Neonatology

Expecting a foal? Neonatology is the treatment of newborn foals, while perinatology is the treatment of the near-term mare. Much can go awry during gestation, foaling, and the first few months of life. Placentitis, dystocia (difficult delivery), retained placenta and failure of passive transfer are just a few of the problems that can be encountered.

Why Foundation Equine?

Dr. Kivett's original career plan was theriogenology (the study of reproduction). After spending years working and completing research projects with the reproduction department at NC State, Dr. Lisa entered her internship and fell in love with the study of internal medicine. Her interest in reproduction continued, but the intensive care treatment of foals solidified her desire to complete a residency in internal medicine. Neonatology is arguably the most intensive and challenging of the internal medicine fields, and Dr. Kivett enjoyed the varied challenges brought on with each ICU foal. If you are expecting a foal, having a veterinarian trained in reproduction, delivery and neonatology can give you the confidence you need to proceed without (too much) worry.
