Today we have an interview with Dr. Claire Latimer, the veterinary ophthalmologist who treated Selena, the polo pony whose story was recently serialized on this blog, excerpted from Equine ER, the new book from Eclipse Press. Selena was found with devastating injuries at the farm where she was boarded one morning. Although the farm told Selena’s owner that the horse ran through a fence, the owner suspected Selena was actually harmed by a bully horse. Latimer works at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital where Equine ER takes place. 

Q. Was Selena one of the worst cases you’ve seen where the third eyelid had received such damage?
A. Yes … in over 30 years of practicing.
