I neeed help identifying my horse's symptoms!
Last Saturday my horse got back from his first equestrian team, which lasted a few days. Around Monday he started acting ill
some of his symptoms are:
- Nasal and eye Discharge ( clear)
He is still eating and drinking regularly, does not have a fever ( I have been taking his temperature everyday) and is not dehydrated. I think he may have Equine Influenza, but I'm not sure. Does anyone know what these symptoms could indicate or have experience with symptoms simliar?
Thank you so much!
Im not quiet sure but could it be the early sings of strangles?
I thought about that, but supposedly after about 4 days of being infected the horse is supposed to have swollen lymph nodes. But his are not swollen and it's been a week.
Hmmmm, is he sore anywhere?
Or could it be that he is "Tying up"?
Also he is spooking a lot more than usual
Tying up is something that happens suddenly, not over the course of a week. I'm thinking cold of some sort, or upper respitory infection. I would call a vet and let them know his symptoms, and see what they say.
Your horse needs to see a vet.
Symptoms for a week need veterinary care. If you can afford Equestrian Team, you can afford a vet.
Agree... he needs a vet and appropriate meds
