Bleeding from the nose most commonly occurs due to trauma, such as a kick or bang to the head.  In some rarer cases a nosebleed can indicate serious underlying disease (even if the first nosebleed seems very insignificant).

What to do:

  • If the bleed is severe keep the horse calm and quiet and contact your vet immediately.
  • In other cases that have no obvious cause (such as cut inside the nostril), you should contact your vet for further advice without delay.
