nose bleeds

Lately my standardbred (28 years old) has been getting nose bleeds after exercise.

Initially I though it could be a case of EIPH (exercise induced pulmonary haemorrhage) but im not a vet and could be wrong. Considering the work is not intense im a little hesitant to just put it down to EIPH.

Its only after exercise but because he is 28 he usually only gets about 10-15 minutes of walk and trot work. He is getting very fat so the exercise is essential as im worried about him foundering but the nose bleeds worry me more.

That's really freaky... I've only heard of TB's getting nose bleeds after long races. Or is that bleeding lungs? Eh, sorry I can't suggest anything :(

Yes, bleeding lungs is EIPH. The blood comes out of the nose but the source is the lungs as capillaries burst during intense exercise. That I can understand but what he gets is hardly intense lol its very tame really which is what confuses me

I would call a vet. Regular nose bleeds aren't OK, IMO.

The vet will be called but my regular vet is away until after the holidays. I would call another vet if its considered urgent but im trying to wait until the first week in january as I don't really trust nor like most of the equine vets in my area.

I realise it is something I can't fix myself I was more looking for opinions for now on what it might be

I wish they had a VetMD.
You know like WebMD how you can type in the symptoms and they tell you what it could be.
I should do that.

EIPH was the only thing I could think of

Yeah that would be awesome :)

EIPH is the only thing that makes sense due to the small amount of blood and the fact that the bleed comes only from one nostril. In every other way he is fine though

One of my friends horse's used to always bleed from the nose after exercise...
They just put her out to retirement and she lives a happy life.

No allergens around this time of year - are there? Is the weather dryer than normal?

You should check out Equiwinner patches. I used them on my non-sweating horse but they're supposed to be good for bleeding too.
