Equine skin conditions are often difficult to diagnose and frustrating to treat, with causes ranging from fungus to allergens to who knows what.
Once the integrity of a horse’s skin is compromised, it is not only the site of the irritation that’s a problem, but the general health of the horse, since the immune barrier has been breached.
Skin diseases in horses are prevalent throughout the year, although some may be seasonal. They may be due to infectious agents (e.g. bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites) or environmental irritants.
By knowing what may be triggering a horse’s skin condition, you can determine the best treatment option to help alleviate discomfort and bring the horse back to optimal health.
Dermal Support works systemically to allow the natural defence mechanisms to help manage the source of the problem, it is safe to use in conjunction with most medications prescribed by your veterinarian.
