Take a walk through the UC Davis Toxic Plant garden and learn to identify various plants that can be toxic to your horse as well as the clinical horse your horse might exhibit if it happens to get into something toxic.

Distal Limb Anatomy and Dissection

See what your horse's leg looks like underneath the skin!  In this lab, you'll get to visualize the complex architecture of tendons, ligaments, and joints that make up your horse's lower leg and learn about the common problems that can occur in these structures to cause lameness.
