In a recent issue of the Modern Equine Veterinarian (on line March 2019) this technique was reviewed in a step-by-step manner. I was once again struck by how easy it was to do and how “life changing” it can be for a foal. I am also reminded how useful this technique can be for other procedures that foals may have to undergo, such as a bandage change or even plasma administration. Many of us are familiar with this procedure and perhaps have even used it, but a concise review such as this one is always a handy refresher for us during each foaling season. I have provided a link to this review and encourage everyone to take a look at it.
