Equine Medicine and Surgery
NEW: Important information regarding: Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS)
Equine services are available at Central Saanich Animal Hospital and through our mobile practice.
We were the only practice offering major surgical services for horses on Vancouver Island for many years and have successfully accomplished over 150 surgical colic procedures over the years. We are still the only equine surgical facility on the South Island.
Watch for our new expanded equine facility. Construction (we hope) will begin this year!
we have adopted these new guidelines for 2008 as our gold standard recommendation for horse owners!
Watch our equine pages on a regular basis for updated information!
Our surgical team is always "on call" for emergency equine colic surgeries. Dr. Shaw is exploring the abdominal cavity while Miguel holds on to the horse's intestines and Michelle monitors anesthesia..
Dr. Shaw performs field equine castration on one of his farm calls.
