Respiratory Health Management

It is well documented that all stabled horses should be kept on low-dust regimes, the respiratory tract is just not designed to cope with long-term exposure to high levels of dust. More than 50 different species of microorganisms have been identified in stable air and large numbers of these potentially harmful bacteria and tiny particles are breathed in by the stabled horse every day.

So how exactly do you prevent respiratory issues this winter and ensure your horse stays is free from viruses such as Streptococcus Equi (Stragles), E. Coli, Herpesviridae (Equine Herpes), MRSA, Parvovirus and Candida Albicans? See page 31 of our December edition for more advice.
