    Hey, my three year old got a cold after all of the other horses about three months ago. For the first month I couldn't even lunge her without her coughing up a lung. There was also suggestions that she was irritated by the haying? She had lots of mucus coming up and also out of her nose. She got...

    Hello there everyone! I was wondering if anybody has had any experiences with the Cough Free supplement? Or any others like Air Power or AniHist H? My horse has always had a little cough, but this year (like within the last couple weeks) it has just morphed. I can't lope him when I ride as...

    So here's another question: A horse where I board and I ride sometimes often coughs when ridden. He is 10 years old and has been doing this for years according to his owner. It's at the beginning of the ride once he trots or canters. Since I get to ride him I tried doing really slow warm-ups...

    My boy, Bo, a 20 yr old QH gelding, recently started coughing on Tuesday. I was just grooming him and hanging out and he had like 3 episodes of coughing. Dry cough, no runny nose. The BO added I believe apple cider vinegar? to him and 3 other horses' feeds (I think that's what it was, but don't...

    I have a 26 year old horse, believe he has asthma, he has had a bad cough for a while. I have had the vet look at him and he prescribed some steroid meds, but they didn't seem to help, I've tried all kinds of cough stuff and just ordered some more called equi-tussin. My horse used to be a timed...

    So recently (as in, over the course of the past 2-3 days) my one mare has begun to exhibit a cough. She doesn't seem to appear very lethargic, have already ruled out choke, no runny nose or discharge, eating normal, and she is currently up to date on all vaccines. She is housed in close...

    My dad's horse has developed a cough and we don't know what is causing it. He has no discharge coming from his nose, his breathing doesn't sound wheezy, and the coughing doesn't last long. We have noticed that most of his coughing begins when he is eating hay or when we are out on the trails...

    Hi All- I need your help and I apologize in advance if this is a naive question but I want to make sure I am handling my horse's feeding properly since I'm new to this situation. My horse coughs when she is on alfalfa due to the dust and my vet recommended that I switch her over to straight...

    I've been looking at horses to buy recently and I went and looked at one yesterday that I really liked. He is a 14 y/o BLM mustang, broke to ride (I even tried him out) and sound. I liked his personality but there's something that concerns me and keeps me from buying him. He has a cough. The...
