Like any athlete, breathing is an essential component to your horse’s performance.
From a simple cough during initial exercise to respiratory distress, Manning Equine is here to get to the bottom of the issue and recommend treatments to help your horse perform at its best.
Endoscopic exams continue to provide effective diagnosis of a wide range of respiratory issues.
Whether scoping guttural pouches or a trachea, the endoscope gives the veterinarian an eye inside the horse.
A bronochoalveolar lavage, or BAL, is a procedure performed under standing sedation where a sterile liquid is introduced into the horse’s lungs, then extracted to assess the lungs at the cellular level.
The samples are sent to respiratory specialists for further identification and treatment recommendations.
