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.
