Lung support for horses centres around basic nutrition which is matched to the grass, hay or haylage the horse eats. Supplements should provide minerals and vitamins to support healthy function and create resilient horse lungs
Controlling exposure to lung irritants greatly supports the health of your horses’ lungs creating a strong breathing system so your horse can be active and athletic.
Sustaining healthy well functioning lungs can be accomplished through a variety of environmental management strategies:
Exposure to only well ventilated living areas
Steaming or soaking hay to minimise dust and spores
Feeding haylage rather than hay
Maintaining a low ammonia environment
Using bedding such as dust extracted wood chip or shavings to reduce plant fungal spores
Wetting bucket feeds to reduce dust
However, if you do have to deal with signs of lung irritation there are many options, including nutritional support for normal lung function. However basic nutrition matched to the grass, hay or haylage the horse eats should also be considered to create resilient normal functioning lungs.
