Behind the Scenes of Anesthesia Mastery: A Quack-tastic Tale

In October, an 11-year-old Quarter horse mare was presented to Moore Equine after sustaining a full-thickness laceration and comminuted fracture to her lateral splint bone. It was decided to take her to surgery to debride the wound and remove splint bone fragments.

With the Mallard, the team was able to support her through anesthesia and the mare recovered without a hitch. Regardless, whether it is an elective procedure or emergency colic surgery, all patients are able to receive top-tier ventilation support and gold-standard anesthesia with a Mallard.
