well my horse is fine when in the pasture not doing much, I have lunged him for a very short time (10min) and thats when I noticed the heavy breathing. I took him out for a 1 hr. trail ride little trotting and the rest walking, I had to hold him back from trotting, he likes to go, but when we got back home he was breathing heavy again and very little whizzing, not real bad.Vet told me to start out with 4cc a day of dex wait 4 days and if he seems ok decrease it just a little every couple of days intil he is stable, understand. He did say not to give him 4cc one day and 2 cc the next day messing around with his meds like that are not good, but I read on here that is what alot of people do, is that the right way? I live in Fl and the vet says is a bad time of yr. for his asthma/heaves.
