Medicine and Surgery

This is what veterinarians are known for.  Their ability to diagnose and treat illness and injury through their knowledge of animals sets them far apart from any other profession.   OMVS has X-ray and ultrasound as well as the ability to run bloodwork.  Portable horse stocks are also a valuable tool for farm calls.

The cow above had a small intestinal torsion that cut off blood supply to the twisted bowel.  She was  not eating, kicking at her belly and her colon was empty.  The twisted intestine was dead from lack of oxygen and causing an endotoxemia.  We remove the necrotic bowel and reconnected the still living ends and she made a full recovery!
