Just recently, my whole herd has gotten over strangles. None died, thank God, it wasn't that serious type. It has been quarantined with all of our horses having shots/vaccines and such. We found out early that it was the type most susceptible to penicillin and smart us, it was the first thing we gave to them! So the horses only had mild cases, except for our new horse and her stablemate. We believe the strangles was contracted at our local barn which we used over the winter. We found out that some others who have gone to the barn have gotten it too so we quickly spread the word and after that, there was no more cases.
So what are your guy's experiences with strangles? Please do share, I want some one to talk to about this.
