Pneumonia in Horses

The Wednesday ***** Christmas Eve my barn owner called to tell me she felt I needed to call a vet out for Duke. He wasn't himself at all and had a high temperature. So I took him to the vet and come to find out he had pneumonia. The vet gave him several different shots then gave me tucoprin and bite to administer to him. I stopped the byte after a few days since he seemed much better, but I have continued the tucoprin for almost 9 days. It has been two days without the tucoprin. He was put in a stall for about five days. And man was he ready to go back outside with his buddies! Anyways, my question is this.. How can I tell when Duke is fully over the pneumonia? I have read that when they start acting normal again and the symptoms from the beginning go away. As soon as I let Duke out he went crazy like any horse who had been coped up would do. So that's a sign he is feeling better,right? When could I start working with duke again? I had surgery a couple of weeks ago so I can't ride him at the moment but I can do groundwork with him. I don't want to rush him back into exercise if he needs time to recover. What do y'all think?


Thanks in advance for any advice given
