surgeryOur purpose-built surgery is always ready for emergency or elective procedures, including colic, cesarean, joint arthroscopy and airway tieback. We have the only specialist horse and large animal surgeon in the ACT and surrounds.

Anaesthesia and a safe recovery are always monitored by an experienced veterinarian. Our anaesthetic and monitoring equipment are up-to-date and well-maintained. Monitoring includes the advanced methods of arterial blood pressure, ECG of the heart and oxygenation saturation.
