The Equine Medical Center's Intensive Care Unit (ICU) provides 24/7 advanced specialty care with life-support capabilities. Our intensive care team uses state-of-the-art equipment to monitor vital signs and provide oxygen supplementation and ventilator support for delicate neonates.

Within their first days and weeks of life, foals (neonates) are susceptible to a variety of illnesses including birth-associated oxygen deprivationbacterial septicemia, developmental problems, and prematurity. With expert care and treatment, compromised foals can survive, develop, and thrive without lasting effects.

Our board-certified experts and licensed technicians, on-site clinical diagnostic laboratory, specialized early care, and around-the-clock monitoring give your foal the best chance of survival with fewer complications.
