My mare is out on loan and vet has been called and waiting on results i wasnt there so i dont know what vet said but im just stressing a bit while waiting on the loaner to get back to me

she has a snotty nose but just from the left size no swollen glands or anything like that and snot dosent smell but it is yellow. She has a temperature shes been eating fine but its been going on for about 2 weeks.
Im really stressed that its strangles theres been no cases of it at the stables shes been at and dosent travel to shows but im still stressed. Any ideas what it could be i can update when i hear more off her loaner

If it's one-sided only I'd say a tooth or sinus infection. Vet should be able to investigate, but sometimes the two are both at play - one causing a problem with the other!

Doesn't sound like strangles to me, but I'm not a vet.

One of ours has just had a tooth out, and that's how she was. She is an old pony, and turns out the tooth is deformed and probably has been all her life.
Antibiotics and Bute and she seems ok now
