    Information from Our Horse Experts

    Animal experts at the Purina Animal Nutrition Center share their knowledge about horses.

    Q
    If a newborn foal loses its mother, what is the most immediate step to take?
    A
    The first and most important step is getting colostrum into newborn foals within the first 2 hours of life. This “first milk” gives foals the antibodies they need to temporarily build up their immune systems to fight disease. After 18 to 24 hours, they can no longer absorb these antibodies. Check with your veterinarian right away to see if foals should receive medication of any kind and if they have achieved proper immunoglobulin levels. After the foal has consumed adequate colostrum, it should be placed on milk replacer for at least 4 to 6 weeks, along with small meals of dry foal feed.
