Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

I had a horse that had AHS (Dikkop) is it normal for him to have lots of fluid gathering in chest, front legs and neck area and what is cause of this?

Yes, this a typical - the virus attacks the cell walls and breaks down the cell and then releases the fluid from the cells.
