Ok, so my horses have had the sniffles for a a few days when my Lexington started getting white nasal discharge. I called the vet. Turns out that Lita (my older mare) only has a cold, she was prescribed Bute to help her not feel as crappy and I was told she should be feeling better in about 3 days.
My poor little Lexington was suspected of having pneumonia. Turns out she may have a slight infection, however what is more worrying is that she is anemic. The vet prescribed Bute, uniprim and 2 scoops of nutriquinElite. The vet seems to think that she will improve in about 6 days and be recovered in about 3 weeks although the cough may linger.
So, my question is; going forward is there a supplement that I can give her that might better control her anemia? I was looking at Succeed. But I'm not sure if this is the best supplement for her. As well, the vet mentioned that low red blood cell count is common in younger horses. Not sure how to best take care if this set of issues...?
