The Louisiana State Response Team (LSART), Equine Branch, has had its hands full since the flooding in South Louisiana displaced hundreds of horses, not to mention cattle and other farm animals. With concerns about an encephalitis epidemic and the lack of medications and supplies to treat the “waterline” horses, LSART was struggling to provide the needed care for these animals. It is an honor to be able to help LSART with the largest grant award in our short history.
