Legend, a 6-year-old American Quarter Horse, was showing signs of lethargy, loss of appetite, fever, dark urine, edema and muscle loss in the hindquarters. Soon after noticing a change in her horse, the concerned owner, Karissa Waber, decided to take him to her veterinarian for care. Legend was hospitalized for 8 days, but despite this care, his condition continued to worsen. In only a few days he developed colitis and signs of kidney failure. Nonetheless, Karissa’s veterinarian, Dr. Mem Dailey, was not ready to give up on Legend and started him on steroid treatments.
