Conditions encountered include recurrent airway obstruction/heaves, chronic fibrosing interstitial pneumonia (ideopathic pulmonary fibrosis), bronchopneumonia, pulmonary neoplasia, abscess, oedema and haemorrhage, and hydatidosis. While these conditions are managed as in the equine patient, the often-delayed presentation makes the prognosis for recovery guarded in many cases.
