Throat problems in horses

Common Questions and Answers about Throat problems in horses


Avatar m tn My throat problem has been increasing over the past few years. Currently, my throat is super sensative to fragrances such as scented candles, perfumes and cleaning detergents, paint and stains. My throat tightens up and feels sore. It takes a couple of days before the severe reaction passes. However, even without exposure to the fragrances my throat is irritated as soon as I talk for even short periods. I sleep fine and experience no difficulty while sleeping.
Avatar n tn I agree its good to weigh your horses feed but a genaric feed calculater may not be a cure all for everyone. When my horses are not in high work they get a low protien high fiber diet.Lotsa different horses on alot of diferent feed routines. Roughage,roughfage!!!! If a horse needs alittle extra a high fat low protien grain is great. Adding alittle oil adds fat too. Rarely an older horse or injured horse will get weightbuilder suppliment to help out w/ weight.
11125296 tn?1421386502 I can't seem to get any sleep at night. It's extremely hard to get comfortable. If I move a certain way to fast I feel pain at the bottom of my belly. My legs cramps really bad and i get really bad charlie horses (it's so painful) during the night hours which causes me to toss and turn trying to find a comfortable position but nothing is working. It's so bad that my fiancé don't even want to sleep with me.
Avatar n tn For the past maybe two years I have had charlie horses occuring in my neck. Or maybe its in my throat because when a charlie horse comes about, if I swallow, it tightens it more. The on-set of the charlie horse I have noticed has varied. I had one once after coughing up some water I had swallowed while swimming. Another time I was playing with my dog on my bed (laying on my back) and extended my head back and a charlie horse started.
Avatar f tn Does anybody know why I get Charlie horses in my calf when I'm sleeping? Its only happened a few times but boy does it hurt!
Avatar f tn Thank you for writing. In my opiniion, eyes are nothing to mess with on one's own without the advice of a veterinarian. Your own vet would be the best as a a hands-on examination where he could pull the lid back if necessary, etc. Also, have you tried phoning your vet? Best of luck and keep us posted.
Avatar n tn I have lost interest in my horses ,which is not like me at all. I have always lived to spend time my horses . It takes everything in me to make myself go out of my home any more . I get frustrated easily ,lose my temper over much of nothing . When I get angry I end up breaking something . I too have problems with my balance now as well .Fell and crushed my wrist a year ago . After reading Your post I realize my husband and I have many of the same symptoms .
Avatar n tn Since January I have had problems swallowing. In the mornings about an hour after getting up I will begin to get a sour/burning sensation in the back of my throat. I will take a Prilosec (as I have been directed by my doctor) and eat breakfast - symptoms will subside. Throughout the day I will get a tightening feeling in my throat and either chewing gum/drinking/eating will resolve this feeling for a while. I can also eat a couple antacids and the symptoms will subside.
Avatar f tn im giving her extra food and she is rugged in field with hayage but it is still dropping off her.does any one have any adivse in what i could do.
Avatar n tn It can involve one or both eyes. The affected eye, is the right eye in your horses case. An eye with a strabismus will show excess sclera (white of the eye), and the pupil will appear to be slanted abnormally. A horse with this condition will have difficulty seeing out of the affected eye which will result in stumbling, bumping into things on the affected side, and increased nervousness (spooking easily).
Avatar f tn I have owned and rode horses all my life. I am having difficulty coping with not being able to ride because ppl told me I cant. Is it seriously that big a deal to ride? I don't want to hurt my baby, but it's literally the only thing I have done for myself and can't deal with giving it up for so long...
Avatar m tn I get bad reactions to animals like cats mice horses raccoons and bunnies and such. I get really ichy eyes and throat and start sneezing nonstop. I even start feeling feberish. Not super hot just a little warm. Im just wondering so my allergies like that effect my little man inside.
Avatar m tn Simply mixing metamucil with oil then forcing this down the horses throat with a tube. This should help him pass anything he has in his system. This also works well if they've ingested too much sand, etc. and you are worried about colic. Hope it all works out for you and your friend!
Avatar m tn After having "hay fever" as a child I had a long period of time with no allergic respond to any thing. Try to recall the time when I first noticed the allergies again it was about the time we got a new dog, nevertheless before having the dog I was around horses every day and I didn't have any allergies. After about 7 years I did an allergy test which stated I am allergic to dogs and horses as well (along with many others..
Avatar f tn 10 months after that I had my gallbladder removed. Then started having like charlie horses mid to upper right side of stomach. Then started getting cyst on my liver and pancreas. Now three years later. I have 5 to 9 bowel movements a day. Any where from solid to diarehea. I will also get stomach pain lower right then gets really bad upper right that will go across to the left. Is worse when sitting down. As far as the charlie horses that is usually triggered by sneezing coughing bending.
Avatar f tn Horses can lose weight for a variety of reasons. It is concerning that your horses are losing weight rapidly, and even dying. About food.. Have you weighed it out? The amount of food you feed one horse in a day should be about 2.5 percent of the horses' body weight (the weight you want teh horse to be). For a 1200 pound horse , that would be about 8.2kg (18.0lbs) of forage (hay) per day, and 5.5kg (12.0lbs) of concentrates(grain) per day. You should aways feed more hay than grain .
Avatar n tn I have 4 horses, 2 in which I have had for 10 years, 1 I got 2 years ago and 1 I got last winter. The 2 that I had had for 10 years have been easy keepers, the one I got 2 years ago is at the point of obesity and the one I recently got is skinny, skinny... Which is my point, I have had horses for 30 years, I am at a complete loss... Brought this little filly home and all my horses are thin and sickly... I have tried everything...
Avatar f tn I woke up today feeling sharp pain in my chest/lung area and up through my throat. I am having a lot of trouble breathing in and feel like its an infection somewhere but I can't pinpoint where because it hurts throughout my chest and into my throat. It doesn't hurt when I cough or when I'm in an upright sitting position but it hurts a lot when I lay down probably because of gravity. I also get very dizzy like when I went up the stairs I almost blacked out.
Avatar f tn Fatigue that is so extreme, BP that falls as low as 70/35 and causes me to pass out, recurring pancreatitis, headaches, permanent swollen glands in throat and axilla, itchy skin that rashes up at will, and a beautiful Mediterranean sun tan without the holiday. Nausea when eating, loss of hearing in one ear and blurry vision also add to the pot pourri of symptoms. I have had every specialty look at specific areas except Endocrinologist and Rheumatologist. ANA negative, Ca 19.
1365668 tn?1277946866 I know that jumping and running is definitely not OK while pregnant. A baby is protected by the fluid and the pubic bone until about the 12-14th week and then it is just the fluid. I would think that you would not want to push the luck while pregnant. I am sure that some women can go and ride horses (like your mom) and have no problems but it isn't a guarantee that nothing will happen with your beanie. I am sure most doctor's will advise against it too.
Avatar n tn I explain this is not possible, and she starts crying. I do not know how to handle this. In preschool she almost never separates from horses and zebras, small animals she holds in her hands. She goes to two preschools. One teacher told me that she gets really upset if someone tries to distract her from her horses. I should mention she is bilingual and she does not speak fluent English.
Avatar f tn On Jan 16 i had a severe panic attack. I have been in treatment for depression since i had a Hysterectomy 3 years ago. 2 weeks after my panic/anxiety attack i have had severe muscle twitching through the whole body BP has been elevated. Most of the time my legs feel to weak to even hold me up from a sitting position. is this all in my head but even my family has noticed weightloss the bruising and felt my twitches.
