Owning a horse comes with many different responsibilities. Aside from grooming and feeding and training the horse, you will also need to look after it’s well-being. Some equine issues are a bit subtle and the symptoms aren’t in-your-face, but others are a lot more overt that you can’t miss it. This is definitely true if your horse has a skin condition.
If you notice odd bumps or marks on your horse or even a bald spot, it’s safe to assume that something is wrong. Skin conditions don’t just appear out of nowhere so a big part of alleviating the issue is figuring out whether the condition has been triggered by a bacterial or viral infection, a bite from an insect or some other external force.
Some skin ailments are more serious than others and would need the assistance of an experienced vet to check out your horse, while others skin issues you could possibly treat on your own with the right knowledge and tools at your disposal.
