In mid January a client brought multiple mares into the clinic to be foaled out. Within one week three dead foals were delivered. It was confirmed by the lab that it was Rhinopneumonitis. Since that time other mares have aborted at the owners facility and one mare was put down due to neurological Rhinopneumonitis. Two mares have delivered good foals at Hawthorne Animal Hospital since this time, but at this time I will be foaling out mares at stalls at my own home. There has been no horses in this facility since January 1st, only cows and sheep. There are 5 available stalls at this time, so foaling will be limited until we are no longer quarantine by March 15th. We will be moving our breeding facilities to the Rock N Horse Arena where we have some box stalls. Routine ultrasounds that do not require hospitalization can still be performed at Hawthorne Animal Hospital in the breeding barn. I apologize to my loyal clients for any inconvenience this may cause. I hope to be back in full service soon. If you have any questions or concerns please call 208-251-9648. This is unfortunately also occurring in other parts of Idaho and 11 other states at this time.I will continue to provide truthful and transparent updates as it occurs but I strongly encourage all horse be vaccinated with a modified live rhinopnuemonitis vaccine at this time.
