History

A 1-year-old 195-kg (429-lb) Quarter Horse colt, procured for resale purposes, was evaluated at the Auburn University Large Animal Teaching Hospital because of continuous bilateral, mucopurulent nasal discharge accompanied by respiratory noise of 6 months' duration. The respiratory noise had worsened during the week prior to the evaluation. The colt had been treated intermittently with systemic broad-spectrum antimicrobials without a positive response.

Clinical and Gross Findings

At the evaluation, the colt was bright, alert, and responsive; heart rate, respiratory rate, and rectal temperature were within reference limits. Bilateral, mucopurulent, malodorous nasal discharge was present with dyspnea and respiratory noise.
