Surgery keeps Stella in the winning ring!

 Stella the Warmblood mare developed signs of colic which were not responsive to standard medical treatment.  Stella was promptly referred to South Eastern Equine Hospital for further assessment. A rectal examination indicated a large colon displacement that could only be rectified by surgery. Dr Robyn Charman, Dr Lianne Wright, Dr Kate Thompson and Senior Veterinary nurse Debbie Webb spent 3 hours in surgery with Stella to return her large colon to its normal position. Following a period of intensive care, Stella stayed in hospital for a further 7 days before returning to her home on the Mornington Peninsula. Stella has recovered well and is now ready to continue her stellar dressage career!
