Our

Facilities

If you’re ever in need of surgical services at Countryside Veterinary Services, we can provide you with everything your horse needs to heal properly. We are equipped with a sterile, fully-functioning operating room that allows us to perform whatever operation your horse may need. Once your horse is finished with surgery, we also have a padded recovery stall where they will be monitored by our highly trained, compassionate team. On the off chance your horse needs a surgery that we are not equipped to provide, we will work with our well-established associations to ensure that your horse gets the care it needs.

Equine Surgical Procedure
Arthroscopic

Surgery

A horse’s joints get a lot of use, regardless of how they spend their day-to-day. As a result, it’s not uncommon for horses to need joint surgery at some point during their career. Luckily, if you live in Covington or the surrounding areas, our team at Countryside Veterinary Services can perform arthroscopic surgery to help your horse’s joints heal to be as good as new. If you have questions, reach out to our team and we would be more than happy to answer them!
