Castration

Castration

Castration (or gelding) can be performed standing or under anaesthetic, either at your premises or in our theatre.

We like to ensure that colts are up to date with tetanus vaccination if possible and tend to leave anti-inflammatories and antibiotics as part of the after care. Ideally horses should be turned out in a small clean paddock with limited flies after the operation so often Spring or Autumn are preferable. Our vets would be very happy to char to you about the procedure and the pros and cons of the different methods.
