Runny nose

My 8 year old paint has a nasty green/yellow stuff coming out his nose. I'm worried, but I think maybe it could be caused from the saw dust? We just built them a barn.............

Green means infection. Time for the vet.

He will probably need antibiotics. They are usually powder in packets that you put in their grain once a day or so for like 10 days

Also take the temperature. You can get a digital rectal thermometer for under $5 at the drug store (usually in the baby aisle). A priceless piece of information to have when calling your vet. Also, know how to accurately take a heart and respiration rate.
