When the LSU Vet School came back to us to ask for more help, we were surprised to learn how many horses were in shelters, being cared for by the Equine Health and the Shelter Medicine vets.  Dr. McConnico was seeing 10-12 new horses every month and the shelters trying to care for them simply didn’t have the resources to provide everything these malnourished/neglected/abused horses needed.   We were happy to provide vaccines and dewormers so that other money could be freed up for medications and treatments.
