During the foaling season, our intensive care unit is on high alert. At our hospital, critically ill foals receive intensive care to the highest standard. They are kept under 24-hour supervision and care. External warming devices, foal rugs, colostrum and foal milk are of course available at any time.
Abnormal Posture/Limb Deformities
In many cases, congenital limb deformities “grow right”. Other abnormal postures can be treated conservatively with the aid of a farrier. In some cases, however, surgical intervention is necessary in order to correct limb deformities and to offer the foal a chance of a pain-free life and a possible career as a sport horse.
