RE: Re: [RC] [RC] EIPH bleeder??? - heidi

Oh, Heidi, I am soo sorry to hear about your mare.  Maybe Sue can answer
this question about the erosion of the gutteral pouch.  Is this caused by
stomach ulcers.  Or are we talking the same thing with a scientific name?

This happened a dozen or so years ago--just wanted to point out that they are 
not always symptomatic.

No, this doesn't have to do with stomach ulcers--the gutteral pouches are up in 
the back of the throat, and hence communicate with the nasal passages, so blood 
from them comes out the nose.
