The Horse: Warning Signs in Neonatal Foals

No one wants to think about what could go wrong with newborn foals, but a breeder is better off aware and prepared to recognize the possibilities. An article on The Horse.com from 2007 describes several potential issues to watch out for.
The title is Neonatal Nuances, and it covers:

  • Constipation
  • Failure of Passive Transfer
  • Septicemia
  • Umbilical Infection
  • Ruptured Bladder
  • Dummy Foal
  • Neonatal Isoerythrolysis
  • Angular Limb Deformities
  • Premature Foal
