Liver diseases

Although Ragwort poisoning remains a concern as a cause of liver damage and liver failure in horses it remains uncommon. Particular blood tests for evidence of liver injury and damage will be required.

If necessary the horse’s liver can be scanned and liver biopsy specimens harvested under ultrasound guidance.
