Aceś Coughing and breathing problem

My horse has been having problems coughing and his breathing. When i went out to feed us he was coughing bad, i dont know if it was the cold so i put a blanket on him. Ive been told use coughing supplements but i wanna know yalls opinion.

Hes also not himself lately, when he breaths in, he breathes out hard and his nostrils flair up. Im worried about him.

Get your vet out. Respiratory issues aren't something to mess around with. Its something that might require serious management changes and lifetime medication or be as simple as antibiotics. It's possible he's got a respiratory infection, or he has heaves. Get it looked at asap.

You need the vet now...tomorrow.
There is a lot of pollen, allergens and mold in the air right now...any of these could be affecting his breathing.
I will put this out there as a possibility because of the way you described Ace's breathing...
Heaves, COPD....
What you describe is very disconcerting.
If my guess is right, the horse needs medication immediately started...not in a week or a month but now.
The longer the animal coughs, has difficulty exhaling...struggles to breathe the more scarring is happening to the lung lining.
Get your vet and get a exam...
You don't even need a lot of tests done....
A vet can hear, can evaluate much by looking and watching the animal and by when he asks you some questions you answer honestly and as accurately as possible.
Time is of the essence for the horse....
Best of luck and please let us know what your vet finds...
I hope it is just a simple irritant, but only a exam will tell you that.
Do not guess, self-medicate and waste time...get the vet out ASAP, please.

Aceś Health

Ace has been doing better, we called the vet and they gave him a little shot and ease the pain.. But the vet told me if he gets worse to call him.. but hes doing a little better. I forgot to take another picture but here is one that was when i started to notice something off. But hes going good

I didn't hear what happened to Mr. Ace, but I'm glad he's doing better! =)

No diet, no hoof. No hoof, no horse. No horse is not an option!

A vet usually gives a reason they suspect when they give injections...
Did he give you a diagnosis? A reason for the breathing issue?

What was the injection given?
What drug?
And was any medication left that you are to administer to the horse to give longer relief that a injection shall have?
