Donating a horse with any disease to a veterinary college helps

like pituitary tumors, etc. If there is a medication trial that

an animal, they would probably ask your permission in signing the

for it.

Is this pretty much true for most vet colleges? That is my biggest
worry (not that Star is my horse) - that something unpleasant or
painful would be done to her prior to her death or euthanisia.
