Nostrilvet forms a Natural Barrier to stop indoor & outdoor allergies before they start. Helping with equine hayfever, head shaking, heaves & dust allergies.

HEAD SHAKING
Headshaking in horses is currently poorly understood and there are a variety of causes including sensitivity to light, behavioural issues or pain from an injury. Symptoms include sneezing, snorting, up and down or side to side shaking of the head and rubbing of the nose on the stable door or trees.

If your horse exhibits seasonal head shaking, i.e. during the pollen months (April through to September in the Northern Hemisphere) then the more than likely cause is airborne allergies. Protecting your horse from the airborne allergens should remove the cause and stop the head shaking.

 


EQUINE HAYFEVER
A common condition seen in both young and old horses is Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis. This allergy can affect up to 30% of people in many countries. The prevalence in horses is largely unknown although it appears to be a very common problem. Airborne allergens affecting horses include pollen, dust mite and mould spores from hay or straw.

Symptoms in horses tend to appear more flu like rather than the traditional human signs of sneezing, itchy eyes and runny nose. Lungs can become inflamed and a horse suffering from allergies can become vulnerable to virus and bacterial infections. Many horse owners believe their horse is suffering from a cold rather than allergies as common symptoms are eye discharge, coughing, and the horse seems to tire very quickly when exercising.

The problem can be reduced by keeping the stable as dust free as possible, soaking the hay in water before feeding, storing the hay away from the horses stable and allowing as much fresh air into the stable as possible. However, there is the problem of airborne pollen and the fact is, it is impossible to keep a horse’s stable completely dust free. Therefore it is important to find other ways to protect your horse from the airborne allergens.

HEAVES
Heaves, officially known as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a very common cause of chronic lung disease in horses. Heaves is basically pulmonary inflammation in response to airborne dust and mould particles.

Symptoms include coughing, exercise intolerance and breathing problems, including severe asthma in some cases. We have not conducted clinical trials on NostrilVet in the area of heaves to date but it makes sense that protecting the horse from airborne allergens should reduce the suffering associated with heaves.

COUGHING
Coughing in horses is commonly caused by the inhalation of  pollen and stable dust. As horses only breathe through their nose a large quantity of airborne allergens are inhaled on a daily basis. If your horse is sensitive to these allergens the cough is a common and frustrating outcome. Protecting your horse from airborne allergens should help reduce coughing.

NOSTRILVET » THE SOLUTION
As horses breathe through their noses only it is imperative to try and keep their nasal tract in full working order to maintain a supply of unhindered supply of oxygen to the lungs.
