Horse Hospital

At Israel’s main equine hospital, the animals can be wild patients, creating some unique challenges for the veterinarians treating them. “They are not good patients,” said Dr. Gal Kelmer, who heads the large animal department at Hebrew University’s Koret School of Veterinary Medicine. “I get a lot of satisfaction when things work.” Veterinarians at the hospital operate on about two dozen horses a month, most of them pleasure and show horses.
