    We moved your thread here to Horse Care and copied some info from your first post to the thread title to hopefully capture the eye of folks with relevant experience.

    Best wishes!

    Wow, I work in the MICU, so we see that very rarely in human patients, but I've never heard about it in horses.

    Was the stallion competing/intended to compete, or intended for breeding only? He may end up being somewhat limited if he was in a high-performance endeavor, but assuming he avoids complications, should be able to breed.

    Many years ago we had a young 3 year old horse with pneumonia, not sure exactly the type, but it was a pretty bad case. The horse was very sick and in the hospital for a while. He came home and and the owner thought he was fine until he had a secondary case of pneumonia a couple months later. He was on drugs for about 6 -8 months. I was surprised that he was on the antibiotics for so long with no complications.

    He ended up living to a ripe old age and died a few years ago in his twenties. Hope all goes well for you and your boy.

    How's he doing? I hope he is at a vet school clinic.

    Did they figure out if it is allergic or related to a medication allergy or to parasites? Is he on steroids to treat it? I have never seen eosinophilic pneumonia in a horse. Sometimes I feel our horses have had every illness known to man over the last 35 years. That is one that we fortunately have missed.
