anyone had a horse with laryngitis?

Choco has been pretty sick, vet came out sunday night, as choco had been dribbling, couldnt eat, we thought choke, but vet scoped him, and all that was there was 1 strand of hay that he had just tried eating, it started at 6am when I noticed him laying down and drooling, we watched him all day as we thought it was choke,vet came out around 6.30pm and dx laryngitis as the symptoms were the same at another place the vet was called out to, and the racing stables were all showing symptoms to, they gave him penacillen injections for 10 days or so, and a benamine (sp) injection painkiller, we also give him bute every morning and night, which is a pain cos he dribbles it back out, he's dropped weight which he drops fairly quickley as he's a tb,

These video's are from 2 days ago, he is abit better as he is able to atleast eat his hay, slowley, he trys to eat his barley and maxi soy, but most of it falls out of his mouth to around his bowl

This video is his usual whinny for food as he gets sooo excited for food and scoffs it, which in past has caused him colic

Has anyone experienced a horse with laryngitus

Well if choke has been ruled out could it be a tooth issue......broken molar?

She said teeth are fine, he's only just had his teeth done 2 months ago,close to 3 months

Vet diagnosed laryngitis, as he has alcers on the larics, he was coughing, gaging when trying to swallow, dribbling, as he couldnt swallow the saliva, she said the mucas is clean, she said it can last up to 10 days

Is he quarantined from the other horses to prevent spreading?

Was to late to quarantine, vet said virus can be in system 48 hrs prior showing any symptoms, all horses are in a paddock of their own, so they don't share water or anything
