Agassi was an off-track thoroughbred seized by Animal Control for severe neglect and untreated lameness
He was found to be extremely laminitic and unfortunately, dramatically rotated already
We showered him with love as best we could, while trying all the standard treatments to try to alleviate his pain, halt the inflammation cascade and limit damage
We even tried an experimental infusion therapy still in development, and waited hopefully
Agassi’s foster kept him groomed, fussed over and loved as we hoped for the best
After 12 weeks, our options were over and we could no longer allow Agassi to continue suffering. He was a most special horse and deserved better. Charges were filed against the owner.
