Live from New Bolton Center: Barbaro's Radiographs

Veterinary Update on Barbaro May 22, 2006

Barbaro rested comfortably Sunday night after having major orthopedic surgery at the George D. Widener Hospital for Large Animals at the University of Pennsylvania’s New Bolton Center. “He’s doing all the things a horse should do, including eating and nickering at the mares near him,” said Chief of Surgery Dean Richardson. “While we are optimistic, we remain cautious about his prognosis and are watching for signs of infection at the surgical site, laminitis and other possible aftereffects of the surgery.”
