So, after a couple weeks of no sleep, colics, multiple emergency vet calls, a scoping, and my impending nervous breakdown, it is now known that Star does NOT have ulcers. (This is relevant to the subject at hand)
The vets have said that Star's main issue is her COPD. The medication that was prescribed was Flovent... only problem is that it costs $390 for 10 days supply. Now, I'll do anything for that mare, but (under vet's orders) been buying and giving her Gastroguard for the past couple years; and that stuff wasn't cheap!
There's another medication called Qvar that the pharmacist recommended, and it's a bit cheaper... any advice?
Also, we're considering a hay steamer so that there's less dust... again, any thoughts?
