Help with heaves
I haven't been on in a while but I am in need of idea, opinions, etc from you guys!
My boy Twist has heaves. He has for years but it has never been a Problem until this summer. It got so bad he even had to stay in the ICU one night, they even thought it might have been pulmonary edema! I have since moved him outdoors, he is getting a small amount of grass hay, alfalfa pellets, some soaked alfalfa cubes, tri hist ( antihistamine), and some senior feed.
I want to get back to riding (we have never done lots of hard/strenuous riding) but I want to try and get back into taking lessons.
Does anyone else have thoughts/ideas on what else I can do for him as far as changing his feed or supplements. I would soak his hay but 1) the barn he is boarded it I doubt will do that for him and would be too costly if they did and 2) winter is coming so it will freeze.
I am so stressed out by this. I have allergies and asthma so I know how awful it can feel. I have had to miss days of work to take care of him, he gets upset when it is hard to breathe, I hate it!
So if you guys have help for me I would be grateful!
