Horse Health

Symptoms of Equine Influenza include:

  • fever
  • dry coughs
  • increased mucus production and despondency

Viruses can be some of the most deadly horse diseases becuase they can spread quickly through the whole herd.  But unline most other horse diseases, equine influenza usually disapears on it's own after a week or two.  A veterinary consult is advised and the horse should not be ridden while it is sick.
