Equine asthma is the new terminology for what horse owners for ages have called “Heaves,” COPD, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, “Broken Wind,” and others. Now researchers recognize that what is occurring in horses is similar to what is occurring in humans. Therefore, it is now called Equine Asthma, and I agree.
ALSO – – Many are now realizing that equine asthma, like human asthma, is secondary to metabolic syndrome in horses (EMS) and humans (HMS). Please look at nutrition and metabolic syndrome topics for more information on EMS.
