Elective Surgery

We understand that certain health conditions or concerns may require elective surgery for your horse. Blue Water Equine Hospital offers a variety of elective procedures designed to address specific needs while prioritizing the well-being and comfort of the patient.

Standing Patient Procedures:
Many minor procedures can be performed with the horse in a standing position, minimizing stress and facilitating a smoother recovery process. Our skilled veterinarians are experienced in handling standing surgeries with precision and care.

General Anesthesia Expertise:
For surgical procedures that necessitate general anesthesia, our hospital is fully equipped to ensure the safety and comfort of the patient. Our team employs advanced monitoring techniques to closely observe vital signs throughout the surgery, providing a secure environment for your horse.

Patient Safety is Paramount:
The safety of our equine patients is our top priority. Whether performing standing procedures or surgeries under general anesthesia, our veterinarians and support staff are dedicated to providing a secure and controlled environment.

Limitations on Colic Surgery:
While Blue Water Equine Hospital offers a variety of elective surgeries, it’s important to note that we do not perform colic surgery at our facility. Colic surgery is a specialized procedure that typically requires advanced facilities and resources, and we prioritize the best interests of our patients by referring such cases to specialized equine surgical centers.
