- A Vet Fees Insurance Case Study
When Michaela Waddington found her two-year-old Arab, Diesel, tangled in an electric fence wire she feared the worse. A call to get out the vet and months of treatment followed...
How it happened:
Diesel, a pure-bred Arab, was a two-year-old when it happened, he's now three. We think another horse ran him into the fence and while trying to escape he got tangled in the electric fence and ripped a deep hole in his hock and had further lacerations to his legs.
"in the first few weeks, he had three visits from the vet to treat the wounds, a trip to the equine hospital and another two vet visits, the last one being four months since the injury!"
The accident happened in March 2021, in the first few weeks he had three visits from the vet to treat the wounds, a trip to the equine hospital and another two vet visits, the last one being four months since the injury! Thankfully there has been no damage to the joint itself, it's a purely cosmetic injury which I was relieved to hear with him being so young. It's taken four months for the swelling to go down and he has been left with lots of scars from the multiple lacerations but all is ok otherwise and he is sound.
