Question Eiph?!?!?

What are your thoughts on EIPH (exercise induced pulmonary haemmorhage)?

Have you ever owned a horse with this problem?

Did you continue to run this horse?

What did you use to help this horse with this problem? (supplements)


Trying to learn anything and everything about this.

I think it is more like most people do not realize their horses have it. 80% running horses have it but only like 9% bleed (as in a nose bleed) my vet said most people never know their horse has the problem unless they are scoped and in order to catch it you have to scope it right after their work out.
Thanks anyways :)

Saw this post has been idle a while.
Over the summer, one of my barrel horses became a big handful when it was time to run. Thought maybe it was arena sour, tried new pad, less grain, etc. Never saw any sign of bleeding. Then about a month ago, it was mentioned that he might be bleeding. It was not until then that it dawned on me that after a run, he would sneeze 4 or 5 time and rarely cough.
After talking with the vet, we decided to try a dose of Lasix at the next barrel race since it would not be possible for her to be there to scope. He did not sneeze or cough.
I have done a lot of google searches on EIPH supplements and found MANY opinions. Like feed and other supplements, everyone has their opinions and some might work for one horse but not the next.

I actually found a feed thrum that my mare likes and it seems to help...I have not seen anymore blood so I am guessing its helping but I really just try not to work her really hard and once I am done with a run I try to cool her of quick and let her have her head.....vet told me if she has a nose bleed its very important that it drain because in very bad untreated cases they can basically drown in their own blood but its their natural instinct to pit their heads down to let it drain if and when they do...if they have the option. So when I tie her up I leave it loose and always give her a good while before we load up and head out. My mare has never been scopes and she never coughed or sneezed the only hint that she was a bleeder is whenever I would work her really hard she would get a small nose bleed. I find it crazy that people on here don't know anything about this when my vet said 90% of horses have it although only about 10% actually have nose bleeds....and its very comanly know to happen in race horse....quarter and tbs.
