Chronic Asthma / Heaves in Broodmare Treated with TCVM

Chronic Asthma / Heaves in Broodmare Treated with TCVM

By Barbara Allard Ward, DVM, CVA, CVTP

Abstract:  A 13 year old broodmare with chronic asthma/heaves has a deformed foal, the deformity suspected to be secondary to a marked “heave line”.  Treatment with Chinese herbal therapy and other traditional Chinese veterinary medicine modalities was successful in managing the “heaves”.  Subsequent foals were normal. 

 

Signalment:  “One Hot Mama”, 13 year old thoroughbred mare.  Bred March 23 and is in foal.

Owner’s complaint:  Chronic cough.  Occasional thick, yellow nasal discharge.  Cough worse in winter.
