Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA), also known as Swamp Fever, is an infectious disease of horses, donkeys, and mules caused by a virus. Horses infected with the EIA virus carry it for life. Most infected horses show no symptoms, but they remain infectious, endangering the health of other horses.

Allergies are simply an imbalance of the immune system where your horse’s immune system perceives a threat from something harmless that he has come into regular contact with. Instead of eliminating microorganisms, the body suddenly starts attacking its own tissues, resulting in an overreaction to normal, everyday things such as grass, tree pollens, shavings, dust, molds, hay and straw, environmental pollutants, drugs, fly spray, or a new grooming product or shampoo.

To sustain optimal hoof health, the horse’s feet must be regularly trimmed and maintained. Without proper care, the feet can develop conditions such as too much toe or too much heel, and the horse can suffer discomfort or even infection, resulting in costly treatment. When this happens, it is essential to provide the support and maintenance necessary to return the hooves to a healthy state.
