    So sorry to hear he is so terribly ill. Hope he recovers quickly and gets back to normal in a short while.

    PLEASE keep us all posted!!! You know we are all praying for him, and worrying about him.....

    So the vet doesn't know how he got it exactly? Does anyone know how common is pneumonia in horses?

    Beau was on a "pneumonia watch" after his severe choke and tubing 6 weeks ago, and it was a scary time...waiting.

    I don't know much about equine pneumonia....sorry for the questions.

    We will all be waiting to hear good news!!

    Beau, thanks I feel better knowing that:)
    He started his antibiotics yesterday

    Yesterday he was so out if he just was latingbin his stall when not turned out, I bundled him up in a thicker blanket under his new on with the insulated hood. He looks misaerable.

    Wensday seems so close for him to be that much better, so I'm worried more. But worrying won't do any good but I can't help it

    I don't know how exactly they get it. But in Beau's case, I am sure after a choke that they were concerned that he had taken fluid into his lungs. Which could cause pneumonia.

    I know making sure your horses get time to really run or work hard and breathe deeply is very beneficial to their lungs, and can help with pneumonia prevention.
