At Perth Equine Hospital we have a full equine surgical suite, with advanced anaesthetic monitoring equipment, and a padded air conditioned induction and recovery box. With our quiet gantry we can ensure your horse has a smooth, quick, and safe transition from the induction box to the surgical suite, then back to the recovery box, where they can comfortably wake up in peace.
With our full surgical facilities we are able to perform a wide range of routine and emergency surgical procedures including, but not limited to:
- Arthroscopies – key hole joint surgeries for bone chip removals, flush a septic joint
- Upper airway – tie back, tie forward, vocal cord resection
- Colic Surgeries
- Wound repair
- Fracture repairs
- Foal surgeries – umbilical hernia repairs, check ligiment, transphyseal bridging.
- Routine castrations and cryptorchidectomy (undescended testicle)
- Eye surgeries
Our surgical procedures are performed by our equine surgeon Dr Josie Hardwick. Dr Josie joined our team in 2014 after completing a rigorous 3 year training program at Randwick Equine Centre in Sydney.
