Foaling and Emergency Neonatal Care
Our veterinarians will work with you and your broodmare throughout a foal’s gestation to provide fetal care, veterinary and nutritional support to the mare, and to help support a healthy pregnancy.
We offer options for hospital observation so trained team members will be onsite at the time of your foal’s birth to observe and assist with the foaling process. We will evaluate the health of both the foal and the mare before, during, and after birth. We recommend testing foals for the presence of antibodies (passive transfer) following birth and initial nursing to ensure the antibodies present in their mother’s milk are providing adequate protection from infection. We also recommend a basic physical exam and bloodwork on all newborn foals within 24 hours of birth so that any abnormalities can be identified and addressed early on.
