UF Neonatal Equine Unit: Helping Sick Foals

(From my archives: Originally aired on Florida File on WUFT-TV in 1990)


The University of Florida Large Animal Hospital Neonatal Foal Intensive Care Unit was one of the first facilities dedicated to neonatal medicine for foals. Veterinarians and highly trained staff care for the most sensitive and complicated equine cases at the facility. They also offer classes for volunteers who can help provide care for the foals. Donna Green-Townsend reports on the kind of work the volunteers provide and why they love to do it. This story originally aired on the statewide IFAS television program Florida File in 1990.
