EVERY once in awhile, a case comes along that is out of the ordinary. These cases require the veterinary surgeon to pool all resources and think outside of the box.

Recently I was at the end of a busy day when the phone rang and straight away I knew my evening plans were about to change dramatically. The person on the end of the phone sounded quite distressed. They asked if I could come immediately to a stallion that was throwing himself around in the back of a transport lorry on the side of a very busy main road. Quickly I gave them instructions to drive to a nearby yard where it would be safer to examine the horse.
