My colt when he was 6 months old got strangles, and I was sooo worried about him. I could not separate him from the herd at that time, because I had no where to put him. I caught it in its first stages, and right away I called my vet and she was out that evening, and she gave me antibiotics for 2 weeks. He was a mess, nasty snotty nose and had some difficulty breathing because of mucus build up his temp at that time was 105. I cleaned and treated him everyday twice a day (or more if needed). I was surprised to see him come through in the two weeks. None of the rest of the herd contracted it. They have been exposed, but no one has shown any signs of anything since his out break. I'll tell ya what, it was a long two weeks.....
Best of luck to you!
