[RC] Guttural pouch erosion - Jean

I lost my Draft in December because of guttural pouch issues. His started with abscessed teeth that couldn’t be pulled so he was treated with massive doses of antibiotics. He ended up with chronic sinus problems ie: infections with green stinking discharge. In turn he started with small nose bleeds. I had him scoped and his pouch was inflamed and covered with distended veins. These were bursting and causing his nosebleeds. The vet didn’t want to scope into the pouch for fear that she would set off a major bleed. Due to this and his other health problems I chose to put him down. Just another bit of information for you.    Jean
