My mare is 156 days pregnant. We are at a boarding facility that just recently had an outbreak of Pigeon Fever. Is there anything I can do to prevent my mare from getting it? If she does get it what will happen to the foal? Any advice will be appreciated.
Anyways, the best thing you can do is fly protection. Horses get pigeon fever from infected flies biting them. Smear 'Swat' all over them, put fly sheets on, fly spray, etc... thats really all you can do.
