Equine Allergies

Horses can develop allergies, just like humans. Allergies in the horse have been related to weed, grass and tree pollens; along with dust mites, foods and molds contained in damp hay or straw.

 

Equine allergies can manifest with respiratory or dermatological symptoms, caused by exposure to allergens through direct contact, food ingestion or inhalation of airborne pollens. Allergic disease can severely impair the performance of competition horses and causes great discomfort and disability in leisure horses and ponies.

 

The most challenging part of any allergy management program is identifying the specific allergens that cause a horse to suffer. An accurate diagnosis requires a detailed patient history, an assessment of the horse’s environmental surroundings, and a full clinical examination.
