I have a friend with a Quarter horse who is allergic to gnats. Every summer the horse’s hair falls out and the skin gets very itchy and almost looks like an elephant’s skin. Any suggestions I can give the owner?
Allergies are one of the biggest problems I see.
There is an article on allergies and a video too in the library section of our web site. also several audios from Equine Affare, etc. where I have spoken on such.
I would start with both our Bug Check and our Aller Check supplements. These have helped hundreds and probably pushing now a thousand with such. Bug Check is not 100% effective but it does really really help. For gnats generally more needs to be given than usual however. generally a scoop a day is enough but don’t hesitate to use more if needed. each environmental situation is just different .Also be sure to listen to the audio on what to feed your horse. EVERYTHING for a horses starts in the gut and commercial feeds are very often related. thanks for asking!
