Spring's Breeze

Spring's Breeze

Just like doctors and vets are similar, humans and animals can get similar illnesses. You know how asthma affects people. Next, you’ll learn about diseases similar to asthma that can affect a horse’s respiratory system.

Use the following links to learn about heaves, Inflammatory Airway Disease (IAD) and other equine respiratory diseases, causes, triggers and treatments.



Work in groups to discuss, design and create a device that could be used to treat a horse with heaves.

Be prepared to present your group’s model.
Now that you know more about the causes, conditions and treatments of heaves, you may move on to your next task.

The project described was supported by a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) from the Office of Research Infrastructure Programs (ORIP), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
