Popular pet care site Animal Rescue SiteÂ recently had a posting from a good Samaritan who had rescued a horse diagnosed with Wry Nose Syndrome and given it much needed care and shelter. The site apparently has zealous fans who love to visit the site daily to catch up the latest in animal rescue. There is a mechanism on the site whereby the visitors can click on certain buttons as a way of showing support to the animal rescue efforts.
The good Samaritan posted the below photo of the horse suffering from Wry Nose Syndrome on the site and because a lot of patrons were not familiar with this condition they were not sure what exactly was the issue with the foal.
What is Wry Nose Syndrome.
Wry Nose Syndrome is a condition mostly observed and diagnosed in horses (especially foals). Wry nose is a deflection of the rostral maxilla.
It is most apparent in species with long faces such as horses. It is a congenital irregularity.
I have included a photo of a horse skull below to show what a wry nose syndrome looks like.
Animal Rescue Site is doing a great job in bring together animal lovers and keeping them apprised of their latest efforts.
