At Donnington Grove we have a fully equipped equine operating theatre and offer the highest standard of surgical care. We also take referrals from neighbouring practices, which make up about 30% of our caseload. We have two diploma qualified surgeons and all horses are under the care of experienced veterinary anaesthetists during the procedure, followed by intensive aftercare in our clinic.

Our head surgeon, Bruce Bladon, is a recognised specialist in equine surgery by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and the European Board of Veterinary Specialists.
