Care for cats, dogs & other domestic/companion animals
Care for horses & livestock/farm animals
Veterinarians at Penn Vet’s New Bolton Center have completed important research on botulism in horses, showing that adult horses that maintain the ability to stand on their own have a much better rate of survival in a hospital setting than those that lose the ability to stand.
Dr. Liz Arbittier wasn’t too worried as she approached the stall, even though her trainer had just called to tell her something was wrong with her horse. Ephraim is unique, a former Amish driving horse. He had just spent two days in training at a show-jumping barn, ridden by Olympian Kevin Babington. And she had turned him out the night before, as usual. It couldn’t be that serious, thought Arbittier, a staff veterinarian on New Bolton Center’s Equine Field Service team. But then she opened the stall door.
