My horse Magners was just turning 3 when he got grass sickness last month. He spent 2 days in the vet hospital and then had to be put down.

I've never heard of grass sickness. Are you maybe talking about botulism?
|myhorsesonador ||06-01-2011 07:08 PM |
what is grass sickness? Is it like colic?

Colic can be a symptom of grass sickness
Horse that get grass sickness have a 95% death rate

It's apparently caused by botulinum toxins, so it's a type of botulism.
I'm so very sorry. I had a friend lose a horse to botulism. It's a hard death, and very traumatic for the animal as well as the owner.
The fatality rate is almost 100%, and there's no cure.

it is horrible and lots of people dont know about it. It is more common in horses aged 2-7, dry weather, between April and July.
