The Coughing Horse
Huge thanks to everyone who came out last night to attend The Coughing Horse evening. Thanks also to Emma and Meredith from Boehringer Ingeheim who generously sponsored the evening, we hope you all enjoyed it and found it useful.In summary of the evenings discussions and talks, we heard that there are a wide variety of diseases that present as a coughing horse. Most commonly we would expect a cough to arise from Equine Asthma Syndrome (EAS)- which can present with both summer and winter trigger factors. This syndrome encompasses the old terminology for COPD, RAO and SPAOPD, and is clearer as the disease is akin to human form of asthma rather than the human form of COPD.
We had some great feedback following the evening and were thrilled to see so many friendly faces. Should you have any feedback from this evening or ideas for future events, we'd love to hear them as the best events are those that people really want to attend! Keep an eye out on our events page for upcoming dates for your diary.
