When your horse has to have equine surgery and go into the hospital, what does that entail? I had never given it much thought as most of our equine medical issues have been resolved at the barn and not a hospital. I had found a tumor on my walking horse mare, Margorita by Jose' Jose', and Dr. Stone felt after examination that she needed surgery so we had our first experience a couple of years ago. See our article "Your horse has a tumor". It never dawned on me the lengths they had to take to do surgery on a horse and I was impressed by the care and consideration these photos gave me. Look at the safety precautions and care with which they placed her.
I had not considered that they would put the horse on a ventilator as they would the rider in surgery and will have to say that I remember when having my partial knee replacement they were careful about positioning that particular leg, but Dr. Stone has soft bumpers to ensure she doesn't get injured or bruised in any way which really impressed me. Monica was quick to give me updates as well and send me photos so I would feel much better about the experience.
Dr. Stone and his team are fantastic and come highly recommended by Genesis Tennessee Walking Horse farm in Slaughters Kentucky.
