Thanks to the generous gift of $10,000 from Karen and Mickey Taylor,
the Seattle Slew Spinal Cord Research Fund has been fully
endowed at WSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine.
The fund has been established to continue research into the
diagnosis and treatment of equine spinal cord disease.
Washington State University developed the surgical technique
for treatment of compression of the spinal cord. The College
of Veterinary Medicine is the alma mater of four members of
Seattle Slew’s surgical team. Seattle Slew’s quality of life
was greatly enhanced when he received surgery for the
treatment of spinal cord compression.
