Good Morning, and thanks for your question. My apologies in the amount of time it has taken to get you a response. These are busy days for us Horse Vets!.....
But to your question: sorry to hear about Bucki’s sudden condition; it is worrisome when something new and unexpected comes along. How is Bucki doing now? Are you still seeing the excessive sweating? There are multiple reasons that can cause a horse to sweat without apparent reason, some of which can be concerning while others are not. I’d like to ask you a few questions concerning Bucki if you are still seeking some help.
1): How is Bucki’s overall health, and is he of normal weight?
2): Has he had any problems with the shedding of his winter hair coat this Spring?
3): As far as the pasture that he is on during the day; Is this fresh, lush, green grass? Had he been used to eating this type of grass before he was moved to the new facility?
4): Have you by chance taken his temperature while he is experiencing a sweating episode?
5): Is he on any supplements, such as Vitamins, Minerals, Hoof Support, etc.?
6): How often are you noticing the sweating, and is it occurring during a certain time of day?
7): Does the sweating seem to bother him, or are you noticing any type of behavior changes?
8): Are you riding/exercising him regularly? Are you noticing any signs of lameness?
Thanks for your time, and I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
