Foaling brings new and unique problems. Our surgery and internal medicine teams work together to provide the best treatment approach for foals, and for their new moms. Our surgery team is always ready to assist with foaling emergencies like dystocias (foaling problems), since prompt intervention has such a powerful effect on prognosis.
We also perform many orthopedic and soft-tissue surgeries on young foals. Our surgical and ICU staff stands at-the-ready to handle foal-hood emergencies like limb injuries, ruptured bladder, colic and infections. We also perform many elective procedures. Such surgeries include orthopedic procedures to correct crooked legs, bucked knees, club foot and other problems. We also schedule soft-tissue surgeries like hernia repair and cryptorchid surgeries.
