The early stages of life are crucially important to your foal’s health. We offer all general medical needs of mare and foal.

Including but not limited to:

  • Pre and post foaling care for the mare

  • Neonatal exams which should be performed within 24 hours of birth to ensure a successful transfer of antibodies has reached the foal and that they are thriving as they should be

  • Field administration of plasma

  • Neonatal ultrasound

  • Minor hernia repair

  • Consultation for corrective trimming and bandaging for limb deformities

  • Entropion treatment
