Left sided Recurrent Laryngeal Neuropathy (RLN) or paralysis of one side of the larynx (voice box) is a common condition affecting performance horses. Horses typically present with severe exercise intolerance and make a loud noise (commonly known as ‘roaring’) when working.
With the dry months we have experienced, we have seen some horses with colic caused by sand impaction.
Meconium is the first faeces passed by a foal and is recognisable by its dark color and firm consistency. The meconium consists mainly of secretions and dead cells from the foal’s intestinal tract, accumulated during fetal development.
