It is important to provide immune support to horses of less than 5 years of age, groups of weanling foals or yearlings forequine respiratory health. Young horses do not have fully developed immune systems and are at greater risk for a condition that they may contract from older horses. That may lead to inflammation of the mucosa of the head and throat.
Horses may then show signs of depression and fever, and slight swelling between the mandibles. The lymph nodes may become hard and painful, and may obstruct breathing. The lymph node may also rupture, releasing thick pus. Lymph node abscess may burst in the throat and the pus will be inhaled into the lung (a serious complication that requires emergency veterinary care).
The natural way
The best way to keep horses healthy is to provide a clean environment. Many items in the stable may need constant cleaning with disinfectant – such as buckets, feed bags and crates, walls, doors, or the pasture environment (fences and water troughs). Water buckets or feed containers should be cleaned daily or disinfected if a horse shows symptoms. Bedding should then be burned to prevent spreading by flies. Staff working with horses should change their coveralls and boots regularly, and wash their arms and hands carefully with strong soap. Farms with large populations and movement of horses, particularly of older foals and yearlings, will want all incoming horses to be isolated for 2 to 3 weeks and veterinary inspections performed before introducing them to the rest of the stable.
