Complications of Equine Field Surgery

Oct 25, 2019
APHIS, Equine & Farm

This lecture will discuss various surgical procedures that can be performed "out of the hospital" from a general practitioners perspective with an emphasis on what can go wrong. Once complications are identified and where they can occur in a given procedure then we can develop a protocol to minimize them from occurring. We will discuss what not to do and measures taken if complications do arise.

  • Field Surgical Procedures.
  • Specific problems that occur during procedures.
  • How to avoid complication.
  • Steps taken if complications occur.
