Heaves or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (Shortness of breath)
Laboured breathing, coughing, often there is a "pit" behind the curvature of the ribs. Often due to overwork, especially in untrained horses. Box rest! Gentle exercise in the meadow. Give easily digestible food. "Vorarlberg Pferdepulver" is a great help! Give 2 tablespoons at each meal. Healing takes at least 6 weeks.
