Customer Question
Bought 4-yr old horse...

Bought 4-yr old horse at auction in TX about 7 weeks ago, Coggins text showed healthy. Went to two weeks quarantine. Had a white nasal discharge and occasional cough when arrived to stable. Gave a round of penicillin, cleared up for 2-3 weeks. Once nose cleared up, he had whitish eye discharge. Gave oral antibiotic, cleared up. This past weekend, he again has white nasal discharge & continual coughing now. Any idea what's wrong here? Would hate to pay for a complete exam just to find out we'll have to send him back to the auction.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Coughing can be worrying. The Expert will know what you should do. What is the horse's name?

Whiskey

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Whiskey?

Not that we know of How much is the consultation?

Sounds like Whiskey has shipping fever pneumonia. Probably got it from another horse at the sale. Will either send back to sale or need exam, culture and different antibiotic than penicillin. Bad situation but not uncommon with horse bought through an auction. Truly rotten situation sorry it happened to you.
Hope this is at least some help.
