Hi friends!
Has anyone had a horse with a lung abscess?
My Friesian (I have Gypsy’s too!) has been fighting his since May numerous antibiotics, steroids, injections, inhaler and nebulizer treatments, it had shrunk and now grew again next step is hyperbaric. Any suggestions or info is greatly appreciated!
He needs to get better!!!!

I had a Mustang with internal abscessing. Fought it for 8 mos and it kept reoccurring.  Used every antibiotic we could find.  Only thing that helped for a while was Chlorenphenicol (probably spelled wrong).  She got better for 3 mos and relapsed for another 3.  She consistently had a fever.  Last straw was when her legs swelled.  Sadly I had to euthanize her.

Thank you!  I’m sorry to hear that you ended up losing her! That’s the hardest part of having them is that we love them like our kids! Thank you for the response !
