Post Surgical Care


Post-Surgical Care

Post-operative care for the equine athlete is an integral part of recovery, and often the key to a successful long-term outcome. At Burke Equine, we communicate directly with the referring surgical center to develop a specific recovery plan for each horse. From wound care to colic surgery or castration, we are able to offer the same level of care provided by the best surgery centers.
