Laminitis

Southern Rangitikei Veterinary Services 0 317
When a horse or pony founders, the signs seen are the result of both front hooves being sore (the back hooves are also often involved but because the front legs take for more weight, they show more pain). 

Castration

Southern Rangitikei Veterinary Services 0 402
Castration involves the surgical removal of a male horse's testicles. This operation is performed under anaesthetic (either local anaesthetic while the horse is standing, or general anaesthetic with the horse lying down fully asleep) to avoid any pain for the horse. 

Herpes virus disease

Southern Rangitikei Veterinary Services 0 293
Herpes viruses have the ability to live in a host (animals or humans) for very long time periods without causing disease. Under certain conditions (stress), they emerge from the cell they are in and can be shed into the environment to infect others. This has been shown to occur with EHV1 in horses.
