Senior pony, Gramps, demonstrates the impact of veterinary & rehoming assistance @ #ASPCA
In May 2023, Gramps arrived at the ASPCA Equine Transition and Adoption Center (ETAC) in Oklahoma after his owner had to make the difficult decision to surrender him. At 33 years old, Gramps was losing weight, missing teeth, and had Cushing's disease - common in older equines. Our team carefully examined Gramps, ultimately determining his health could be improved.
