Know The Symptoms Of Horse Choke

Although choke can look worrying when you first see it, the main thing to do is not to panic. Choke can occur if a chunk of apple or unchewed feed becomes stuck in the oesophagus. What happens is that sometimes the muscles spasm causing the food to be ‘clamped’ in place. The horse may then gag, cough and produce large amounts of nasal discharge and drool. He may also seem confused, alarmed and stop eating suddenly. He also may sweat, begin pawing or just generally act very differently to ‘normal’.

Thankfully, horse choke will not stop your horse from breathing, usually subsiding on its own within minutes. However, if it doesn’t or you’re worried in any way, phone our team immediately.
