  • Nose Bleeds

    Epistaxis (bleeding from the nose)

    • Most commonly due to trauma.
    • Can be life threatening if due to an infection in the guttural pouch (the horses’ eustachian tube).
    • If large volumes or repeated bleeds occur then the horse must be seen. Investigation is easiest the day after a bleed.
    • If profuse, immediate attention is required.
