Surgical Services

Our surgical services for horses are mainly focused on:

  • Castration and cryptorchid castration (males)
  • Ovariectomy (females)
  • Mass removals
  • Laceration repairs

We can perform equine surgeries at our hospital or at your farm. Regardless, your horse will receive the appropriate monitoring and aftercare from our team.

Emergency Surgery

In addition, we can also connect you with one of our veterinarians if you have a horse requiring emergency surgery. Because we always have at least one doctor available 24/7, your horse should never have to go without care when they need it most. We have multiple hospital vehicles available so we can bring our services to you.


"Huge Thank You to Dr. Entwistle for the work that you did on my horse this afternoon! My gelding was in need of stitches and the vet came out quickly and was good with handling the horse. He did a thorough job cleaning the area and the stitches look really nice and neat. Dr. Entwistle was thorough with explaining everything that he was doing through the process and gave good detail on what I should be expecting in the next few days (aftercare, swelling etc)."
