fully equipped equine surgical theatre. This allows us to offer a broad range of surgical procedures. We can cater for both elective (non emergency) and emergency procedures. Our five hospital loose boxes allow for care after surgery. Associated with the clinic we have five small paddocks for agistment of patients. As well as surgery under general anaesthesia we also offer numerous standing surgical procedures.

Examples of these standing procedures include, dental extraction, sinus surgery, reproductive surgeries and more. Our large float park adjacent to the car park means we can store horse floats for people bringing their horse to Invercargill for surgery.
