Frequently Asked Questions

Do all Shank's Tables support a horse in dorsal recumbency (on its back) and lateral recumbency (on its side)?

Yes, all Shank's Tables can support a horse in either position by using various extensions that can be attached to the table. The Floor Model Surgery Table comes standard with the extensions necessary to support a horse in lateral only; to support a horse in dorsal position the optional Leg Poles and Padded Dorsal Props would need to be purchased. The Dorsal/Lateral Eqine Table comes standard with the attachments necessary for basic positioning in either dorsal or lateral recumbency.
