Had vet out today to check my mare, she has been coughing alot, so hard that she almost falls down, started bad day before yesterday, Yesterday I called the vet to come out and they didn't have time, their so busy. Well today a vet came out not one I usually have, this one didn't know to much about minis and wouldn't listen to us when we tried to explain how shw was yesterday. Today of coarse she is not coughing so much, Of coarse the vet was coming out, He said she has copd, He put her on SMZ-TMP, 3 pills aday, Has anyone used this meds on there minis? I don't like giving her meds when she is preg. He said it won't hurt the foal, just alittle afraid of it. I have to take all the dry hay away from her and the straw, Have to soak her hay in water also can not use straw in her stall, have to use shavings. One thing she doesn't have a temp. Another thing about this vet is I told him I want to clip my 2 preg. mares he told me not to, I said I don't want the babies to choke on the moms hair, he said they won't choke on it. Another thng is I told him that she was put in with the stallion April 15 of last year, he didn't listen he kept saying august that she was put in, never again will I have this vet out, my hubby was so mad he almost exploded.
