Sedation and heart murmer?
Does anyone know if it is safe or not to sedate a horse with a low grade heart murmer? My horse is getting his teeth done tomorrow. He is extremely parrot mouthed and requires a lot of tuneup work, so usually we sedate him to take the edge off. We just recently diagnosed the heart murmer last fall, so I'm guessing we've been doing it all along with no problems. I just want to be safe if anyone has some input.
You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
