University of Tennessee veterinarians have been working to save Pugsley, one of seven neglected and malnourished horses seized from their owner last week. Pugsley is about 300 pounds underweight, with skin and eye conditions associated with malnutrition and sores from being recumbent too much, said UT veterinarian Karen McCormick. "It's really sad to see a horse like this that's probably never had any kind of normal life," Dr. McCormick said. Clinicians expect the horse to make a complete recovery.
