I just found out more about lung worms, that they are not common in horses, or in my area. But earlier someone had mentioned to me COPD symptoms can be caused by lung worms, but that doesn't happen offend unless they live with donkeys.
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.
