    I am looking for advice on how to treat my horse, Sloane's, heaves. This is what I have done over the three years I have owned him. I started out with a solution made by my vet called Heave Relieve that basically did nothing. I asked the feeders to wet down his hay and his grain (he was not...

    *Please read whole post before commenting. I started my two mares on haylage a week ago because they were having respiratory issues and the vet recommended. Got the botulism vaccines, eased them into it, no big deal. Everything is fed from nets/feeders with 1.25"-1" nets and is on a track...

    My 5-acre 'micro ranch' is home to two horses, ages 22 and 25. Both started as my kids' 4H projects. After the kids grew up, the equines were enjoying their retirement, with the only work being an occasional trail ride. But last year, the 22-year-old paint gelding, Jake, starting losing weight...

    I have a 20 y/o APHA gelding with severe COPD/Heaves. I have notice recently he is constantly urinating, and when I say constantly I mean he is constantly dribbling or actually urinating small amounts. I had the vet out and she pulled bloodwork and examined him and everything was normal. His...

    Yesterday, my horse got diagnosed with heaves. The vet told me that I could soak her hay and stuff but is there anything I can do to really solve the problem? Also, the vet had also noticed that she had lost a bit of muscle mass. What can I do to build that back up? I only really noticed my...

    I just found out more about lung worms, that they are not common in horses, or in my area. But earlier someone had mentioned to me COPD symptoms can be caused by lung worms, but that doesn't happen offend unless they live with donkeys.
