RE: [RC] EIPH bleeder??? - Susan E. Garlinghouse, DVM

Fair enough---the (happily) few I've seen had a history of some stinky nasal
discharge, so they probably also had a bacterial component to it.  But, I
did see one that didn't have other symptoms except for intermittent
bleeding, right up to the point he came in gushing blood and bled out within
minutes.  Never had much of a chance to get history on that one.

I would add, though, that you don't always see other symptoms!  I lost a
really lovely mare this way.  She was not >participating in endurance rides
yet, but she was in training, and doing great.  She was full of life, slick,
shiny, and >otherwise the picture of health.  Came out one morning and found
her dead, bled out through the nose, and it was an erosion >in a gutteral
pouch...  So yes, ditto what Susan said--get the horse scoped, and see if
you can find out where the blood is >coming from.
