Ask the Vet LIVE: Common Upper-Respiratory Disorders and Treatments

The recording of’s Ask the Vet LIVE event on the horse’s upper respiratory tract from April 19, 2012, is now available below.

Is your horse a noisy and uncomfortable breather? Does he struggle to breathe when you’re riding? Is his performance suffering because of it?

Attendees of’s FREE Ask the Vet Live audio and chat event, "Common Upper-Respiratory Disorders and Treatments," presented by Sweet PDZ, got the answers to these questions and much more on April 19. 

The presenters answered listener questions on topics such as the structures and function of the upper airway, roaring (laryngeal hemiplegia), dorsal displacement of the soft palate, epiglottic entrapment, and much more.
