In this Ask the Vet video, Dr. Gray and SmartPaker Dan discuss “that California thing,” pigeon fever in horses. Dr. Gray explains the signs of pigeon fever, how it spreads, treatments, why you need a proper diagnosis, and why it has nothing to do with pigeons.

SmartPak strongly encourages you to consult your veterinarian regarding specific questions about your horse's health. This information is not intended to diagnose or treat any disease, and is purely educational.
