WHAT TO DO

EQUUS - - Eq Hands On -

• Do not squirt wa­ter into the horse’s mouth. You will greatly in­crease the risk that he will de­velop as­pi­ra­tion pneu­mo­nia, a se­ri­ous lung in­fec­tion, should he in­hale any of the liq­uid into his lungs.

• Do not ad­min­is­ter

med­i­ca­tions or home reme­dies. Noth­ing you can do will help, and you may make the sit­u­a­tion much worse if you cause per­ma­nent dam­age to the lin­ing of the esoph­a­gus. Even rub­bing the horse’s neck may cause in­jury.
