GENERAL ANESTHESIA

AT LOWER HOUSE EQUINE CLINIC

  • A general anesthetic is used in some procedures that cannot be carried out standing. The horse is anaesthetized and is therefore unconscious so unaware of pain.
  • There are a number of stages in the anesthetic process which we will try and explain in the following text.
  • A thorough check-up is carried out to detect anything that could increase the risk of anesthesia. The anesthetic regime may then be modified to suit that horse or, if necessary, the operation postponed until the horse is fit enough to be anaesthetised. In addition, the horse’s temperament can be assessed, as temperament can often be the most important factor affecting how the horse recovers.
