Has anyone had any experience of treatment for this - namely guttural pouch flushing? I have a pony suffering from secondary infection following an upper respiratory tract problem which she seemed to clear in a few days. She is bright, lively and her normal self apart from an occasional smelly discharge from one nostril. She coughs up a small quantity of semi solid pus every now and again and x-rays show at least one pouch is full of solid matter. Intenet info on this is encouraging, but the vet is sucking his teeth an awful lot. He has referred us to Leahurst and I'm dreading the worst as this condition is supposed to be notoriously bad to clear up. An added problem is she's only 12 hands and 26 years old - although you'd never believe it. She's extremely precious to me and any advice from experience you might have had which could help me would be greatly appreciated.
