MY foal is now 10 days old has developed a cold or something a really thick yellowish discharge is coming out of his nose on both sides I am hoping this is not phneumonia any suggestions?

at 10 days, most likely it is aspiration pneumonitis. This usually occurs after a slow or difficult delivery at around 11 days. But, you can't know (and I certainly wouldn't treat) without having the vet out for a look! Foals can go downhill quickly, so I'd have the vet out soon

I second that. I would get the vet out ASAP! When Ben, our Clyde stallion and Blazer's sire, was a foal, he struggled all one winter with a respiratory infection. There were a couple of times we thought we would lose him. Ben got Tucoprim the whole winter and finally recovered, but it was a long hard winter for us. Don't take any chances - your baby is too valuable. Call out the vet now.

I am sorry but I have never heard of cutting teeth causing a nasal discharge, especially a thick nasal discharge. I would get a second opinion pronto.

I agree with everyone else, get another vet out ASAP. I would really be concerned with the thick discharge especially with the tough foaling Pharaoh had, I would still be worried that he may have gotten fluid into his lungs during the delivery. I have had many foals and never once had ANY kind of nasal discharge while teething.

Did you actually have the vet out or just talked with him on the phone? Foals DON'T have a thick (or any) nasal discharge from teething. Nasal discharge indicates the sinus cavity/lungs is involved..wouldnt have anything to do with teeth.
