I've got 3 horses and 3 donkeys. They're all coughing. Anyone know what would cause this or how to cure it. I dewormed them the other day so maybe that might help. Any suggestions?

Hey! Probably more cattle than horse people on these boards. I personally check hoarse board every day or to. We breed/raise registered Texas Longhorns, Peruvian Paso and Tennessee Walking Horses. Now for my 2 cents worth...

If horse is coughing (and not due to choking), then might be flu-related problem. If it persists for more than couple of days, would definitely call the Vet. Vet bills are a lot cheaper than losing a quality equine. Also, where are you located? Temperature extremes there? Do your horses all have complete set of current vaccinations, including West Nile Virus?

Later, Bill

What about the dry matter that you are feeding? Is the hay dusty or moldy? Check your grain to make sure that it also isn't moldy. I'm certain that you probably have already done that, but just want to cover all the bases.
