How to tell if you have a sick foal?
Breeding horses is a long and expensive process so it’s vital that you recognise if you have a sick foal. In this Hey Doc tutorial Dr Leigh will discuss what a normal foal looks like and how to recognise if you have a sick foal. The quicker you can recognise the health problems of a foal the quicker you can have a vet instigate treatment for a better outcome.
