    Just wanted to update on heaves and my mare. 3 weeks after shewas standing in the field, unable to breath we went on a small ride that turned iinto a very strenuous hill ride and lasted about 4 hours ( I got lost)
    My mare who 3 weeks ago I was going to have euthanised..did wonderful. Not even 1 cough.
    The ONLY thing I am doing differently right now, after her round of dex and nebulizer treatments is I have her out 24/7, pulled her off round bales, and give her regular square baled hay..not even soaked anymore.
    I swear..the albuterol nebulizer saved herl ife. I couldnt pay 200 bucks for the equinemask so made one outof a milk jug.
    This posrt is to give hope. You can manage heaves!

    Good to hear! Keep in mind, from experience, it's all about management. Damage to the lungs has been done, its irreversible, but manageable.
