First Aid for Horses

CHOKE

Choke can result from the ingestion of any type of feed, but is more common with pelleted feeds. It is also more common in horses which eat very fast and gulp their feed with little or no chewing.

This feed gets stuck in the esophagus and begins to swell which prevents the horse from eating. This is usually very distressful to the horse initially until the horse becomes used to it.

The owner usually notices it when saliva and feed material begin to back up and come out the horse's mouth and nostril. This obstruction needs to be cleared as soon as possible to minimize future damage.
