A horse that is to undergo routine surgery is admitted either the day before or the same day by appointment.
If admission is on the same day as surgery, it is kindly requested to arrive by 8.30 am with the horse unharnessed and fasting from hay and grain from the night before.

Upon discharge, a discharge letter will be provided with the programme to be followed.
