Standing Abdominal surgery is minimally-invasive, less stressful and provides a rapid return to work and play
Saginaw Valley Equine Clinic has the equipment and expertise to provide minimally-invasive laparoscopic procedures. Our process promotes a rapid return to function and a more cosmetic outcome. The state-of-the-art Stryker endoscopy (camera) equipment in our clinic allows us to perform these procedures on a standing horse, which eliminates the anesthetic risk. A constant rate infusion sedative minimizes stress for the horse and keeps the animal quiet during the procedure.
