Jake and Heaves
My vet did an overall exam on Jake and found out his periodic coughing was due to COPD. I have done some research but I have many more questions than answers. Tonight I fed Jake his usual mash wetted down and he may cough once or twice, tonight he was doing a strangling kind of cough. Every mouthful led to some rough coughing so I took he feed away. I put him in a small enclosure and he stopped coughing. When contacted, the vet said I did right. Then I gave him two handfuls of hay amd he chewed those without a problem. Thinking back, he may have been bolting his feed.
Jake does not have a stall for the winter yet and there is a place nearby that has stalls. Is it better for him to be partially stalled? Anything else I should try? Thanks in advance!
