Foal recovery

British veterinarian Nuala Summerfield, M.R.C.V.S., a Thouron scholar at the New Bolton Center, administers an injection to "Barbie," a five-day-old foal who suffered from a lack of oxygen during birth, as Jon Palmer, V.M.D., associate professor of medicine in the School of Veterinary Medicine, looks on. Thanks to the supportive care available at Penn's large-animal hospital, Barbie has an 85 percent chance of a full recovery.
