My jaw hit the ground, could my mare be so sick because of lung worms? She was stabled with a donkey for five months of training just before I got her. Spice had a cough within four months of me getting her, than after a year developed heave like symptoms but not responding to heave medications.
While I'm waiting to hear back from my vet (she works for two vet office's so sometimes I have to wait to hear back in a non emergency). I thought I would ask, does anyone else think it is possible that lung worms cause difficult and labored breathing? What dewormers work on lung worms?
I'll admit I am not one to always remember to worm on a tight routine. She's not around other horses, or animals here, no animals were housed where she is. Any other information is great, feel free to ask questions, I probably forgot to add important information.
