I HAVE A 3 YO OLD FILLY WHO IS VERY ITCHY…MIDLINE, TAIL, AND NECK ARE THE WORSE. SHE GETS SO BAD SHE BITES HERSELF…WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP HER. IT SEEMS TO BE AN ALLERGIC REACTION TO A BUG BITE THAT STARTS THE WHOLE CRAZINESS. I'VE TRIED MANY PRODUCTS, SPRAYS FOR BUGS, OINTMENTS FOR AFFECTED AREAS, JUST CAN'T SEEM TO GET IT IN CONTROL.. ANY SUGGESTION FOR NATURAL PRODUCTS.
Plenty. I see them every day. Lots of money spent on useless testing .. "allergic to EVERYTHING" you possibly can't keep a horse away from. like flies….Steroids only make matters worse by "confusing" the immune system and covering symptoms
Absolutely pay no attention to what they are "allergic" too testing-wise. These are not the issue…. the immune system and all the junk from vaccinations, past chemicals, and especially commercial processed feeds are the problem.
We have tremendous, though not instantaneous, success with allergies. All allergies start in the gut. The skin as hives, itch etc is just trying to "discharge" the "junk". So…
First, Get this horse off all commercial feed and follow the "Feed For Success" feeding program at www.WhatToFeedYourHorse.com to the "T". This is also explained in the magazine at www.DrDanMag.com. There is an article on allergies in the magazine and also a video in the library section of our website. (www.DrDanLibrary.com)
Oats they are the best as discussed on the feed website mentioned. They along with the supplements suggested will help and are critical.The supplements to add to the oats discussed on the site are Just Add Oats and our good and extremely important source of healthy fatty acids Weight Check oil. Offer Red Cal free choice at all times too.
Now also Add for additional immune support the Aller Check supplement. May not need this supplement forever but critical to start. Also add the Health Check to help get rid of all the "junk" in the system.Stop all other supplements and feed.The answer to the flies is simple.. our Bug Check.. it is not 100% but awesome.. use whatever amount it takes for your farm situation fly wise. any amount is only healthy so use what it takes..
The above has helped hundreds and hundreds. If anything will it will. Also check out www.askdrdan.com and search for allergies
Thanks for asking! Enjoy your new horse!
