Hey everyone. I just wanted to warn everyone to be on the lookout for Potomac Horse Fever. I have had two horses that have come down with it; lost one of them. This is something that most people don't think we have to worry about in Tennessee, but it is with us now. I also have a friend that lives about 20 miles from me that has a horse with it and is in very bad condition at UT Vet Hospital. If you notice your horse is acting differently about eating or drinking and is running a fever, it is very important to get them to a good vet and to get them treated for it as soon as they get sick. It can mimic colic, so be careful. Some vets around here will start a horse on antibiotics as soon as they see it if it has a fever because of the severity of the infection and the mortality rate. I know you all love your horses as much as I do mine so I just wanted everyone to beware. Thanks and please spread the word around.
