Hi everyone! Sorry for skipping the introduction I will hit that forum in a day or two!
We just received 2 new horses last night one of which arrived here with thick green nasal discharge pouring from both nostrils in clumps accompanied by a dry cough.
They were traveling in a trailer for 1.5 days, I have contacted the breeders since I didn't think that an infection would come on so rapidly if something was airborne in the trailer. They assured me he was perfectly healthy when he left and the vet certificate indicated the same. They suggested a traveling sickness???????
We know that when we met their horse they had approximately 6 dry coughing horse in stalls (he was one of them) with the rest out to pasture. The vet was there this day and we assumed this condition would have been corrected in 6 months. Is it possible for something like this to last 6 months???
I have the vets coming out ASAP! and will post the outcome. Just wondering if anyone here had this horrible experience.
Thanks A Bunch for your thoughts and suggestions!
