Neonatology + Pediatrics

At Equine Planet we provide neonatal and pediatric care from early pregnancy to delivery through the neonatal period (first 10 days of life) to the weaning phase. The first hours of a newborn foal are of course always critical. In addition, all foals and young animals have special requirements in terms of their accommodation, nutrition, pediatric preventive medicine and treatments that differ from those of adult horses. We are here to help with each specific case, and the foal is probably the one requiring the most sensitive care.   Common diseases that we are frequently called to treat are:
  • Abdominal pain (due to retained meconium)
  • Angular limb deformities
  • Assisted deliveries
  • Diarrhea
  • Failure of passive immunity transfer
  • Infectious diseases
  • Placentitis (in utero infection during gestation)
  • Septic arthritis
  • Ulcers
  • Umbilical problems
  Sign up to our foal check up visit and you will receive all the information necessary to provide the best care for your foal and to give you peace of mind.
