Ok it is Sat eveing and I was at the doctors last night with my daughter she has a chest and ear infection!!! I am now waiting to go to on call for a 8 30pm appointment as I have it too. I just know it is a chest infection and I am not leaving without a course of antibiotics or I will end up on preds again!
Anyway, back to the topic. I have just left the stables creasing myself. I have a pony with asthma (well it is actually COPD) It is common in stables horses. We have bad times when she ends up on ventapulmin (a bit like ventalin in a powder you put in feed), However, another girl on the yard has had a vet out today as ventapulmin was not even stopping hers from coughing. Poor little man is now on an inhaler!!!!!! I have heard this mentioned by vets before, if mine had not responded to steroids last time she was bad and ventapulmin, this would have been our next step. I have finally found out today what they are like! They are just like ours. She has had to go to the chemist for a spacer, when asked what size, she had to exp[lain it was for her horse and then had to habd in a prescription from the vet for a salbutomol inhaler and she has to spray it up ponyios nostril;s twice a day!!!!
Well now I know, that I hopw it does not come to that with our pony, she would go mental if I did that to her!
This post is a load of nonsense really but I just thoght it may make you chuckle!!!!
