Yesterday, my horse got diagnosed with heaves. The vet told me that I could soak her hay and stuff but is there anything I can do to really solve the problem? Also, the vet had also noticed that she had lost a bit of muscle mass. What can I do to build that back up? I only really noticed my horse coughing when I would ride her. But then when the vet came later yesterday afternoon she started coughing even while she was being examined. However, even though our vet is almost positive it is heaves, she did take a blood sample to rule out any infection. Just wondering what I can do to help with heaves and to help build her muscle mass back up.
