Customer Question
My new born horse's...

My new born horse's hips don't work right. She is hoping around on 3 legs.... she was normal when first born, but something has happened to affect her leg. The local vet thought infection,

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

And she was given antibiotics but it hasn't seemed to work

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the horse's name and age?

Bree is her name and she's 33 days old

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Bree?

She was born with everything working and normal, we aren't sure what happened
