SCEC has recently acquired a sling to suspend horses that are unable to stand on their own accord. The “Andersen” sling was purchased with the generous donation of a client who lost his long time friend to a disease that progressed to total paralysis. Through our mission to provide the highest quality horse care possible to our practice area we have installed a sling in our intensive care unit and trained our dedicated crew to its use. Diseases that may benefit from support in a sling include but are not limited to West Nile Virus, Equine Protozoal Myelitis, Head & Neck injuries, and fractures to name a few. The sling could also be used in a rescue type situation as well.
