Equine Surgery in Dublin

At Green’s Creek Veterinary Hospital, our dedicated, experienced veterinarians are able to provide many surgical procedures for our equine patients on farm calls. As with any surgery, we make your animal’s comfort and safety our top priority. Most surgeries will require general anesthesia, and we take every precaution necessary to minimize any risk for your horse.

Safety in Every Surgery

We perform surgeries on-site at your stable. When we arrive, we’ll perform a full clinical examination to ensure your horse’s health and get a better understanding of the condition. Then we’ll administer the anesthetic through an IV catheter and may also provide your horse with antibiotics to prevent infection. Throughout the procedure, your horse is closely monitored by our trained technicians.

Equine Surgeries We Perform

Our capabilities for equine surgery include the following surgeries:

  • Castrations
  • Hernia repairs

Recovery After Surgery

After the surgery, we’ll monitor your horse to ensure they come out of anesthesia properly. During this time, we’ll also discuss their recovery plan and provide you with any pain medications or antibiotics as needed.
