So, as I said last week I treated for a week with the penicillan for the unilateral nasal discharge in our mare. Given my 10 years as a vet tech I felt qualified to make the decision to treat conservatively before vetting ourselves into the poorhouse. Well, I gave it my week I was willing to go, and still snots.
Today we trailered up to the vet. He thinks she has an infected gutteral pouch. Needs to be scoped, but he doesn't have a scope, so we referred out to another local vet. We are doing 2 weeks of uniprim, then the scope, hopefully it's just rhe pouch, we have it flushed and we are good.
Some crossed fingers for good luck would be appreciated.
On the up note, I had a coggins pulled while she was there, they checked her for a chip and she indeed had one. Hoping we can track her history a bit- but vet says it's doubtful. I would like to have her papers just for my own sake.
