Foal Medicine

Care of the new born foal is critical

Within the first 6 hours of life it is critical that:

  • the mare has passed the foetal membranes (Cleansed)
  • the foal has sucked
  • the foal has passed the muconeum (The first motion /faeces)

If there is any doubt about the foal it is vital you contact us as soon as possible. 

This is essential in the prevention of joint ills, pneumonia and septicaemia – to name but a few .
