Allergic Rhinitis In Horses - McDowell's Herbal Treatments

Some horses especially in Summer can suffer from a runny nose, snorting, sneezing and snuffling which does not involve infection. This is more like hay fever in humans. This condition is mostly initiated by exposure to poor or dusty feed, or by fungal contaminants which leave the respiratory system overly sensitive.

The Sneeze-A-GG formulation contains herbs that have traditionally been used to nourish and settle the respiratory and immune system, which may help to reduce symptoms and oversensitivity. Studies done on the herbal extracts of Euphorbia and Chamomile in recent years have supported the traditional use of these herbs in practice. 

A follow-through program for 6 to 12 weeks after symptoms have ceased and for 6 weeks prior to the next season is advised. The tonic will need to be given continuously for a min of 3 weeks and can be maintained long term if necessary.

Chamomile tea can help too. A tea can be made by adding 4 dessertspoons of flowers to 1 litre boiling water and this is left to steep until cool. This can be split in half and used (flowers and all) to dampen down the horse's feeds morning and evening. Alternatively the whole flowers can be fed directly to the horse at a dosage rate of 1/2 cup per feed.
