Neonatal Care

Neonatal Exam and IgG Testing


Elm Creek Equine recommends a post-foaling exam for all mares and foals. We check that they have received adequate colostrum by measuring IgG, and do a full physical exam on the mare and foal. Don't forget to save the mare's placenta for us to examine. 

Plasma and Fluid Therapy


Plasma therapy and intravenous fluids can be life-saving interventions. We provide various options for plasma therapy in foals including in-house harvested plasma and commercially produced plasma.

Foal Surgery: Referral Available


Umbilical, scrotal, and body wall hernia repair. Referral available to DACVS practitioners for more advanced cases such as neonatal colic surgery.
