How to Manage a Horse or Barn with Strangles

In this excerpt from the December 2018 episode of Ask the Vet, Dr. Gray and SmartPaker Dan answer a viewer question (actually, two questions) about strangles in horses. They discuss what strangles is and why it’s dangerous, as well as what to do if your horse or a horse at your barn gets diagnosed with the disease.

Dr. Gray also gets to use one of her favorite words, clarifies the proper procedure for how to clean and disinfect around your barn, explains one way to manage multiple barns on a property where a strangles outbreak has occurred and recommends some excellent reading material.
