When your horse needs surgery, you need to find a practice that can administer both gentle and effective treatment to your beloved companion. From routine procedures to more advanced operations, your horse may need to undergo surgery for any number of reasons. 

Our staff is trained to give your equine the care and compassion they need to not only successfully make it through the operation but to lead a healthier and happier life when they return from our facilities.

What to Expect During Surgery at Cochrane Animal Hospital

The modern amenities and pristine conditions of our surgical rooms enable our staff to function at peak capacity. We do everything in our power to streamline your experience so that all lab work and pre-surgical exams are completed in a timely manner. Our resources not only help our staff feel supported, they can also help your horse feel more comfortable in an unfamiliar place. We recommend a follow-up with each of our clients so we can catch small problems before they turn into larger ones.

You can expect our staff's complete attention when your horse is in the surgical room. Veterinary surgery often requires multiple professionals working together, which is why we make sure your equine's temperature, IV fluids, and anesthesia are constantly monitored and adjusted by a trained technician. Our team works together to communicate any potential anomalies that may compromise the efficacy of the surgery. We've found this strategy to be the best possible way to ensure favorable outcomes.

Before Surgery

Before the surgery, we use the conclusions from the pre-surgery exam and the accompanying lab work to determine which methods to use during the operation. After the surgery, we design pain management strategies specific to your horse's size, breed, and condition.

After Surgery

It's Cochrane Animal Hospital’s goal to give you all the advice you need to properly care for your equine from the moment they come home from surgery. Taking an all-around approach to surgical care is the best path to achieving better horse health, and we want our clients to feel as empowered as we do to help.
