As soon as the winter season starts to blend into spring, both you and your horse will be spending more time outdoors. With warmer temperatures come fresh grass, blooming flowers, and allergies. Horses are just as susceptible to allergy season as humans, and it’s even common for a horse to have a combination of different allergies. Horse allergies can present through coughing, hives, a runny nose, itchy or red eyes, and even labored breathing. Humans experience similar symptoms, so it’s easy to see how uncomfortable allergies are for your horse.
Go Big Or Go Indoors
Many individuals cannot even step foot outside without taking a menagerie of allergy medicines. And it’s BACK: It’s the dreaded Allergy Season and with it comes itchy eyes and frequent sneezing can severely prevent you from going about your regular day. The same is true for our horses, especially when we expect them to perform at their usual level. To keep your partner feeling their best, we’ve gathered allergy products from pastes to aerosols so you can find the best combination for your horse!

The flexible mask is light-weight, portable, and silent, making it perfect for use at home or on the road. While the mask may look intimidating, many of our customers and employees have seen great success with the nebulizer.
“Last summer my horse, Kestrel, was struggling with the adjustment to the seasons in Tennessee. My vet recommended allergy testing along with a treatment of steroids to help get her body back to normal. As it turns out, Kestrel is allergic to almost everything in this region! It wasn’t until we started using the Flexineb Nebulizer that I truly started to see a difference in her breathing. Now I use my Flexineb every time I exercise Kestrel, and I credit it with her continued health! I recommend the Flexineb for any horse that’s having difficulty with allergies!”Liz Hart, FarmVet Accounting associate
