Woodside Equine Clinic is properly equipped to provide care for critically ill patients, including intravenous medications and fluid therapy.
In addition, an isolation facility is available for those patients with potentially infectious and contagious diseases. As these patients are often very ill, the isolation facility allows us to not only protect our recovering hospitalized patients from being exposed to a potentially contagious disease, but also to provide the optimum care for the very ill.
