Respiratory Conditions Part 3: Non-infectious

October 2018 by Dr Linda Dillenbeck, BVSc (Hons)

This is the third and final part of the series on respiratory conditions of the horse. In March, Part One focused on the airway anatomy and clinical signs of horses with respiratory disease. Last month, Part Two focused on infectious respiratory conditions.

This month, we discuss non-infectious respiratory diseases. This is by no means an exhaustive list of conditions that may affect the horse, but are those that we see most commonly in practice. With some of these non-infectious conditions, the horse may appear normal at rest and is only affected during exercise.
